Tracfone LG840G Review




What do you think about this video?

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 that? 

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.

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 great video

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 TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thanks.

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 demonstrations.

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 txts???

Ariel P.: Forget that. you just answered it in the video.

mizgwen: Just bought this model and found your review to be extremely helpful. Thanks.

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?
