why will the lg840g not work in the 38619 aire

If you have AT&T GSM Service in your area, this phone should work just fine... Got mine last night and it works great. It will also work on T-Mobile if that is the prominent provider in your area. The SIM included with the phone will determine which network the phone will be placed on.
This link may help you to determine what network the phone is configured for when buying a phone. If you have an existing phone, its even easier.

My guess is that it will work in the 38619 area code. Walmart has probably not yet updated the "coverage checker" for this newly released phone.

FYI, I plugged in my own zip code as well as the zip codes for all major cities in my area. The coverage checker told me that the phone would not work in any of them. I then tried the zip codes of major cities in other states. Supposedly the phone will not work in any of them, either.

The LG 840G should work at your location. It was a matter of the "coverage checker" not being updated.

Try your zip code now and it will show that the phone will work.

According to Tracfone website the LG840g will work in your zip area. I think Walmart's zip code lookup for service is not updated. If you get AT&T cell coverage in your area, the phone should work.

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.

Question

Getting conflicting reviews as far as coverage is concerned.will it work in34788 zip code area?

I bought a new std size sim from Tmobile as I was planning to buy an unlocked gsm prepaid phone. Bought their refill card also. I like lg840g phone. If I buy it am I going to be able to put that sim and use it in 34788 zip code? My apple I pad has AT&T sim and it works fine here. Which network do tracfone and straight talk use ? Or whose sim does this phone lg840g originally use? Thank you.

According to a Tracfone review site, concerning the LG 840g, they usually use AT&T or sometimes T-mobile which are both GSM. FYI: Tracfone is a locked phone and you can't change the SIM. Don't know what Straight Talk uses.

There should be good coverage in your area.
But there's a small gap around Lake Don and larger ones around Lake Kerr and Lake Butler

i have wondered the same thing, the book that comes with it is not very clear. I did notice however that when checking out the phone that there is an option, do you want to save the picture to the memory card or phone.
