Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

While it's not a smartphone, it has a lot of features that smartphones have. It takes decent photos and videos, has wi-fi connectivity, tho I never use that. It's just used as a telephone. Triple minutes are a bonus. With an inexpensive USB to MicroUSB cable (as low as $3 online), you can download the pics & video to your pc without using minutes (a couple sample pics included here.) This tracfone is an inexpensive way to have a cell phone if you don't use it a lot. We get by on a 3 mo 60 min card (=180 min with triple minutes) for 19.99+tax every 90 days. We use it for emergencies only, so minutes just pile up. One note: If you check to see if the phone will work in your area (mine is St. Paul, MN) the result may show it doesn't work. It shows it will not work in my area. But, since I already had one, I knew it did work. This one was a gift. I'm not sure why it comes up that way on the online test.

I had never even used a cell phone before I bought this on Black Friday. I figured TracFone was the way to go for someone who would not use a cell phone much. Then it was a matter of figuring which TracFone to buy. The LG 840G was the only Triple Minutes TracFone that the WalMart had in stock and looked more advanced than cheaper phones. I also bought a Fellowes Tough Camo Universal Cell Phone Case for it. I see you can buy skin for an LG 840G over the Internet. The LG 840G TracFone is not very practical for surfing the Net, especially when you are using up TracFone minutes, but it does have WiFi. The LG 840G does have AccuWeather on it. There doesn’t seem to be a Java radio app for it, but I use Yourmuze.FM over the Internet. I tried Opera Mini browser, UC Browser and One Browser, but I decided I would stick with the standard LG browser. The LG 840G doesn’t come with a flashlight, but I downloaded a colored flashlight Java app onto mine from Opera.com.

I got this phone to replace my old TracFone flip-phone. I belong to SafeLink Wireless and can't use an actual Android Smartphone, so I checked this phone out and am very happy with it. It is Wi-Fi capable, so I can use the web wherever there is a Wi-Fi signal (my house, restaurants, etc.) to check my account, weather, movies...whatever. Got it on sale too for $39.95 which was a great price for what it is. It has a built in MP3 player and comes with a 2gb memory card, but it can be upgraded to use a 32gb memory card so you can take a lot of music with you. You have to buy the data cable and ear-buds separately but they only cost like $2.00 to $4.00 each. I recommend getting a case for it so you don't crack the crystal display by putting it in your back pocket. All-in-All I am really happy with this phone being an in-between to the old flip-phone and Smart Phone. And it is usable with SafeLink Wireless.

I don't know about other people. but if you want a phone that does what it said it would this is it. problem is people want more then what comes with the phone. if they read , it will tell them what it does before they buy it. and it does what it said it will. nothing more nothing less. so read first before you buy. this is not an apple phone with all the bells and whistles. but it is a good phone and it will work just fine. if you search the internet without using the built in wy fi. you will get nailed with minutes. but but but it you link your phone to your wifi. you can email. search the web and pretty much anyting else. for free. just don't expect to much. this is a phone not a portable computer. so use common sense people . when you purchase a phone . make sure it will do what you want. or go else were. but best bang for thebuck on this phone thank you.

A good upgrade from the LG800G

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I upgraded to the LG840g from the 800g as it had been about two years and I knew the product had a limited lifespan. The 840g is a superior product in many ways; the touch pad is more sensitive, the camera is more pixilated, the sound seems better, the Fone picks up WiFi so you don't have to use minutes to access the web, the text type is larger, and so on..... The reason I didn't give it five stars is I found the QWERTY pad to be too sensitive for my touch - although that may get better with time and I found there was no way to install 911 emergency on speed dial as I had on the 800g. I also found the on-line tutorial to be lacking in information on setting up the fone. Other than that I think the LG840g is a very fine product for the price and I would recomend it to anyone wanting to use the TracFone system.

  • A. I don't know what's going on with the Walmart zip code check to see if a phone works in an area, several times it's told me a certain phone won't work in my area, but the Tracfone site says it will and my local Walmart is selling that phone. I have bought 2 different phones over the past 3 years from my Walmart that supposedly won't work in my zip code and they work very well.

  • A. In my area Walmart site said no. Go to Tracfone site /coverage to be sure. My guess if they sell it in your store it will work in your area. It did in mine. Checked 15857 and you have a lot of phones to choose from. LG840G works there.

I was all ready to purchase this phone for me and my son; however, the Walmart feature at the top of the page says this won't work in my zip code area. I know the Walmart in my town sells a very similar Tracfone, which I find it hard to believe they'd do if it didn't actually WORK. So I visited the Tracfone website and used their zip code coverage search. Their site says this phone WILL work in my zip code area. I am now thoroughly confused. Any help would be appreciated.

  • A. I am on second model of the LG Tracfone. Online site has always indicated no coverage this area. Tracfone map indicates no coverage this area. BY THIS AREA, USING A ZIP CODE. The WM 37 miles away has sold both phones, set both up using a different Zip Code. I have never asked but have had non stop service with phones. Perhaps you should go into a larger store and ask for setup. When I asked Tracfone to assist in setup, representative tried to set me up with a tower over 50 miles away, a town I had heard of only on the NOAH Severe Weather Reports.

  • A. The TracFone web. site, coverage locator is the one to rely upon. Wal Mart site does the same in my area as well. They (Wally world) don't seem to update their site. One would think that they would want too. Good Luck.
