This is a GSM feature phone and Tracfones BEST offering.
Link to tutorials and 186 page Users Guide:
http://tracfone.deviceanywhere.com/tracfone/home.seam?custId...

HSN usually provides a SIM for AT&T as the service provider.

Will this be on the web site? Will it be advertised on their TV network? At what time?

usually today specials go on all day in increments

Prefer an actual keyboard.

Will it also be on their website?

I just posted the link. I just got home from the movies (skyfall was great!) and saw the page on their site. Different color choices available for the phone to.

Also was priced $99.99 recently, may be on special again.

NOTE: Neither of these Tracfones are actual Smartphones, they are Feature phones.

Hope it goes back on sale soon.
Of course, what I really want is an Android I can run under T-Mobiles 4G $30/mo plan...

Deal now active HERE

Dont forget FW-CB

Feature Phone?
Explain please?
No access to Android market or Google Play?
What?...thanks

OK, question, why is $99 a good deal when it is priced retail for $59.88 elsewhere?
link

Ok so I figured it up, I have 1800 min on current phone 1800+1400= 3200 mins, one year included. Saving me $100 that I will spend on current phone 4(every 3 months) x $25(90 min card). Fair deal. so I will pay the same, but get upgraded phone with wifi pretty much free.

now I need a cheap 32 gb microSD

The phone comes with 1400 minutes and one year of service. 400 minutes and one year of service is $100 at any location. If you were to buy the phone and 400 minutes with a year of service you are going to spend at least $160. They are also providing a couple other accessories.

Do these HSN deals usually make it to the end of time? Or do they sell out first. I've never shopped HSN.

Can't make up my mind. I'm used to my old flip phone that I stick in my pocket and go. No worry about damage to the screen. But it's time to add more time in December and this is a great deal.

Does anyone have a screen shot of the virtual keyboard and know if the font is readable without resorting to cheaters -reading glasses?

The price is only good for today. HSN has a great return policy though so if you do not like it you can send it back. Once you start with HSN, you will be hooked!

How much it costs to text under such a plan?

One third of a unit per text under 160 characters

monseemian said:   How much it costs to text under such a plan?

that's another question, since you have access to browser, and can send texts with google voice, you could have free texting in wifi zone?

I scored 2, thanks OP.

This is not a smart phone with the android OS. You cannot use android apps on this phone.

This is just a plain old dumb phone with wifi. so you can use wifi instead of cellular minutes to access WAP. Net10 has some low end android phones but you must use the $50 a month plan on them. If Tracfone ever has an android phone with wifi on their standard per minute plans many many people would jump on board.

what does android have to do with accessing google voice in the browser?

Is it not possible to view a reg google webpage?

have you accessed google voice on a WAP browser? never hear anyone say. Not all web sites are accessable on WAP. I get a communication error when trying to connect to most sites.

jimates said:   have you accessed google voice on a WAP browser? never hear anyone say. Not all web sites are accessable on WAP. I get a communication error when trying to connect to most sites.

why would it need to be WAP?

I've never owned a smartphone or a feature phone, so I'm wondering.

will try this

Perhaps it works. Personally I haven't found anything pleasant about browsing on a feature phone, therefor I don't even try to anymore. I have the LG800 but it is way too slow for me.

We have smartphones on AirVoice for 4 cents a minute for voice and 2 cents for texts.

Page Plus is so much better since you can use any verizon 3g smart phone. Tracfone = lamephone.

Still available. I used coupon code 121363 and saved $20. $79.95...

DriversFound said:   Still available. I used coupon code 121363 and saved $20. $79.95... Thanks for the coupon code. It worked just fine a few minutes ago. Makes this deal irresistible for the 1400 minutes and one year service. Not too sure about the phone. I am not much of a mobile phone user (which is why I use Tracfone) and still haven't found a Tracfone I like as much as the old reliable Motorola 376G.

Does anyone know if you can move all of your contacts from an existing LG VN530 non smartphone to this LG840G like the verizon techs do in the store?

Back up to $119 now.
Please post a new thread if this comes up again! Thanks.

Tracfone only for me for about ten years now.

Are you a big texting person? This is my only concern that we will eat up the minutes texting. How about transferring contacts from an existing verizon phone to a tracfone. Is there a way to do itlike verizon does in the stores?

alanrnmahler said:   Are you a big texting person? This is my only concern that we will eat up the minutes texting.

SMS texting is .3 minute/text.

MMS texting is 1 min/text.

Is there a Activation fee, and if so how much ?

richps1961 said:   Is there a Activation fee, and if so how much ?No activation fee.

A four gig micro sd card is the max that you can use in the LG840G phone.

machineheadorama said:   A four gig micro sd card is the max that you can use in the LG840G phone.Is this from first hand experience, or just what the specs for the phone say? Good luck finding a 4 gig card.

Kmart has the LG840 for $29.99 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

THIS website states 32gb.

This is a great deal. LOVE the phone. By far the best "feature phone" I've ever used. Capacative touch screen is far better than what LG used to use on these cheap phones. Easy to text. Very good battery life. No problem activating new phone and transferring old phone number, service days and minutes. Was a little hassle getting the 1400 minutes. It required a phone call... but was handled quickly.
