No, probably not. This phone uses a proprietary operating system so the Tango Android app won't work.

how do I transfer my safelink phone to my new tracfone keeping all my minutes

Answers
answer 1
(update) I just read another post saying safelink is contracted through TracFone like Straight Talk is.
If that's the case my last reply may be in error, and it may be possible to transfer your safelink minutes over to your TracFone after all

answer 2
To transfer your old providers # to your TracFone via phone call (1-800-867-7183) or on line at http://www.tracfone.com
But if your asking if you can also transfer the minutes you had on your safelink account to your TracFone account the answer is no.
You may only transfer minutes from one TracFone to another not from outside providers

http://www.tracfone.com/questions.jsp
To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.

The triple minutes are automatic. Purchasing a 60-minute card will yield 180 total minutes of airtime.

You have to buy the phone that says 'triple minutes'. When you buy a 60 minute card it will automatically give you 180 minutes on your phone. Simple.

No.

This is not an Android phone, not a smart phone either.

You can install some JAVA apps, downloadable at getjar.com but nothing new or phone, just old games, Google Maps, and Opera Mini Browser.

You can move your phone number to your new Tracfone from an old Tracfone, and you should also be able to also move your remaining minutes from the old phone to the new phone.

Once you do so, your SIM card in your old phone will no longer be functional, and Tracfone will need to send you a new SIM card to activate the old phone. You can get a new number during the activation process or "PORT" an existing number you own to the phone if you wish. "Porting" takes about a week to complete in my experience, and can be done vie the Tracfone Web Site.

Yes.
Two games come with the phone, UNO and a trial version of Asphalt 4: Elite Racing.
>The LG840G, only uses "Java" (.jar) file app's.<
.You can find many free .jar file games on line, along with several videos on YouTube on how to install and configure correctly.
.You can also buy games for "minutes" from the TracFone games link, on the home page of the browser.

answer 2
There are a few basic games that will come on the phone. You can purchase games from Tracfone/Gameloft I thing there is Solitaire, UNO and a Racing type game possibly poker or some type of gambling type game, but there is definitely NOT a lot of selection and nothing is free.

I have seen places online that claim that you can get games from them but I would not trust them. Seemed a little shady.
