Deal Details

HSN has the Tracfone LG 840G bundle (phone, home & car chargers, earbuds & choice of case) with 1400 minutes, one year of service and triple minutes for life for $99.95 (Reg. $129.95). Shipping is free.
Additionally, the Tracfone LG 505C with 1450 minutes, one year of service and triple minutes for life is available for $89.95 here [hsn.com]. (Thanks chazjr) According to eibgrad, once the minutes and service are added to the 840G, a bonus 70 minutes and 60 days of service will be added, for a total of 1,470 minutes and 14 months of service. This had been out of stock for awhile at HSN. There is an ebay seller that has a bundle with 1,350 minutes, but only 90 days of service and Amazon has a 1,200 minute bundle, but it's currently out of stock. None of the HSN codes I tried worked, including the new customer ones. They call it a smartphone, but I wouldn't. Which isn't to say it's bad, in fact, from what I've read this is one of the better Tracfones available. It just doesn't have all the bells and whistles.

What network does it ride on? Is it GSM or CDMA based?
It's GSM, but I don't know if it's a crapshoot whether you get AT&T or T-Mobile. T-Mobile reception sucks where I'm at, so I'd want AT&T.

This same combo was about $58 six months ago, i know b/c I bought one. Be advised the phone is dumb as a doorjamb. Yes it has virtual buttons, but they are no better than real buttons. The best thing about this is the triple minutes.
$58 for LG 840g + 1400 minutes???
Where did you get it? That's one hell of of a deal.

Any issues transferring number from an old tracfone? I believe you need to wait to activate until you execute the transfer.

Also - does it have an email utility and browser for use with wifi?

Activate this phone within 60 days or you'll lose all of your minutes.

This is a good deal, but if you only use 25 munites a month, you can get service for $5 a month in a few places. Ckeck out the prepaid comparisons at http://www.cellguru.net

1400 minutes for $100 is a good deal though

'Triple Minutes for Life'

Just remember that ONLY applies to the ORIGINAL phone you purchase. if it conks out on you and you get a replacement you don't get the 3x minutes anymore Frown

****The double or triple minutes feature applies to the life of a single TRACFONE phone. The double or triple minutes feature is not transferable to another TRACFONE even if Your phone is damaged, lost or stolen.



huh?....I just went thru this last year and the replacement phone received was listed as a dmfl not a tmfl and I got TF to change it to a tmfl.

Now I have had a issue last time adding the minutes as it didn't double or triple the minutes.But due to the lack of support from TF as 2 people just said it showed as a tmfl phone and showed me adding 60 minutes it" must have tripled" it but they never did go any deeper to verify it tripled ...finally one guy did and added them...hence no longer using TF.

FYI. By the time you add in the mins and service time that comes w/ the phone, it's really 1470 mins (1400 mins + 20 mins + 50 bonus mins for some reason) and 14 months service (1 yr + 60 days). I picked up mine from HSN on a recent deal for $80 (there was a $20 coupon at the time).

Yes, it includes wifi, but the included apps are pretty lame, and the browser is a joke. It's really only good for retrieving email. Many apps don't use the QWERTY keyboard, but the ever so annoying T9 keyboard you find on cellular-only phones, even for things where you'd think the QWERTY keyboard made sense (e.g., entering fields on webpage). Ugg. So don't expect much in terms of wifi, it's barely serviceable.

As far as the back cover, everyone gets the black one by default (it's already installed). The color choices are for the *second* optional back cover.

Well, according to retail-me-not-dot-com, there is a 15% off coupon for new HSN customer, 1NEW15. Expires 4/16/2013. Can't vouch for it's validity though, or if there are exception, so someone will just have to try it.
