MisterYouOkay: I prefer people to skip this phone and stick with an Android based. LG
Optimus Fuel is running Android 4.4 Kit Kat and you'll get more out of it
chris spawn: how do you get youtube to work on it mine dosent play the videos when i use
you tube it tells me it cant connect
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: +QbidMusicandMore mine is still going strong my wife is still using it. It
gets as a stronger signal then the LG does.
Catzilla: Tracfone recently came out with several Android phones. I've got the ZTE
Valet. You still get the same deal with airtime, only it's split up into 3
categories: minutes, texts and megs. So if you get a 60 minute airtime card
on a triple-minutes-for-life phone, you get 180 talk minutes, 180 texts and
180 megs of data. Also, with the Google Play store, you'll have your choice
of several browsers, instant message and e-mail programs. The phones also
have WiFi and will use that automatically if you're near an open WiFi spot.
Mario Echavarria: I went in to dollar general in south Texas and got one for 29.99 and a
refill card for 19.99 for over $60.00 that is a good deal.
Maria Amill: Thanks, helpful!
525Lines: The ones with pink cases are now going for $10-$15 on eBay.
John Berning: Thanks for the video.......I ordered this phone yesterday, as an upgrade to
a phone somewhat like your old one. Latest price from Tracfone is 39.99
with free shipping. Looks like a great decision at this point!
John Z: I just bought a Tracfone ZTE android phone and it stated on their website
that it would work in my zip code area...HA,,,Not...it uses Verizon in
which there is no Verizon cell towers close by. I have to get on my roof to
make a call! So I am going backwards to Sim card technology because my
older lg800g worked fine with reception most anywhere in my area! I just
ordered this LG840G phone because it is newer than my lg800g with more
features...besides how can I burn up 2,000 mins using a android I can't
call from? I just hope I ordered the right phone!
LEO1WOLF: Personal experience: priced good, web-browsing VERY frustrating, but don't
need as badly on my phone. A little over a year old & the Touch Screen
just stopped functioning on my LG840G. IF you go here:
They won't tell you on the website that this bloody thing needs to be
replaced, you have to chat with them to find that out. I'm doing all the
research I can but am not finding a lot of help on this subject. Could it
be one bad TracFone, one bad model from LG or is it par for the course for
Touch Screens in general? (It's only my first, so I would certainly hope
the latter is simply just not the case - - otherwise there'd be a lot more
reports of defective phones.) I'm VERY hesitant in recommending this to
anyone unless it's their first & don't have any other knowledge to draw
Ben Kent: This phone is garbage. I have been regretting it ever since I bought it.
Browser sucks. No qwerty keyboard when you want it (browser has you input
text with a standard like phone keypad, WTF?) Trash. Trash. Trash. DO
NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!
Ty Siharat: Looks like a great feature fone.. looks nice.
Al Phelps: Tracfone is now selling a re-conditioned one for $10 plus shipping.
James Wilson: I Truly Enjoy My LG840g and Mine Came With TRIPPLE MINUTES Deal When I
Bought Mine. I Started Out Getting Those $*20.00 Minutes Cards, But
After Playing Round With Them After Get My LG840g TracFone, I Just Start
Getting The YEAR CARD and Have Minutes On Hand NO Matter What and NEVER
WORRY About Running Out Time, No Matter Where I am. IT'S A GREAT PHONE
and Get You One and Truly Get A YEALY MINUTE CARD and ENJOY YOURSELF...!
Elijah Andersen-Sparrow: i got it on newegg for 16.99
Paula France: $ 20 for 180 minutes does not sound like a good value. I am currently
purchasing 1000 minutes for 25.00 from Net10. I have thought about
purchasing this phone, but 180 minutes for 20 bux does not sound good to
Macedonia Choirs: I love mind, Best TracFone I ever used. I just hate I cracked the Mother
board when I dropped it in the toilet.
eric pilcher: I have this phone & it's so so at best i can't access web worth a crap
phone reception is ok no apps i like the no contract part & phone is
priced cheap .
animatedsquid: Its not a horrible phone. It has wifi which most old phones dont have. btw
now its 15$ on amazon.
KiddCoppin: It's a smartphone...
Rotsen Puriran: Hey, how did you activated your sim card?
Gerardo Flores: does it let you watch youtude video becase i have one just like it and it
says network unable even if my wifi is working fine
QbidMusicandMore: That Motorolla was my first cell phone. The calls were incredibly clear on
it for a cheap phone. Unfortunately one day it just quit working.
FuzzyElf: It's a QWERTY keyboard, named after that row of letters. It's not really
quirky at all.
CovertBrony: +FUzzyBUnnyBOoties it is hard to argue with you on this phone and i wish
that tracfone would make the lg 840g better just like the android
counterpart exept it's looks that looks ugly as hell
J.E. S.: thanks for the review! I was wondering how do you download movies, apps,
music, etc.? and is it free? one more thing, is the email free (and do
you have to be connected to wifi for it to work) or does it use airtime
Algees215: So when your on the internet it uses up your minutes?
alison harvey: one of my pictures i have taken with this phone has suddenly shown up on my
screen .. not like a wallpaper but like a little stamp in the bottom right
corner .. i have deleted the pic from my phone and now it is still like a
little stamp sitting there and has a camera with " no image " written in
it ... i have no idea how it got there or how to remove it ... any ideas ?
niraha: Can you have KIK, Lumosity, or Instagram on this?
CovertBrony: the games you download for free you have to use the computer to change the
screen size and getting rid of java d-pad on touchscreen game that is
completely useless and preventing you form playing it including apps and
the youtube videos are small instead of fits the screen like it should be
CovertBrony: i believe the phone can have android but it will be the lowest version
CovertBrony: the lg 840g from tracfone does feel like a 5$ cell phone most of the time
when you are on apps and games but it is better for calling/txting and mp3
music otherwise it's better to save up to get a smartphone
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: I do have opera on it but kind of like the default browser better even
though it is hard to type in web addys.
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: Nothing wrong with that. That is exactly what I use mine for also. I am
quite familiar with the rotary phones and busy signals. When answering
machines came out I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread LOL.
tornmask: this is a darn great no nonsense touch screen cell phone. thank you so much
for this presentation, cheers!
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: Very nice. I am going to have to look it up. It sounds like exactly what I
am looking for when I upgrade.
909chuck: Some of the 840s have "dots" and one of the other reviews said they DO
adjust screen brightness. If yours doesn't and it's not dirty or covered by
a cover, maybe yours doesn't have the feature. Try it in semi-dark, with a
small flashlight and see if it changes brightness. Good luck, it's a good
stalkingalizee: Virgin Mobile has $35 pre-paid plans with Android 4.1.3 phones starting at
$120. My mom has one as her first smartphone and she loves it. If you don't
have access to Google Play, you are missing out on all the great free apps
out there that make it so cool to own a phone.
izzy simpson: I own this phone and it sucks
CuppyCAKEman: No refurbished is not a heck of a deal, but it is an ok deal. Refurbished
phones are very easy to break thats why the are so cheap (since the phone
has been broke already) so I would not really get a refurbished phone
myself but if you take good care of it, it should be okay ( and im not a
compete tech expert but i know some). But good video anyway.
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: I guess I didn't think about it that way. I just figured some one bought
the phone and didn't like it so they returned it.
Abigail Faith: I purchased this cell phone for $39.99 on the tracfone website with free
shipping. Great deal. :)
KatiuskaWook: Can I use whatsApp? :)
todayitsyou: Nice and appropriate title for your video, as it certainly isn't a true
"Smart Phone" but fools a lot of people into thinking it is because of it's
touchpad, which isn't always that sensitive. I have a number of Smarter
cellphones that have better/more sensitive touchpads.
Fewerbog Ledend: Is it worth buying right now for Texting ,games,and social things such as
Mulder25j: Fuzzy, After I installed the memory card I was unable to text/email images.
In order to send images I have to move them to 'Phone Memory', then
text/email them. Could I have change the setting when I installed the
memory card? Thanks
Barack Clinton: I never found out what they were but covered them with black tape. Had no
effect on the phone.
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: It is fairly quick. I have never timed it but I only charge it every 3 days
or so and I believe it takes about 1 hour to charge.
rumpmuffins: i would also suggest getting opera mini on the 840g because it offers the
QWERTY keyboard for easier typing
FUzzyBUnnyBOoties: As for iheart radio I am not sure. I have not tried any radio apps on it.
If you do please let me know I would love to try it myself. And yes if you
lose WIFI it will try to switch to 3g but a warning screen will come up
asking you if you want to continue on 3g so it wont waste your minutes.
