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.

Yes. They are the same phone with separate programming for each provider.

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.

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, 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):

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!

If you are asking specifically about this phone, it is going to run on AT&T when used with a Straight Talk plan.

If you are asking if you can take this phone and use it on an AT&T plan, unfortunately, the official answer is no. When you buy a phone from Straight Talk, you agree to use it with Straight Talk plans only.

No you have to have an att phone or an unlocked phone to be able to use the att service. With this phone you will have to transfer your service to straight talk.
