I would think so, as this phone isn't a smart phone. My mother uses this phone on her 200 minute a month, $17 plan. To insure that she didn't inadvertently burn minutes online, I set her data on Wi-Fi only. Hope this answers your question.
I do not believe so, and am no longer using this phone, though I prefer it to the one I now have. If you "google" LG 840G user manual, you may be able to research this question. Sorry I could not offer more help. By the way, the ONLY reason I gave up the LG 840G was because it uses the AT&T network, and I found that Verizon works better in my area. My best guess for the answer to your question would be: probably not. Good Luck.
