The insufficient memory issue has been discussed extensively, and is not just on the LG900G. TF/Net10/ST phones have a limit of 300k web page size, just like 330k limit on MMS, 300k limit on ring tones, you get the idea.
To get around the web page limit you will need another browser. Opera mini or Bolt lite. You will want the signed version, or you will get more pop ups. Getting the signed version is not that easy because of the 300k limit. All this you will read over and over again here on HoFo.
Normally you use the very phone you plan to install opera mini to access the web site http://m.opera.com for download. You would look for the link that says something about other download options. Then look for something to the effect code signing certificate. Then there are a number of 'certificates' to try, one of them should work. Either way, it needs to see that phone before it hands you a signed version, or you'll not see any of this.
Again, I don't have a web capable Tracfone, so I can't try it. If one does try accessing m.opera.com with the built in browser, hopefully, the browser will allow you to download files, and you don't hit a mobile page that goes over 300k. Mobile pages are designed to be small so.....maybe....There is a lot to cover to get this done, wish I had the time.
Alternatively, you can download opera mini via a PC, but the web site will never reveal a signed version to you, because your PC is not a phone.
You can still download Opera mini for java mobiles but it will not be signed. You can transfer the unsigned version to the phone and and install it. But up on web access it will prompt like mad for permission to connect to the Internet first. It's a java thing, and a signed version satisfies the permissions needed and will stop that prompt from appearing.
What one could do is, go into your PC's web browser and change the user again ID to something that looks like a mobile phone. Then hunt for the signed version (Opera does not make it easy to find), down load on PC with altered ID, then transfer to phone and install. Dunno what all this means? Seek a computer geek They will probably be glad to help.
For an altered user agent ID, you could use:
LG-LG420G [TFxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxyyyyyyy1nnnnnnnnnn] Obigo/WAP2.0 Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuration/CLDC-1.1
(x's, y's, 1n's is a phones serial number and telephone number, just make something up, or better yet, omit.)
Yep, getting a new browser is not easy either way you go. Lotta people ask constantly how, and no precise answers posted every where. At least now you know what you are up against.
Some time ago, I thought about making a tutorial on how to do this in 3 ways, but, don't have the time, and don't have an activated TF/Net10/ST phone that is web capable to use as a guide on my would be tutorial. I've lost interest in discovering things for things America Movil for now, but who knows in the future
What I thought would be great is if, Opera or Bolt would make a direct URL to the signed version, no web page, etc. so that a new browser could be easily downloaded using the crippled bolt in browser, the way signed versions were meant to be handled.
And on the question of the annoying available minutes message and the removal of- Unfortunately no. I did not like it either, but it did make we want to hurry up and get off the net with the thing as the 'data units' go by fast. You'll see
Dig around on the main thread here when you have time. You might find some other really good info for the 900. Good luck!
