  Sorry, I know of no way, other than calling Tracfone to see if they can tell.

  You made an excellent phone choice, probably never to be regretted.
You can get familiar with the phone before activating it (use WiFi)
Make sure you know how to control apps running in the background that would use up your paid for data.

Thats what I get, 1/2 and 1/2
If needed Tracfone will send the other when you try to activate, I had one buyer of 5 clearly described as having the P5s for
Tmobile then cried he wanted compensation for having to wait for P4rs and do the reprogramming, some ding bat at Tracfone told him the P5s had all expired, and sure enuf the replacements were P4 winch is what he needed for his location.

Amazon has the Tracfone LG 305C for $14.99

crippledgiant said:   Amazon has the Tracfone LG 305C for $14.99
  Please be aware that by comparison the 305C is a slightly stripped down version of the 306G.
Tracfone continues their practice of making the CDMA models less attractive than the GSM versions.
The Smartphone are the first exception to this practice.

Many could not get Wi-Fi to connect on the 305C, and there seems to be no File Manager for putting apps on the phone using  a USB cable. Quite a few things were changed in the menus from the 840G/306G. Someone advised it had a 911 soft button on the screen that was active when the screen lock was visible. Easy to accidentally "pocket dial" accidentally (not so on the 306).  Another said using the regular screen lock does not display the 911 button only when using the Pin lock or Pattern lock feature.

It was $14.99 shipped with prime. Bought one for my wife and had no trouble with Wi-Fi. I'm in MN and Amazon started charging sales tax this month but not on items bought from their sellers like SCD. Last week, we drove across the state and watched the coverage for my lg840g ATT and her LG305C VERIZON. The Verizon coverage was much better, so I'm doing the small upgrade from LG840G to LG305C as a placeholder until I go Tracfone android. I think it will be easier to transfer from Verizon phone to Android Verizon.

Tracfone shows the LG as a quad core, is this a mistake?

NotYourMomma said:   Tracfone shows the LG as a quad core, is this a mistake?
Typical Tracfone mistakes.  The LG 41C is dual core.  This can be verified by looking at the Straight Talk version`s box at WalMart.

Look at the listing for the Alcatel (click "details"), in addition to Alcatel it also calls it the LG Ultimate 2™ Android™:

    Alcatel onetouch® ICON™ Pop Android™    Price: $149.99   
         Single Rate

  • Call nationally, internationally or roam at local call rates
  • LG Ultimate 2™ Android™:
  • Includes Triple Minutes for Life FREE! (3x Talk Time, 3x Texts & 3x Data)This means that every paid Airtime Minute you add to this phone will be tripled. For example, add a 60 minute Airtime Card and get 180 Minutes Talk Time + 180 Texts + 180 MB Data.***


EDIT:  it's a Snapdragon 200 dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM.
First report is that there's a generous amount of app space available - 5GB - so total must be 8GB.
