    lg840g tracfone

    I have the lg800 phone and it works great in my home.I can make calls and text. I just bought the new 840g and can not preform either of these tasks.I can use the phone at work or just about anywhere else.I love the phone but this is a deal breaker if I can't use it at home.I bought one for my wife and hers is the same.Doesn't make sense. Anyone have a answer for this? Thank you in advance!

    The most likely reason why you can't use your 840g at home where you could with your 800g phone, is that the 840g uses GSM. For me, this is also a deal breaker as I would be changed to the AT&T network, where I know I do not get service at my house. My current pre-paid phone uses the Verizon network and I get reception at my house just fine. Too bad, I really wanted to upgrade to the 840g too.

    Correct me if I`m wrong but (BOTH) the LG 800G and LG 840G are GSM Phones! Might be one had a T-Mobile SIM Card and the other had an ATT SIM Card but they are both GSM Phones. Only TracFone`s that end with a "C" are CDMA Verizon Phones.

    I also just upgraded from lg800g to lg840g. The service did change to ATT for the upgrade and I believe it is because of the 3g and wifi on the lg840g.
