wingsonmyback1: Just got this phone, was going to download a picture for my screen but they
wanted to use 16 of my minutes and charge me $1.99. So I am wondering if
they over charge the minutes when talking or texting ? remember when we
used to buy phone cards at gas stations. you would buy 200 minuets and they
would take 4 minutes for every one you bought
Catzilla: Tracfone came out with several Android phones, so I made the switch. The
difference is amazing. Also, it's hard to find signed Java apps that work
with this phone anymore (Opera was one of them). With the Android phones,
you can download any compatible app from the Google Play store.
Link, The Hylian: Is there a way to get Skype on this?
MyWorldTrumanShow: I can't download anything cause my phone keeps saying "page to big" and
turns off my browser, how do you deal with that?
FreshmenBolts: can i download a pdf reader? is there an app like that for tracfone?
patricia mackura: Thank you very much! I can use the internet without using minutes!
InGratiaDei: That was helpful. Thanks much.
Carmen White: What website or sites do you go to, to get java with jar extensions files?
Da- Digger: I found the right version at--- opera.com/mobile/download/versions/ I
installed it on the phone just to try it out. I'm thinking it might be OK
if you use opera on a computer or tablet. Just to have on the phone doesn't
make any usable sense to me. The native browser is just as good. I couldn't
tell any different in the speed & the keyboard is way to small. I watched
the videos on opera website, boy are they full of it. I must be missing
Marilyn Miller: Do I need java to run the square register app? Can't seem to download the
square register app anyway. I need help please - thank you.
Boo BooLuv: you just turn your wifi on and it usually automatically uses the free wifi,
instead of your minutes.
jbasketballgirl16: watch my video to see how to download free apps directly from the internet
on your phone!
mathew gibson: where do i get java
Lynne Zimmermann: I downloaded opera mini 7.1 to my computer, attached a cable and
transferred it to my 840G, according to the computer, the file is there on
my phone, but doesn't show up on my phone. I haven't been able to install
it. Does it have anything to do with being a tracfone?
mlford fowler: you could have gave us the site so we could down load/install java apps.
durrrrrrr any one could have put that video up. don't even need a data
cable to do that, just take your SD card out of phone put it in a SD
adapter and stick it into your pc.
Austin Shutt: To anyone who says "where can i get java?" Its burned in (preloaded)
matt richards: can u make a vid shg all the java apps
Yankee Poodle: I think I am missing the icon Ringtones & Graphics. I purchased a ringtone
and cant do anything with it. I only see the file in Audio. I went to
Tracfone and found out there was such an Icon. How do I get it?
Val Clear: Mini Opera Browser is available from Opera, and also PicoSMS (from picosms)
for free messaging with WIFI. Use either a data cable or remove the memory
card and add the apps to the "other files" folder & re-install card and
click them to install. Then go to apps and click app to start. The java
keyboard needs removal for playing games, and there are plenty of videos on
how to do that.
tornmask: has tracfone upgraded this particular java apps i on it's lg840g without
downloading it from the computer's internet yet? reason why i ask cause
there are some handheld phones that already comes with opera mini built in
the systems application. just has to open it to download the application.
tom lan: Can you send picture messages when this phone is roaming?
Heathishness: Disregard my earlier comment. If you search google there is a way to remove
the keypad by altering the jad file of the application you want to use.
It's still an annoying extra step. Some phones ask you if you want to
disable the keypad. But, it can be done. I tried it, and it worked. (Tried
it on Opera Mini 7.1)
Heathishness: It's too bad you can't get rid of that keypad when using the Java apps. It
pretty much makes them useless. The remaining screen space is just too
small. I wouldn't recommend this phone for anyone interested in actually
using the Java application features.
P Sear: Copy the audio to your phone, then go to icons and scroll left to page 2
icons and click "SOUND SETTINGS" icon and point it to the song/
Globetrotter5km: Thank you! Downloaded the ap @ softmedia :-)
andrew serpente: can u get instagram??
P Sear: You have to install apps to the SD memory card using the data cable or
bluetooth; or you can remove the SD card and plug it into your computer.
Then restart the phone and go to the installed app file folder and click
the app and it will install. Then go to apps and click to start.

gloria iaccarino: where is java app located on my computer?
d3rocks4u: I think you can you can. just go to the menu where you delete the app and
it should have the option to get rid of tht abut i'm not sure
