If you are wanting a REAL smartphone phone to connect to the internet, surf the web, check e-mails etc. this phone is not for you. If you are wanting a phone that is WAY better than the flip phone you previously had through Tracfone (plus triple minutes for life!) than it is well worth the $45.00. I've been a tracfone guy for 10 years. I have a land line, I have a computer at work & home and a laptop I can travel with. I don't talk on the phone or text that much (200 minutes a month if I'm lucky). I just couldn't justify a REAL smart phone like an Iphone or droid and a $50+ a month bill when i'm paying less than $15 now. I mainly got this phone because frankly I was embarrased to be seen talking on my flip phone and texting was a joke without a keyboard. I HAVE connected to the internet but you have to jump through so many hoops it really isn't worth it and that's with the Wi Fi. I wouldn't even waste my minutes trying to get on the internet with 3G. I loaded my Mp3's on it, can take pictures and video and it LOOKS like everybody elses smartphone. It doesn't have some features that I would have liked like voice activated dialing and some other things. The real thing I don't like is the fact that when a call comes in it becomes "unlocked", you don't have to finger slide it to unlock it like my wife's smartphone so it is easy to accidently either answer it without wanting to or reject call just by reaching into your pocket to grab it. I could have switched to Virgin and paid $35.00 a month and $400 for an Iphone but for my line of work where I am in the office most of the time and next to my computer it really doesn't make sense at this time, maybe someday, but for now I'm happy with my $45.00 aquisition.

I was able to get this phone for $19.99 on a Thursday before Black Friday special. WOW!! I have owned three previous Tracfones. I started with the candy-bar Nokia 2600 ($30 @ Office Depot) which got dunked in a lake. I moved to a candy-bar Motorola W175g ($6 @ Walmart) which fell in a toilet. Then I had a LG-420g flip-phone ($15 @ Walmart). All of these phones have served the purpose well - inexpensive, low call volume, pay-as-you-go, mobile communication. My wife and I both had double minutes for the life of our phones and we buy the 400 minutes/1 year plans (=800 minutes/1 year with doubling) to minimize per minute costs. I don't need games, apps, cameras, music player, multimedia capabilities etc. And we have reached the point where our land-line is just about to get the boot because of how pleased we are with Tracfones. Don't get me wrong, Android phones and iphones are really outstandingly cool. But I refuse to pay those rates because I don't have a compelling reason to have a smartphone. I am not addicted to texting friends, facebook, electronic books, multimedia consumption, etc. However, I discovered the ability to check my email on the LG-420g was quite convenient. I am a person who can get along without a smartphone but I really appreciate good user interface and user friendliness. So, when I saw that I could get triple minutes on the LG-840g I did some digging. Improved touchscreen interface, Wi-Fi, 3G, the possibility of replacing the 2GB microSD card with a larger one if you do want to store music and photos, AND triple minutes - SOLD.

Now that I have the phone I really like it. Let's remember it is a Tracfone. It is not a smartphone.

I have had several LG Tracfones in the past and they were always quality products. The LG840g is no exception. I got mine to replace a LG500g that I had for over a year. After one week, here are my impressions.

The phone itself is about the size of an Ipod Touch, and similar in shape and appearance. It looks expensive. The "wake" button is recessed which makes it difficult to hit accidentally, and the volume buttons are on the side where they would be on an Ipod. The buttons on the front are capacitive touch, like the screen.

It is not a smart phone and runs a java based proprietary operating system which allows the installation of .jar apps.

Battery life depends on how you use it. I left the WiFi running and the battery drained to one bar in 24 hours. It didn't shut down, but it was definitely low. Only using the WiFi occasionally, the battery is still on full bars after 3 days. I haven't run the phone all the way down yet, but the advertised standby is over 10 days.

The interface is easy to use, and the touch-screen is capacitive, which makes it easy to use. It feels a lot like an Ipod/Iphone. I don't like the pale blue backgrounds for the menus, but there's no way I know of to change it.

It wouldn't connect to my home WiFi, a Belkin router, unless I set a static IP address. If you're having problems connecting, choose "Edit Network" and under IP/DNS Setting, choose "Static". You will then have to configure the settings specific to your router using your keen sense of Google Fu.

One problem is the keyboard. You only get a QWERTY in certain situations, such as entering web addresses, texting, etc. If you go to a website that has input text boxes, such as webmail, you'll be sorely disappointed.
