Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk LG840G Cell Phone

Question

Adding contacts

I can't get the full keyboard (horizontal) when adding my contacts, and T9 doesn't work for names. It works when I go to text messages, just not when adding new contacts.
Is this a malfunction, or just a bad design for this phone?

When you get the num-pad, there is a button in the top right corner. When you press it, one option is "Input method," and you can choose "Keyboard." For whatever reason, this isn't always available (ie sometimes when online), but it looks like it works for entering contacts.

When adding/editing info to the contact list select any field press the options icon (upper right corner) /Input method/Keyboard

But unfortunately you will have to do this for each field in which you wish to use the full keyboard, which in my opinion qualifies as a bad design

It's the same phone but through Tracfone instead of StraightTalk. You can get the Tracfone version for around $40 on Amazon, I think.

LG840 is sold in many stores. The difference is [a] the carrier, [b] the phone details, and [c] the return policy.

The 'gotcha' is usually in fine print that few bother to read.

Before you the buy the phone, determine the national carrier and the store return policy before you purchase it. Some have a 15 day in-store only return, some have 30 day return, and some have a NO return policy.

Check the facts.

You should be able to. When you activate your phone online there should be an option to transfer your current number to the new phone as long as your old phone is still active. Or you could call Straight Talk and have them talk you through it.

Does the LG840g straight talk phone accept the $30.00 and the $45.00 plan so I can change from month to month?

Short answer is yes, but I would stick with a plan, because this phone is not worth paying $45/$60 per month to use. It only does about 75% of what a real smart phone does.

It is the best choice for the $30 plan, but for the $45 plan choose a real smart phone to take advantage of what you're paying for. You won't be happy with the limitations of the 840.

FYI, I love the 840. It is by far, the best budget phone around. I am a light user, on tracfone. But if I were going to pay $45 a month, I'd choose a real smart phone.

I see someone responded that you can get a cover on Amazon--please provide the link for this, as I have been unable to find a cover (not a case) for this phone. I would like a hard cover, not a gel cover.
