if you are going by the WalMart search, ignore that,--go to the tracfone.com site(link listed below), I think the WalMart search says "no" to all searches, there must be a problem with their search program,--this LG840g is a great phone and is usable all over the country but check with the tracfone site to be sure:

Each phone operates on a frequency band so you may not have coverage in your area. And maps can be out of date. You should call Tracfone or post a message on their Facebook wall for fast answer.

Question

case/skins for LG 840g

I find many skin/cases for the LG VS840, but none for this LG 840g, is this the same phone? If not, is it the same physical size so that the cases/skins will fit correctly? (thank you to anyone who can answer my question)

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.

I contacted LG twice with that question They sent me a list of possible sites to look on to find accessories none of which had the 840g listed. In neither response from them did/could/would they tell me a model # that was compatible with the 840g

No you can't watch Youtube videos 'on minutes'. This has to do with Tracfone not allowing streaming video.

How do you change the contact list to show last names first?

I would like to sort on last names!

The only way I can see is if you type the last name in the first name space, and then type the first name in the last name space, so it will then sort in reverse order than it usually does (it sorts now by first name, so by typing things in reverse, it should sort by last name)

I'm afraid there's no option for that.
If that's how you want contacts to appear on the list you will have to individuality inter the last names first on there contact info page

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 plan. It means if you put a 20.00 card on it, the minutes shown on that card will triple automatically, you won't have to put in a code.
