I bought two more LG 800G's just this week from this vendor because this is one of the best cell phones ever offered by TracFone. Now I have four LG 800G's -- one for myself, one for my wife, and one for each of my daughters. I also purchase a Motorola EX124G TML, but I sent it back to TracFone. In my opinion the LG 800G is a much better value.
These LG 800G's under this offer are all Software version 10d (S/W V10d) which is why they are discounted with triple minutes. What you get are new double-minute phones with a pin to convert to a triple minute for life with 1200 minutes.
TracFone is phasing into a later version LG 800G with software version 10e (S/W V10e). But you can only get the newer 10e version at Net10 - without triple minutes (in fact, not even double minutes.)
[EDIT 18 Dec 2011: All new phones now being shipped are versions S/WV10e]
Some early users of the V10d LG 800G's reported having text message issues. I never had any issues with text messages, but the real kicker is that if you do, TracFone will replace your version 10d with a newer version 10e for free - and your TML and all you minutes transfer -- You can't lose.Read more ›
I was a little nervous about the triple minutes for life actually coming through. So when I activated the phone I asked the rep if he could tell. He said yes, spent a lot of time with his supervisor, said it was only double minutes and gave me a number to call to "get the triple minutes" since it's not a TracFone promo. When I called the number they said, as I thought, that it was in the phone and if I got 1200 minutes it was triple. I still didn't want to wait to find out that is was not the case, there's only a ninety day warranty and a 7 day return, so I purchased the $10, 30 minute deal online. Sure enough I got 90 minutes.
When I tried to add the 40 bonus minutes for July from the TracFone Saving Book I only receive 10 minutes. I called so they gave me 40 minutes. I ended up with a bonus of 50.
I probably should have mentioned first that this is an incredible deal: A double minutes for life card with a year of service and 800 minutes is the same price, $119, but without the phone! If you purchased a 450 and 120 minute deal you'd have 1140 minutes with the dmfl phone and that would cost you $120 plus tax, no phone.
I already have an MP3 player but I can put the same sdhc card in the phone and have my music. I have good camera, a DSLR, but sometimes it's overkill, this has a 2mp camera and video. The touch screen makes the calculator easy to use.Read more ›
Turns out, Tracfone said that the 800G won't work in my area and they sent me a replacement--unfortunately, an LG501G--which has those pesky very tiny little buttons which I was trying to avoid. However, at least I DID get the 1200 minutes, 1-year activation and am told that I will be getting the triple minutes for life, even with the new phone (haven't tested this by buying minutes, yet).
I'd encourage potential buyers to call Tracfone and make sure the LG800g will work in your area, but then, most folks do not live as far in the boonies as we do!
The LG501g is ok but will likely end up being given to my middle-schooler, who does not mind the tiny buttons; my search for a phone continues!
This phone is, for the most part, fairly simple to use. To prevent any problems with downloads, I did upgrade the memory.
There was a problem at first: the battery wouldn't give a full charge...so I dealt w/ TF on their Facebook page and within 4 days had a new battery in my phone. The new battery is doing quite well. The phone has been on, in standby (and an occasional use on my part) for four days and the battery is still fully charged.
There were some things I didn't know how to do...again I went to the Facebook page...responses were, for the most part, immediate...including late at night and during the week-end. Frankly, they're easier to deal with on FB than on the phone.
I have done minimal texting (no one I know really does it...we prefer to speak to each other) but have not had any problems in sending or receiving. I have downloaded 2 browsers to the phone (Opera Mini and Bolt)and they have proven to be much better than the browser TF gives.Read more ›

Have been saving tons of money by buying tracfone/service... it is about $99 per year once you have the phone. Look for a bundle deal. You can get double minutes. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Lyn
