Summary: No it is not an IPhone, but it is about as close as you can get without paying high monthly bills. I sat next to someone who has an IPhone and her screen looked a lot like this one and we were using much of the same functions. It definitely serves my purposes and the cost cannot be beat.
Summary: I upgraded from the 800G. The bluetooth for my 800G worked well with my Ford Escape, unfortunately it didn't work with my new 840G. Tried everything to to get it to work to no avail, it became obvious that there is a flaw with the Tracfone LG840G bluetooth app. Overall the 840G is a better phone than the 800G, just disappointed the bluetooth doesn't work in my vehicle. If the 840G bluetooth worked I would give it a 4+ star rating.
Summary: What can i say...great value for the buck...im not a cell phone junkie, I haven't had a cell phone for over 5 years,i just want a peace of mind when i was stranded on the turnpike at 730pm...Im a firm believer..."less is more". This is a simple way to communicate. not to mention the ease of setting up the phone...I am looking at Ting.com for switching my wifes phone over for half the money..Thx for listening/reading..
Summary: I bought this Tracfone LG840G from Amazon 4 weeks ago. I always note down the balance of my minutes when I shut it down. When I next power it up, I always noticed that a minute or two would disappear from the balance. This may not seem a lot, but would total 700 minutes per year stolen from you. At first I thought that the phone automatically used the 3G to receive my emails or turned on the built in browser.
Summary: I am still trying to figure it all out, find the screen to scroll is too touchy. I also searched for an Android so that I could use it to track my exercise and no one seems to know if I can download it.
Shop around when buying from this seller (Shopcelldeals)

Summary: Overall the phone bundle was good, but was a little disappointed when I seen that shopcelldeals also has an eBay store where they sell the same exact package plus a $10 gift card for $15 less. So yes, it's mostly my fault, but it's not right that they profile amazon shoppers and charge more. So if buying this phone package or anything from shopcelldeals, do not buy on amazon, look for there store site or eBay store, it will save you money!
