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 And maps can be out of date.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.

don't understand your question,-- if you have an old phone and want to transfer everything to this new phone, yes you can---if you have an old phone and just want to buy this new phone and activate it thus having two tracfones, yes you can---if you just have an old phone that is de-activated and want to re-activate it, yes you can, but you have to get a new sim card from Tracfone, once a tracfone is de-activated that sim card is not usable again, must receive a new one(they have told me there is no charge, they mail it to you)

answer 2
Maybe.

Some phones are easily reactivated and others are not.

Example, I recently tried to re-activate a 500G and it required a new SIM so Tracfone had to send it.

And if the phone is older that's a factor.

You should call Tracfone Customer Service and see what they say or just buy an airtime card and try re-activation using their website. If it doesn't work you'll still own the airtime card.

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

You have to buy minutes/time on tracfone's web site, or from stores that carry tracfone minute/time cards. Their web site also does have "plans", so you can check them out there.

New Tracfones come with 10 to 20 complimentary minutes, to try out the new phone before you buy airtime.

From your phone dial in to Voicemail and after you hear messages press 4 for more options, press 2 for Administrative Options, press 1 to change your password.

You may also dial in from a different phone and after you hear the greeting press the asterisk and type your current password. Then press, 4,2,1.
