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.

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.

Power up/down volume adjustment?

I have an LG235C which you can set to no volume (silent) when you turn it on (power up) or turn it off (power down). Doesn't make any noise when you turn it on or off. Can you do this on the LG840G?

Yes, on mine, I can MUTE the ringer volume, and shutdown and startup the phone, and no sound is made. I can also set the phone to vibrate, and it will vibrate when turning off and vibrate again when turning back on.

Missi, this phone only has three "Buttons". Power, Volume up and Volume down. Everything else on the phone is "Touch" on the Glass type buttons. Yes it has a QWERTY keyboard or the standard T9 digital style tap keyboard available. Texting works well and consumes approx. 1/3rd of a minute per each SMS 160 character text message both inbound and outbound. The best part is that this is a Triple Minutes for Life phone, so for every 1 minute you pay for, you wind up with 3 on your phone. MMS messages that contain video or pictures will cost more to send and receive depending on the size of the pictures or attachments. Voice quality is outstanding on my phone and volume is nice and loud.

Question

Can someone tell me about the volume on this phone?

I see it says hearing aids compatible. I am wondering how loud I can increase the volume (for listening) on the this phone. I am hearing impaired - I wear aids but for some voices I really need to have a higher volume.

Is it adjustable?

Thanks Madman! I actually did buy the phone - it DOES have a hearing aid setting and a TTY setting.

Go to the Settings button on the main Home screen (looks like a little gear) and click that on. There is an option to turn the hearing aid setting off and on (off is a "O" and on is a "|") - if it is on, a teeny tiny ear will display at the top of the screen. :) It is quite cute!

So far, I am liking the sound features of this phone. I can individual set the Call volume different than the ring volume etc. And even the MP3 player (which I am still fooling around with and need to get a bigger card) is good volume. Still playing with the ring settings too and I still seem to miss the calls or maybe I do not have it set right. I usually do halfsie vibrate and ring.

In addition, you can also increase the volume with the volume button on the left side. So, so far so good. I haven't tried the TTY setting yet but I don't talk on the phone enough to test that or the volume settings with different voices.

I have CIC digital aids with no telecoil so my experience might be different but I don't get the feedback like I did with my old tracfone (which honestly was pretty low tech though).

Searching for a good headset with volume and speaker too.

I haven’t found a specific setting to enable a hearing aid option yet.
My best suggestion is to turn on the speaker phone before making and when answering a call
This will significantly increase the volume to what should be an acceptable level

Search eBay or Amazon for an LG T375 or LG T395. The LG 840g has been sold outside the U.S. for a couple of years under these model numbers. There is a seller from Spain that has listings for the silicone gel cases for $5-$6. Amazon has leather cases listed under those model numbers. There is another place www.fatorder.com that is supposed to be getting the gel cases for the LG 840g by late December. Currently listed as out of stock.

go to the Tracfone site(link listed below) and enter your area code there, you may find a completely different answer there, I have checked several of these where people say this WalMart site says "no", but the TracFone site says "yes" and list this phone and all the other TracFones phones that will work in their area:

Yes and you can transfer your minutes too. Just be sure you don't try to activate it before you call customer service or else you'll need to wait a week for them to mail you a new SIM card.

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

Trackfones and Net10 phones are both AT&T network based phones so they should work with AT&T towers.
