Christian Sweeney: Trailing edge of cellphone technology? Oh my dear god, I paused the video
and I laughed my freaking ass off. This phone was advertised as a smart
phone, but its crap! freakING USELESS PIECE OF crap I PAYED 50 DOLLARS
heather vineyard: has anyone noticed that when texting and your about to go to the second
page that that it takes 15 spaces from you, example you start to text so
you have 0/160 spaces for numbers/letters/spaces, so when you get to
160/160 you go to the next page and it's 15/160 and same with pg3 and so
on, and if you want to use special numerics then watch carefully because
you can go from 0/160 to 1/70 with just one hit. suck don't it, just
another way for them to steal from us.
jusmeyahoo: Hi, I have a texting question.
Is their a way to know who sent the text before opening it? I end up
paying to open a text from some one I don't know is their a way to fix
James Webster: i got triple min plus 1400 . really nice phone . love it
Tyler C: does the keyboard only pop up in landscape style or can you type in
portrait style as well? it's a lot easier for me to text in portrait style
rumpmuffins: and also great video because this is the only video i found that shows how
to customize the shortcuts screen and i was wondering how. Thanks and again
John Doe: The tracfone LG 840 g roams and uses fractions of minutes every time it
loses and regains the signal even when not in use. FYI. I made the mistake
of buying one. mine wasted 100 minutes before I figured out why. had to
switch back to my old phone
sistar13: Does this phone have instant messaging where you can see a conversation
with someone or is it where you have messages in an inbox and sent box?
nashiPAGE: Thanks :D
xadam2dudex: this is being sold on HSN for $99.95 with 1 yr service and 1400 minutes....
there is another tracfone a Samsung S390 for the same price and
minutes..triple minutes for life on both
rumpmuffins: i think the one i bought was well worth the money cause it only cost me $20
for a refurb :P
Joziah Turner: Shiity ass phone
OYAHHH: Ben, It's every individual message.
DaChicago3: Excellent review
sistar13: Thank you for responding to my question! Are there any tracfone phones that
show a conversation with someone or thread like messages?
OYAHHH: nashiPAGE, I went onto a Google page and went through probably 20 of their
"language" options. Basically Google would allow me to change the language
in which the page was displayed. I know a tiny bit of Mandarin. I saw what
I was pretty sure was a Chinese language variant and the built-in browser
had no problems displaying it. I did not see a Japanese Kanji option, but
keep in mind there was no English indicator of what language I was changing
to, so I just looked for something "odd".
Ariel P.: Does it charge you when you use the browser on wifi?
April TracFone: Hi Sistar13, this is April of TracFone Wireless. The LG 840G is not capable
of showing your Inbox messages like a conversation or a thread, same with
iPhone or Android devices. Additionally, you will see your received
messages in the phone's Inbox, while the sent messages will be stored to
the sent items folder. Should you have any question, feel free to send us
an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you!
carter morrison: I just ordered this phone I had the 800g and it sucked so I'm replacing it
with this phone
loughrey101: Hi, how do you get that time app with current and Dallas time? Thanks!
April TracFone: Hi James, this is April from TracFone Wireless. Good to know that your
minutes are up. We appreciate your support with the service. If you have
queries or anything in mind, just send us an email at
THATGAMER TROY: yes i have it but some time all apps wont process
Sandra Gallahar: Thanks for this review. Just got my tracfone and so far am loving it. As a
non-techy I was a little nervous about using some of the bells and
whistles. (You have to know that the phone it is replacing was 10+ years
old.) It's great to know that "finally" I am joining everyone else in the
21st century. Once again thank you for your clear explanations and
mfuji02: GPS? :/
April TracFone: Hi Tyler C, this is April of TracFone Wireless. The LG 840G has a QWERTY
keyboard in landscape view, and there is no option to change it. Should you
have any question, please send us an email at
TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you.
Chris Herke: My mother purchased one of these phones, and she has tried calling her
sister in Australia to no avail. She is doing everything right, and she
keeps getting a (restriction 54 code) which prevents her from making the
call. This is basically saying she is on the wrong line, what ever that
means. Her cheaper Trac phone would allow her to make the calls with no
problem. When calling Trac phone, the reps. are stumped. Any ideas on that?
TheBikemaster94: yeah I just ordered one with triple min. and a card for 70 on amazon
OYAHHH: I also viewed the same page in what I recognized as an Arabic language. It
displayed that language just fine from what I could tell. Good luck,
perhaps April from Tracfone can elaborate further, she occasionally posts
on this video. Look for her posts to write her directly. I would say the
answer to your question is therefore probably yes.
OYAHHH: It's not as good as the IPod. I also have an IPod and I can text faster on
it that I can this phone. The biggest problem for me is that when you
create a text message the message is in a vertical position. As soon as you
tap the screen to start the msg the msg area rotates to the horizontal
position. Very very bad design. When you finish the msg the msg flips back
to vertical. For typing, I would say the LG840G is 75% of IPod's speed,
LG800 is 20% of IPod's speed. Hope this helps.
Themaintrain: You said you didn't know if this phone would connect to a computer and swap
files back and forth. I saw someone dl the operating system opera mini
yesterday by connecting a mini usb to the computer. That is the same chord
that comes with my camera for transferring photos.
Niki Casselberry: I am a couponer so I am looking for a tracfone that I can use couponing
apps on like Jingit, Savingstar or Ibotta. Can you tell me if these apps
are available on this phone?
mysweetharmony: But it won't play youtube videos full screen like the Samsung S390G with
wifi. This LG 340G only plays videos as a tiny 1.5 inch postage stamp size
surrounded by a black screen. There's no way around this either. That was a
deal breaker for me. It also doesn't have voice commands. The Samsung has
voice commands so if I want to make a call I just say, "call Dave" and it
dials his number.
itshilonieyrawr: can u go on instagram?
mysweetharmony: You don't have to use the alternate keyboard to type your notes or message.
Simply click the top right button with the lines, then go to input and
change it to the full keyboard.
OYAHHH: The phone is not Android but it does run Java apps. There is a growing list
of Java apps that it will run. Do a bit of Googling to find them. Straight
out of the package it does not geotag photos. Sorry:-(
FreakyEagle13: I am stuck on tracfone services and phones and I do a lot of texting. I
also had the LG 800G and the motorola EX124G and like you said the typing
on thhem sucks. Its very nonresponsive. Would you say the texting on this
phone is the opposite and very fast? I know you said that it is responsive
but is it fast? I currently am using an ipod for texting and regularly send
up to 1000 texts per hour on a regularl basis. So yeah if you could answer
this that would be great! thank you for your time.
nashiPAGE: I know this is a really random, specific question--but is the phone's
browser able to display foreign characters like Japanese Kanji? I plan to
be able to use it as a pocket dictionary with a certain website. Would you
be able to check for me? :) Thank you~~
Chad Muskaa: 1000 Txts per HOUR??? So on any given day you send out say.... 16 THOUSAND
Ariel P.: Forget that. you just answered it in the video.
mizgwen: Just bought this model and found your review to be extremely helpful.
ansbach74: How do you shut this phone down completely? I hit the power button until
the screen goes black. Some times a statement appears asking do you want to
discontinue are something to that affect; I hit yes and the phone
completely shut time. This doesn’t happen all the time so does mean the
phone is still on?
