No it does not have the sliding keyboard. It has a virtual qwerty keyboard that can be used for texting, entering url's and contacts. Everything else is the old numeric type keyboard.

when your call is connected, there is a icon of a speaker with a little dot beside it in the lower left part of screen , but if you don't see that, in the upper right where the menu button is , touch this and it will have option for speaker phone.

when you receive a call, AFTER you "accept call" you will see a small speaker icon, click on that and the little circle will turn green, then "speaker phone " is activated--- when you are making a call, you will see the speaker icon immediately, again, click on that icon, the small circle will turn green and your "speaker phone" is activated

Question

will Lg 840g pair with Ford sync bluetooth?

Has anyone had problems pairing The sync Bluetooth in Ford vehicles to LG 840G Trac. We tried, didn't work. Dealership could not make it pair as well. Spoke with Trac Corporate; they could not understand why didn't work either. Quick response appreciated.

Max, yes you CAN pair the two, even though everyone says it's not possible. First, configure the phone -- ALL contacts must be stored on the SIM card, rather than phone memory. The phone will usually store contact to "memory" by default... you'll have to swap them to the SIM card in the "contacts" list. Also, the telephone numbers have to be entered with the "1" preceding the number. Sync won't recognize the entries, without that format. Ok, once you have that completed, the phone is ready. Now, go into the "phone" settings in the Sync system and delete ALL info from the previous phone, including the contact list #phonebook#. Then, switch on the Bluetooth on the LG840...the Sync system should walk you through the pairing process and then ask if you want to "download phonebook". Tell it "yes". After that, you should be good to go. Mine works as well as it did with the Galaxy S3 that was previously connected. I hope this helps!!

You know, one would think that 'Bluetooth' operating specs. would be the same from device to device. As you have found there are problems. Could be as simple as a wire bundle shielding the rec. antenna port or simply, will not work. If the reception port is visible is there a 'film' of protection over the trim somewhere that is still in place. (this for wireless). For plugin, it isn't impossible for small mini harness to be defective. Try another. I hope any of this helps. Good Luck. ( i am trained in 2-way Radio Communications)

you will only use your minutes if you click on browser without being connected to a wifi. connect to a wifi first, then click on your browser and you won't use any of your minutes. i suggest downloading the opera browser. it is a much better browser.

No.

But you must connect to WiFi before you start your browser.

If you open the browser first then you are not using WiFi.

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

I doubt it. It might depend on the phone, you will probably have to call TracFone. Sometimes you can use the sim card, but nowadays they aren't so compatible or just won't let you do it.
