C0LL1N: When I try to watch youtube videos on my LG 840G It has the loading bar at
the top and it just says 1% and never moves, and rarely the phone just
crashes and restarts.
CovertBrony: FYI to all lg 840g and to tracfone users you have to use the static option
when using the lg 840g's wifi is connected to the wireless router and i
would not try to watch on youtube with the lg 800g
April TracFone: Hi Jkbobful, I am April from TracFone Wireless. Unfortunately, you cannot
play videos using the data service you have on the phone but you can play
videos once you connect to your WiFi. If you need further information,
email us back at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com.
Robert Kruckman: I am new to 3G. If you use it to watch youtube does it cast more than a
minute for minute. If i watched it for 3 min, it seems like it should cost
tornmask: i will, thank u. waiting for mine to arrive via fedex nxt wk & first time
i'm gonna own one only cuz its a refurbished model.
TheSlowRewind: awesome. this is great to know.
Craig White: Did you ever get youtube to work?
TheLightHouseLady: Good Info! I know very little about this type of phone. Is the Wifi free on
this phone for youtube videos?
balsacki: Bottom line.....can we or can we not play youtube videos? I get the
"Network unavailable" dialogue.
tornmask: you're a genius! thank you so much for this presentation, cheers!
linda collins: i have the lg 840 and i lov it, plays youtube and you dont have to change
any thing to do it. great phone for the price and tripple minutes for the
life i have the phone.
coler154: please tell me how you did that!!!
Stupid Epic Video!: My lg800g can't do this without eating up minutes
Lesberatti's Place: There's no way to enlarge the video to full screen?
jbasketballgirl16: I'm not sure. I use it on tracfone with the family value plan
Carla DelTreste: this isn't working for me. I followed the same exact things done in this
video and I keep getting "playback error." No videos will play
notsogreat123: When trying to play youtube videos why does my LG840G say "network
unavailable" when there is no tower signal ??? I obviously logged onto
youtube with wifi !!! Why won't it play the video ?? I cannot get cell
tower signals at home. I do have wifi and can get on the internet. I just
don't know why I can't play youtube videos over wifi ???????
billy corgan: Will this phone work with 25 dollar plan
notsogreat123: Well I could use the entire internet on wifi except for playing videos
while not activated. Now I have my phone activated and fully functional as
a phone. I have cell signal now and the youtube videos still say network
unavailable. What the heck ????
Carla DelTreste: is this a tracfone? I just got off the phone with them and they said that
you cannot stream videos on this phone...
dbzlover27: i have an 8gb card in my phone, and i STILL can't play them. WTF
Jay16900: My phone wont even load the videos, it sits at 1% and after a min the phone
restarts. Even when I'm literally standing next to the router.
Mike: Wow this is the first tracfone they made that using wifi for Internet
instead of minutes I'm impressed
Octavia Fields: mines said i have to connect to wifi?
morna45: I have a problem attaching my own videos to a cell phone message. It says
the "file is too big" -- does that mean I should change my micro sd card to
more gb's? Please help someone/ -- thanks.
jbasketballgirl16: @Robert Kruckman with 3G you are charged by the size of the data you are
downloading from the Internet. Tracfone charged me about 2 units for a 1 kb
mms so I imagine it will charge a lot more for a video. I will try this
soon and make another video
tornmask: thanks so much for this short presentation it was worth viewing. cheers!
notsogreat123: Still won't let me play youtube videos on wifi when I have no cell signal.
So if they don't charge you minutes when you play youtube videos then whey
do they require cell signal ??? jbasketbasllgirl are you sure they don't
charge minutes to play youtube ? I sure can't do it without a signal. SAYS
NETWORK NOT AVAILABLE. Internet otherwise works normally with WIFI
jbasketballgirl16: can you explain this further bc i cannot find this frame like icon
Lesberatti's Place: Yeah that makes sense thanks.
Luna Sparkle: Hey. Whenever i try 2 acess utube vids, i get 2 the connecting screen, but
then it says playback error. Everything is registered and running and using
wifi. Also,when i try 2 dl mp3 files(ex:youtube-mp3) it says file not
supported when it clearly is. Help plz
kazip55: @linda collins o
no no: i have no problems viewing youtube videos on my lg840g. the issue i have is
watching them full screen. the image i get is about 1 inch square.
Jay16900: I believe it's signal strength, nothing to do with my Wi-Fi. I assumed most
of the data was through the Wi-Fi but I have full bars at my work and you
tube works fine.
Craig White: How did you get Youtube to work?
tornmask: excellent & thank u for the demonstration, cheer!
Lesberatti's Place: Well in the video above there is so small icon under the video.
jbasketballgirl16: @notsogreat123 it doesn't let you play videos when you have no signal. Idk
jbasketballgirl16: yes. it comes with 2gb but i transfered the 4gb i bought for my 800g
Carla DelTreste: i am using it with wifi and i keep getting "playback error" after it tries
connecting for a while. I have been able to view a couple of videos earlier
today, but now those SAME videos are not working. I want to know what the
jbasketballgirl16: thank you! please check out my new tutorials channel: JaninaTutorials :) if
you have any questions, I'll try to answer them
rainforestdon: Well when I do the set up for youtube it says " Network Unavailable" It is
good right up to the point I press "Watch video". If some one knows
something , help would be cool.
April TracFone: Hello Carla DelTreste, my name is April. I'm with TracFone. Yes, the LG
840G phone is under TracFone Wireless. About streaming, this may cause high
data consumption. Once it creates a negative impact to the towers, data
service may be suspended or limited. Please refer to the Terms and
Conditions. For questions, send an email to

Jonah Warner: My phone always says NETWORK UNAVAILABLE anytime i try to use youtube even
when i have full wifi and cell signals help please
Debbie Bryda: I am having problems playing Youtube videos on my Tracfone lg 840 g. After
trying to connect to the video, a message comes up saying Playback Error.
I've connected to Wifi and even inserted a 16gb sd card. On two occasions,
Youtube videos did play after clicking on the icon with the two squares
together, but then it hasn't worked since. It's frustrating when I see
other people on Youtube playing the videos on the same type of phone. Do
you have any suggestions?
April TracFone: Hi Debbie, this is April. TracFone does not support video streaming for LG
840G. YouTube videos may play when connected to Wi-Fi, but the phone
doesn't have a flash player; thus, video streaming is unsupported for this
phone model. Email us at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com, if you have
additional questions. Thanks!
