jose coreas: how did you get the minutes off the widget contacts
jose coreas: can you get free apps such as text plus
MobileTechnology Reviews: Nope. You can only access YouTube via the stock browser
Katy D: I may get this phone- can you access youtube through UCbrowser?
FlatusOhlfahrt: got it to work - thanks
MobileTechnology Reviews: Yes, there is a full landscape QWERTY keyboard for sending texts.
MobileTechnology Reviews: Check in the description. "How to remove virtual Java keypad"
hulkame: Does anyone know how to log out of facebook on lg840g
FlatusOhlfahrt: when I access opera mini I get the navigation screen at the bottom... I noticed your's doesn't - how do you get rid of that? (nav screen like w/ google maps)
kanji4flame: Is there a full keyboard when you sent out a text msg?
MobileTechnology Reviews: jayh57 is incorrect. When the phone is on WiFi, the 3g is basically turned off. If you do not have WiFi available, then the phone will use 3g (minutes)
MobileTechnology Reviews: Mine doesn't do that. I think you had a defective phone.
John Doe: The tracfone LG 840 g roams and uses fractions of minutes every time it loses and regains the signal even when not in use. FYI. I made the mistake of buying one. mine wasted 100 minutes before I figured out why. had to switch back to my old phone
jayh57: It uses minutes as the 3g can't be turned off
bcinnash: my tracfone LG 840G roams in fringe areas and every time it loses and regains the signal it uses minutes even WHEN NOT IN USE! and theres no way to turn off roaming. I found out the hard way and had to switch back to my double minute phone.
Thomas Weaver: The font problem with larger websites on the Opera Browser can be fixed by putting it in "Single Column View" under Settings.
MobileTechnology Reviews: Exactly! Opera should fix that!
arnold harner Sr: The only bad thing about opera mini it wont play anything on youtube
MobileTechnology Reviews: The link to download UC Browser 8.5 is in the description.
Once you download it, check out my video on how to remove it's virtual Java keypad (the link is also in the description)
MobileTechnology Reviews: If you are connected to WiFi then it should not deduct minutes
MobileTechnology Reviews: The browser only takes minutes when you're on 3G. When you're connected to WiFi no minutes are deducted
okwodjo darquah: i got the same phone and a wireless but it deducted minutes
Lester Prinsen: where do I download UC browser?
jarvis fields: Does the browser take minutes like the lg 800g
HENRYHENRY18: HOW DO YOU DOWNLOAD UC BROWSER
MobileTechnology Reviews: This phone has WiFi, which does not deduct your minutes
johncena2336: how do you get internet without having to waste your minutes every minute
MobileTechnology Reviews: You cannot input text into the Google search bar using the qwerty keyboard. There is only an abc and T9 keypad.
The method you described works with other parts of the OS (like the URL Input Box), but not with the Google search bar. Trust me, I know due to first-hand experience.
mysweetharmony: Yes, you can use the full qwerty keyboard to enter text in the google search box. See that icon in the upper right corner with the horizontal lines through it? Click it, then click on input options to change to qwerty keyboard. You can learn more things like this by downloading the manual on the product LG website.
TheGeo913: Thanks for this video! Very well done!!! Yeah I'm using the stock web browser plus Opera Mini... It looks like UC Browser is good as well! :) Thanks for the video!
MrTjjmoto: So I have recently bought a Tracfone LG840g just like yours. I have been having issues with getting good social networking apps for like Twitter, Facebook etc. Do you have any suggestions on good websites that allow you to download apps? (Social network apps specifically)
MobileTechnology Reviews: Tom lan: My phone has never "roamed". Plus, I send very few picture messages. Therefore, I am unable to answer your question. Sorry I couldn't help
tom lan: Can you send picture messages when this phone is roaming?
MobileTechnology Reviews: Check out my video on how to remove the virtual java keypad (if you remove it, UC Browser will be in full screen)
Ace123097: I think you have to change the .Jad file on a computer because you can't get full screen without editing it
Chuck Amodi: Where did u go to get uc browser in fulscreen
MobileTechnology Reviews: Thanks Joe, I'll check and see if that is the problem
joe mama: i have found that, when checking email, just exiting out does NOT shutoff the email access; you have to go back into your email account and PUSH OFF. this is not obvious. i was losing and average 2-3 mins per day for this very reason. tracfone was clueless as to what might be causing this. now i totally delete my email account after checking it so that i can't possibly lose minutes. it's a minor pain to reinsert my email address and passwords, but it's worth saving my minutes!
nealart: Thanks - this was very helpful - I would not have known that you could download Opera Mini for this tracfone. Still don't know how to get rid of the big scroll arrows on the right of the landscape though. They don't show on your phone. Might be I got a new version of the browser.
MobileTechnology Reviews: Hello April from Tracfone, MobileTechnology Reviews here, and as you know I own the LG 840g. To activate this phone, I transferred my number and minutes from my old phone via your website. Everything went well. But soon my minutes started to randomly be deducted. For example, last night i had exactly 100 minutes and then i turned the phone off. I turned it back on the next morning to find that I had 95 minutes. I would appreciate it if you replied with an answer to my problem ASAP. Thank you
MobileTechnology Reviews: April, I think Diego was talking about the virtual Java keypad which appears when in java applications. And there is a way to change it
April TracFone: Hi Diego, this is April of TracFone Wireless. The LG 840G is a touchscreen type of phone. It doesn't have a physical keypad; however, it has a virtual QWERTY keyboard in landscape view. Hence, there is no option to change it. Should there be anything else, please send us an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you!
MobileTechnology Reviews: I think 3.2 inches is an ample screen size. It's bigger than the LG 800g's 2.8 inch screen
linhduhtranltlt: Screen is small
MobileTechnology Reviews: Check out Part 1 of my LG 840g Review. It tells you how to remove the keypad in the description
