The user manual can usually be downloaded from the carrier website. Tracfone for instance has a download site for the phones.

If you did not get the user manual contact your reseller for assistance.

This phone does not have an actual GPS function ,,, If you'll note it says "GPS capabilities"
What they are referring to is you can access Google earth via the net and use it
(rather misleading if you ask me)

I have this phone with Tracfone, and there is NO GPS on it, although I have read that you might be able to download a GPS option---I have not tried this.

Walmart. sells both the Straight Talk and the Tracfone version of the LG840G buy whichever model you prefer

answer 2
The LG800 is sold by Tracfone and other companies. The 'G' designates the national carrier.

It is important to understand that not all cell phones work the same on every carrier. You may be able to talk and text at Company A, but not at Company B.

Not all phones work in the same service area. Look at a tower map in your location. Generally speaking phones advertised to work nationally in 99% of U.S. communities do. This does not mean a "no-contract" phone from Company A will perform the same as their contract phones. Very often this phone is limited to regional use.

Straight Talk and Tracfone live up to their promises.

You should really call Straight talk first to find out exactly what you need for your area. Even though it says on walmart website that it will work for your area, it's not neccessarily true. I had to return one & start over because it said it worked & it didn't. It totally depends on the TOWERS in your area!

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.

answer 2
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
