Juda Cohen: Can I go on the web(to download ringtones from phonezoo)?
Bournefort: No, unfortunately it doesn't. Some of the newer Tracfones, like the LG840G,
Bournefort: Only certain videos with very low bit-rates. I wouldn't recommend it on
this phone though. You pay per minute for internet usage and the quality is
not going to be very good.
Bournefort: Yeah, you definitely can. Keep in mind it does cost per picture though. So
if those ladies are sending tons of pics, it's gonna cost you. Hopefully
the pics will be worth it ;)
Mike SC: Does this 530 model have voice dialing/commands?
KatiuskaWook: Can I use whatsapp on it? :)
Bryan Gregor: Can i get pics from girls with iphones?
April TracFone: Hi yakk13, this is April from TracFone. We are unable to determine the
applications that are compatible with the LG530G phone. You may download
Facebook and other applications on your phone. However, we do not guarantee
that all applications will work on your phone. If you have further
questions, please email us at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you.
lildigiman: 7 is Max volume, and I don't know of a way to disable vibrations.
ESELkoek: Obviously no.
tornmask: very helpful review thanx Bourne!
Bournefort: There are two buttons above the send button. The silver one directly above
the Send button is a button that brings you to the calender app. It is
convenient and allows for access to the calender with the click of the
button. As for the button up top above the silver calender button, this is
just a select button for whichever menu is currently on the screen.
April TracFone: Hi THANATOS112220, this is April of TracFone Wireless. The LG 530G can
support up to 16 GB Micro SD card. The music player of this phone plays
formats such as MP3, AAC, ACC+, and VMA. With the 16 GB SD card, this phone
can hold up to 1000 songs that require a 20 MB empty space. Thus, we can
assure you that the music on this phone plays great. Should you have any
question, please send us an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com.
Koletta Spencer: Any owners of the LG530G,can u tell me what the silver button above the
send button is for.Tracfone said it was for all recent calls.That's after
leaving me on hold for quite awhile.Please help.Their manual shows nothing
about the button or addresses it at all.
THANATOS112220: Ah ok, thanks for the info!
Jake Austin: Can you change the theme from white to something else?
Bournefort: Yes, if you have a micro-SD care you are able to listen to music and select
them as your ringtone/text tone as well as set pictures as a background or
Allen Maynard: Your choice would be this one or the LG 800 G?
Bournefort: Thanks! That is one old phone! It must have been well-built and durable to
have lasted that long.
THANATOS112220: @Bournefort Is it good to listen to music w/ the LG530G? I have the phone
(I bought it a few weeks ago), but I don't know if this phone is good for
music (though texting and calling on this phone is pretty good). I'm
thinking about buying a 32GB micro sd card (which I can get one for less
than $20 brand new in Amazon), but I don't know if it will be worth it.
Michael Sc: Does the phone have voice dialing??? And if so does it have it's own
button, or do u have to go to TOOLS menu like on the 840g? Thanks, Mike WI
josh71111: Yes a get mini Sd card with adapter
April TracFone: Hi Josh71111, this is April of TracFone Wireless. Unfortunately, the
phone's user manual doesn't have any instruction on how to end or stop a
music that is currently playing. However, you may try to press the center
of your navigation keys to 'PAUSE' it and then press the End key to go back
to the main screen. You may also press 'Options" and then select 'Exit.
Hope this information helps. Should there be anything else, please email us
at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you!
Bournefort: Yes, you can choose between black and white themes. The white one in the
video has the white and orange look to it whereas the black theme has a
black and blue look to it.
Bournefort: The speakers are decent quality. They can pump out some fairly loud volume.
When using headphones or ear buds, the sound quality is improved. If you
aren't looking for anything super super nice, I would say that it should be
Bournefort: #1 Go to Menu > Settings > Audio & Ringtones > Keypad Tone > Volume > And
then set it to silent. #2 Unfortunately, this phone doesn't have the spell
check feature. It seems like every other phone that I have encountered from
Tracfone does have it but the LG530G does not. #3 You can disable this or
set the time frame to the phone shutting off due to inactivity by: Menu >
Settings > Phone Settings > Auto Key Lock > Off Hope this helps!!
heyther3456: Yes. I used email only once or twice and don't remember the exact cost but
it wasn't especially cheap, like web access is not cheap either. I quit
using email because (1) the phone had to be master-cleared not long after I
used the email and (2) don't want the chance of having my email account
hijacked if I lose the phone. I didn't buy it expecting email access so I'm
ok with that. Texts cost 0.30 min.
missnicholson: Hi, Can you tell me how the calculator works on this one. I have the LG500g
and I love it but the calculator is controlled by the round buttons above
the keyboard and its just awful. Is this calculator at least controlled by
the qwerty keyboard keys?
hoftroyanti: Please tell me how to take the Tracfone LG53G off vibtrator. Also is there
any way to set the volume above 7? Thank you.
Koletta Spencer: U didn't finish showing how easy it is to send a message.R there any
problems with the phone?I have the Samsung s390.Hate it.Too easy to get
ToxxicTess5683: Could you do a Samsung S390G? I like your reviews! :)
Koletta Spencer: Can I put my own sounds on the phone from my card?I like "You've Got
Mail","Hey,hey,pick up the phone,u've got a call".
nick golden: The guy below me. Uhm. When I had a 10$ tracfone it told me who it was
before spending the minutes. It wasn't even a flip phone it was a moto
yakk13: what kind of apps can you get? can you go on facebook or get gps?
lildigiman: When you receive a text, does the phone tell you who the text is from
before you waste a third of a minute on it?
Bournefort: Yes, the calculator is controlled by the actual keyboard. The arithmetic
operations (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division) are
controlled by the center circle key though. So if you wanted to do 17 + 3,
you would type 1, 7, (up), 3. You can also perform more advanced stuff like
trig functions,sqrt, exponents etc...
josh71111: Oh i figured it out it was just the red end button.
ProperThoughtSk8er: can you get instagram on this?
trinhqthuan: Can the phone connected to a computer to transfer photos? I try to send by
email. I did not go either. Thanks Thuan
dekman: Hi Hoping you can help me out. #1. How do you silence the beeps while
texting WITHOUT having to put the phone in vibrate mode? #2. I owned a
tracphone 420 and it had spell check. Does the 530? If so.. how do I
activate it? and #3. Whats up with the annoying need to deal with hitting
"unlock" and "yes" every time the phone is turned on and/or not touched for
a few minutes. I am so looking forward to these answers. Thank you in
Steve Kimball: Good demo! I think I'll get one of these to replace my ancient Tracfone
Motorola v120c, that I've had for almost 9 years.
UprTupr: Does the airtime get deducted per email?
April TracFone: Hi Koletta! This is Sara from Straight Talk Wireless. Yes, you are able to
change the notification ringtone of the phone. Should you have further
questions, feel free to send us an email at
kazip55: Can u watch youtube.
josh71111: dumb question, when playing music how do i stop it, i can only pause it and
it kills the battery even when the screen goes black.
Bournefort: Unfortunately No.It only says that you have received a message and the
time/date it was received. You need to waste the 1/3 minute in order to see
the contact name and message.
