Maximum Auto Screen Lock and Back-light timer is 1 minute on this phone.
The Auto Screen Lock function can be turned off but with the on/off and volume buttons both being able to bring up the screen I wouldn't recommend it.

To adjust the Auto Screen Lock, Settings/Phone/Auto Screen Lock
To adjust the Backlight, Settings/Display/Backlight Timer

Go under message and click the right upper button next to inbox. go into message settings then go down to voicemail number and there you go there is your number. helpful hint you can dial that number on a landline and follow the promps and it will cost you nothing no mins off your phone if you do it that way.

(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

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.

walmart database was wrong for my zip too. phone is sold in our local walmart. works just great. i send WM an email and told them but they have not fixed the problem. i checked my zip on the TF web site to verify it would work before buying. Also some phones "will work" if you just buy the phone but a "bundle" and the same phone will NOT work. i sent an email about that too but no changes have been made to their web site. WM is missing out on potential revenue. too bad for WM.

From your phone dial in to Voicemail and after you hear messages press 4 for more options, press 2 for Administrative Options, press 1 to change your password.

You may also dial in from a different phone and after you hear the greeting press the asterisk and type your current password. Then press, 4,2,1.

Question

Why won't the Lg840G call out from a paired device?

I have an LG840G which I have paired with my phone system on my 2010 Toyota Venza. It had been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. I received a call which I answered on the car receiver, but got no response from the caller. I have tried calling out from the car and the cell phone makes the call, but immediately disconnects before I can talk. I took the car in to the Toyota dealer thinking that there might be a problem with the car's system, but the tech was able to connect his cell phone to the system and make and receive calls, so the problem seems to be with the cell phone. Any ideas?

You might want to try this method first to save your info and settings.
Go to; Bluetooth/My Devices/Options (icon top right of the screen)/Delete/Select "suspect" Device/Delete,
Turn the phone off and back on, then re-pair the two

On your Toyota your dealer serviceman already tried and tested pairing and it worked. That's good.

Now you can try a Reset on your Tracfone. I think you will lose your contacts and messages stored onboard the phone during this process. Before you start, remove the microsd card and don't do this Master Reset while inside your Toyota.

On your phone go to Settings then to Master Reset. This will return your phone to default settings, including Bluetooth.

You don't say if you use a hearing aid or not?
Phone has "hands free" speaker option that increases the volume quite a bit
It also has a built in TTY hearing aid function
