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 have to purchase a separate cable (if you don't already have one# that will allow you to transfer photos from this phone #or computer, etc.) The only thing that can be transferred from one Tracfone to another is the phone # & current minutes. Hope this helps. I contacted Tracfone and this is what they told me.

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.

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.

No.

I mean yes.

I mean roaming is not applicable to Tracfone prepaid, with regard to cost. This phone uses both AT&T and it shares T-Mobile where available and there's no cost change for it.

Does the LG840G work with Verizon cell towers (or ATT or T-mobile) - or is this only determined when phone is activated from your location?

When you buy the phone, it comes with either an AT&T or T-Mobile sim card depending on your area. If you have bad reception, call customer service and they will mail you a new sim card. I had problems with T-Mobile service and they mailed me an AT&T sim card.

"G" in the model name shows it's a GSM phone which is ATT and T-Mobile.

If you're looking for Verizon you would look for a model with "C" or CDMA.

Here's a list of phones available thru Tracfone prepaid, no all are available thru walmart.com

Does Tracfone have available an android phone?

YES. LG 39C OPTIMUS DYNAMIC II . Bigger 3.8" screen. Same 3 times refill card minutes offered. Don't own one #have 15 cells# but reading the reviews it seems like the best non-flip Tracfone. Has Android 4.1 Operating System. I believe it has a little less talk time #battery usage# at 3.5 hours vice the 3.7 hours of the LG 840G. It is the one I would get.
The LG 39C also uses the more reliable Verizon network vice the good but slightly less coverage area of the LG 840G.
Cost is more at $99.
