1pigslayer: anyone else have the problem with the internet and the wifi disconnecting
constantly with net 10?
Catzilla: Tracfone came out with several Android phones a while ago. I still have my
LG840 as a backup but I really like the new phone. You still get the same
deal on the android phones and they add data megs as well. So if you have a
triple-minutes-for-life phone, a 60 minute card will get you 180 talk
minutes, 180 text messages and 180 megs of data. I recommend the ZTE Valet.
cgrscott: Opera Mini was useless on the Tracfone LG 800G. Sounds like it works on
the LG 840G.
Senthuren Sivarupan: I got this phone last month. overall, its a great phone. my only qualms
with this is the internet browser where u need to use the old touchpad, and
youtube where the videos pop up small.
cgrscott: I did not know it lets you access Wifi. That's a plus.
Lianna Wright: Can someone tell me how to download Opera mini? went to the website to
download and it needs to be downloaded direct to the phone, but on this
phone it's hard to enter the URL and get it to download. How can I
download to my hard drive and move over to the phone?
Lianna Wright: Next time, go over all the ports and how to turn it on.
missy loves: I have this phone and I love it!!!
Claire Darvish: youtube does work on that phone i am on it right now actually but the
screen is very small
sandra johnson: I like that digital ruler you are using. Where can I buy one?
multimousemed: Only two gripes. #1 you don't get a regular text keyboard for filling out
text boxes(you have to do it the old way like on a touch pad phone) I have
no idea in H why they did that. It is very annoying and it eats up your
data from not getting to type things in fast enough. #2 the youtube players
screen is a quarter of the screen size. So videos show up as a tiny square
in the middle of the screen and there is no way to hack around either
issue. Otherwise this is a very good phone and at over a year mine ha
sbeen dropped and left in sub zero temps many times, even got rained on
overnight when I left it on the hood of the mower:/ still works perfectly.
However I am upgrading to the newest Android phones tracfone has now,
because the youtube player, internet browsing and getting an actual
keyboard for text boxes....will all be way better than on the LG840G. Don't
get me wrong, the 840 is a great phone, but it is not an Android or that
type of smartphone. It is very inexpensive and you get A LOT for the price.
Really I don't need an Android and the LG840 is overkill for my needs, but
I like tech I want a full keyboard for internet browsing and Tracfone has
Androids now and I merely want something new to play with:) So I give the
LG840 an 8 out of 10. It would be a 10 if the keyboard and video playback
problems were better. So for 50 bucks it's great, even cheaper now because
of the new Androids coming in. I saw a new LG840G TracFone at Dollar
General for 40 bucks yesterday. You cannot beat that.
Rich Kretzschmar: My Dad just picked up this Bad Boy. I like your Praduct review. Now if
you could secure Cali Lewis (Luria Petrucci) to add a byte of spice to thIS
song and dance I.T. just might bring a tear to my 1/64 eYe.
leo rico: I was about to get this phone... in fact I've bought it and Immediately
returned it because I realized that the thing didn't have andriod, I didnt
like that it didnt have google play, and that is the kind of phone I wanted
to upgrade to, an android that was at least kit kat with google play. I
also didnt like how it made a sound every time one touched it.... so I got
the prepaid huawei

Carmen White: I want to put java apps on my lg 840g phone so I can get opera mini. What
website would I go to, to download java apps with jar files extension? I
found a website but it didn't work. If anyone can help I would appreciate
Lianna Wright: Can I use this phone to use a "Square" type device to charge credit cards?
Or do I have to go for the Android phone?
multimousemed: Be aware also that this phone is easy to lose because it is so light and
thin. It slips between cushions, car seats, pants pockets, easy to drop
from sliding out your hand, gets lost in second if you don't keep watch of
it. I swear it takes off on its own.
QbidMusicandMore: Youtube videos play on it just find too.
Shooting Star Studios: I need help!!! how do you set the time and date every time I click
something with time it goes the alarm and it wont work. please reply back
as soon as you can.
Pinworm X: Cool. I'll stick with my flip phone. Thanks for the review.
Devon: I was interested in the HSN 1400 min for a year deal with this phone. Were
you able to install and use Pandora (I'd like to bluetooth stream it
through my car stereo). Also do you know how many minutes it would deduct
for 1 hr of streaming pandora?
DOSBoxMom: Thanks for the info! I've since signed up for Ting, and purchased a refurb
LG Optimus S through them (the Sprint-specific twin of my daughter's LG
Optimus V). I cancelled my Virgin Mobile service earlier this month, reset
my VM Kyocera Rise to factory settings, and am currently selling the
Kyocera Rise on eBay. I used to own a Tracfone with a "Blackberry"-style
QWERTY keyboard, but botched setup & never used it - so that went into 1 of
those "recycling mailers" one gets w/purchase of a phone.
Peggy Holt: Amazon has the cheapest....but I need help in getting the pictures off the

Walter HIll: hi. do you know the call rates? is it 1 unit for 1 minute? roaming charges?
Claire Lowry: I think tracfone is safelink. Just as they apparently have something to do
with walmart's no-contract cell service. Not certain...but yeah, I've heard
a thing or 2 about these items.
Neenah Guy: Excellent post!!! Thanks Save On.... May switch from my 505c to this...wish
it had voice dialing like my 505..but may learn to live without it.
