    Having troubles with E-mail too

    Here's what happens when I try to set up the pop server....
    I access the -email app
    Get to a "Sign in" screen
    Enter e-mail address - mmmmmmm
    enter password - nnnnsss222
    enter optional user name - tom
    save
    get to "Mailbox Settings" screen
    Mailbox type = POP3
    Enter incoming server = pop.roadrunner.com
    Enter outgoing server = smtp.roadrunner.com
    click SAVE - nothing happens????

    Any hints here? This phone is not yet activated...

    I also just tries to go direct to my e-mail ISP site and log in
    entered my user name and PW and got an error that says "Bad Gateway"...wtf?

    I get the same thing. I think I am going to dump all my tracfones and go with smartphones on Airvoice (at&t mvno). Tracfone is so frustrating after using smart phones.

    Do the math for comparrison with airvoice.
    $10 per month (discounted to $9.70)
    voice minutes are 4 cents
    text messages are 2 cents
    mms is 10 cents
    data available at 33 cents per MB

    If you use all your funds you can add a different $10 card which just adds funds to your account without changing your aniversary date. All funds roll over monthly with uninterupted service.

    number porting is free

    $116.40 a year =
    3000 minutes or 6000 texts or 1200 mms

    using an iPhone you install the "google voice app" and get the "sms gv extension". This will give you free incoming and outgoing texts while on wifi and free incoming texts when on cellular data. And of course you can use the google voice app for free calls in and out when on wifi.

    What is the best yearly deal for Tracfone with TMFL?

    400min card w/ bonus codes (normally 200 minutes) gives 1400min for $100 ($0.0714/min)
    1000min card, 3000min for $160 ($0.0533/min) , or 15min card giving 4500min for $200 ($0.0444/min)

    Data (web, MMS) is the real killer, at 15 minutes/MB (using 1000KB or 15.36 min/MB using 1024KB)
    Even with the cheapest minutes, that's $0.67/MB.


    Of course, with HSN bundles you can get the phone and accessories free, unlike Airvoice where a good phone will cost a few hundred (nice that it is an option though)

    So the closest anual rate gives you 7 cents a minute and the closest per minute rate costs $200.

    I have had many free tracphones myself. And now I have the $29 LG840G which is just as big a peice of **** as the lg800 I had hoped to replace. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. So free gives you just that, nothing worth a damn.

    You can get many android phones and even 8gb iphone 3gs for under $100.

    All 3 of those cards include 1yr of service.
    So the closest as far as minutes, would be the 1000min card for $160 and 5.3 cents/minute.
    And each minute is 3.3 SMS messages, so that card is good for 10,000 texts.

    As I said, data is the killer.

    I'm quite pleased with my S390G. I liked the LG500G a lot too, but wanted wi-fi, occasional 3G, and the better camera. Other improvements as well.

    Where? Best I've seen the 3GS for is $150 for a used one. And decent android phones are at least that much (unless you get low RAM, slow CPU phones like my $100 tablets. OK for the kids or basic web browsing, but sucks for most games)

    Probably Craig's list but I don't do it. eBay for sure

    I didn't say you could get the best android phone for under $100. You can get many android phones even running only 2.2 that out perform Tracfone handsets.

    For the amount I use it, TF is the best deal over all. I mainly use txt and voice, it would be nice to use the web when connected to wifi. At least that part works (not as well as a smart phone but it works)
    So I guess I'll try setting up the E-mail after I activate and see what happens then. That seems to be the only thing I have not tried yet! Have to wait 'till Christmas as this is supposed to be a gift.

    I gues my point on the Androids was that it would frustrate as much as, if not more than, the TF.
    With the TFs you know it's not Android. With the older Androids, you'd more likely be frustrated by the performance. While my 8 yr old is OK with the cheap tablet performance, the 18yr old is often frustrated by it. The slow CPU and low RAM affect his desired usage a lot.


    Sort of like a 4 cylinder Mustang. Looks like a sporty car but abysmal performance.
    With a Toyota or Honda you would have different expectations.

    I guess it depends on how you intend to use it. I have an Android tablet with 4.0 that at times is frustrating, but my LG Thrive with 2.2 performs perfectly for what it is (a phone).

    Update - after I activated the phone I could get this to work just fine! I like being able to get my e-mails when I'm away from home. The Blue Tooth also works fine with my new car which has voice activation for calls.

    Search gmail help for the settings.

    Look for POP3, IMAP, and SMTP.

    kat12205 - I also use gmail. You also may have to go into the settings of gmail and make a change in order for gmail to communicate with your phone. Here is a link to help explain in case you need it:

    Mail will work with Wifi or Cell on the LG840G. I set all (3) of my accounts up for IMAP, and
    they work fine. When I set up the account for Yahoo, it defaulted to a Pop 3 account. I could not
    receive mail that way so I changed it to IMAP....it works good.Name:  yahoo mail settings.JPG
