Yes you can keep your number and transfer your service to straight talk. However I have had problems in the past transferring numbers to straight talk and just ended up getting a new number to avoid the hassle. Hope this helps!

I'm sure you port your number from Verizon, but this phone runs on AT&T towers.

Yes, it has a slide-out physical keyboard. Here's a photo of the box on a Walmart display that shows the phone with the keyboard pulled out (copy-and-paste):

I am 50 yrs old. I find that the vibration is not very strong. The phone seems loud at the highest setting indoors, but I find it can be difficult to hear if it is in your purse and you are out and about.

Loud enough and good vibration. You also have the option of using the speakerphone feature.

Yes, and if it's coming from somebody you have in your address book (contacts), the name is also displayed.

Of course, this only applies when the call is incoming from an unblocked number.

Yes.

If you use the network directly without a WiFi (local wireless network) connection then you will use your minutes.

So start a WiFi connection before you launch the browser and there is no cost.

using wi-fi you do not use minutes. If connected to 3G instead you use your phone minutes.

Is your router type "N" ? You can find out by clicking on your computer's Wireless icon on the tasbar. Then when the wireless connections appear hover the mouse pointer over your connection does it show 802.11g or 802.11n?

For your cell phone's best wireless performance you should have 802.11n

Scroll on your phone to WiFi symbol. Click on it. You will have to have WiFi available to you or you will not connect. I have a router for my computers which also allows me to use WiFi. If you have a router then link your phone to it. You may need your password when you set up your router or if you have one already.

Tracfone has a usage monitor and Straight Talk does not. Other than that one difference they are the same phone. 840G has proprietary operating system, not an Android, same specs and features. Both have coverage thru AT&T and T-Mobile shared coverage.

The phone is the same, the way you pay to access is different.

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.
