    Hi,

    Do any one of these carriers offer att 3g service. The only phones that work well at my work have 3g coverage.

    No. Tracfone/Net10 do not offer mobile broadband access. The new Tracfone LG 420G does offer mobile web using AT&T EDGE technology, that's about as advanced as you're going to get right now.

    My Tracfones have all been GPRS based for internet (which is extremely limited anyway). For what you can do on a Tracfone, that is fine -- none of it is data-intensive. Just so you know, Tracfone's internet is extremely expensive for what you get, it charges by the minute even if you are just reading a document and are not actively using the internet connection. Only AT&T pay by the kilobyte is more expensive (one WAP page could cost you up to 80 cents using that plan, on Net10 it would cost approximately 30 cents including reading time).

    I think the phone is defective. You see that a lot with LG phones from all carriers. Your work could also be serviced by a T-Mobile tower, but you should still be able to roam. 3G has nothing to do with it. I would buy or have them replace with the cheap Samsung T201G with card deal on the Net10 website and see if that corrects the problem. It is only $20 (use code 34567 for $3 off). I am happy with mine. Just make sure you play with it before transferring minutes as a few of them are dying within an hour of charging it and turning it on, displaying a numeric code and not allowing you to even shut it off (my first one did just that, the second is great so far). Playing with the ringers for an hour or so will suffice.

    If your new phone is defective (your LG seems to be, have them substitute the Samsung), call CS at 1-800-876-5753 between the hours of 8am and 5pm est, they will ship a new one out and include an envelope to send the old one back in. If you just send it back, it screws their system up and you will then have to call them to get it straightened out!
