StinkyCheese9999: Re: your comment about it going to sleep, you can either turn auto-sleep
off or set a longer time interval as well as setting it not to need
unlocked to wake up IF I recall correctly. The little beep every 30 seconds
is a call timer, you can turn it off in the settings. Lastly, shopcelldeals
now sells this model for $20 off & on thru amazon & ebay, but if you're
willing to spend $40-ish, the newer LG 840G is a better phone & 3G so when
2G stops working around the end of 2016 the phone won't
mrd john: no really. the lg 800 has no equals. at and t sucks and so does verizon, t
mobile, sprint, . magic jack rules however.
Destiny Berg: you can fix it to where it wont do the auto lock
gleefanyep: I think maybe it is possible. I believe there are a couple of preset home
screens. To tell you the truth it has been a long time since I've used the
phone, so I don't remember! I know there are two graphics options, the
cartoon one and a different more boxy one, but I don't recall about the
homepage pictures. Anyone else know the answer?
fil went: I was going to get this phone but when i got it the screen was way to small
so i replaced it with the Motorola EX124G very great phone.
YoshiFanGirl387: My friend has this phone & I was thinking about getting it, but when I
tried texting on it, it was really difficult & I hated it
StinkyCheese9999: Yes of course you can, that's a feature on all phones fancier than just a
mechanical number pad these days.
carlos morales: oh my phone is lg 800
KawaiiVI Tina: Yes you can :)
Screamo emo: the reason y ur having a hard time texting with the touch screen is cuz ur
new at it thtz y it will take sum time
Damien Hartley: tbh this phone is a ripp off because it has a pirited verson of brewmp its
os wich is only suppost to work on sprint i know because i worked there and
we have 3gcdma lock out chips for phones that run brew lick the lg rumor
reflex that install brew off our privite server after validating its
productkey but our early beta test hardwere didnt have that
Lesberatti's Place: You do know mthat you can set the time for the phone to lock, don't you?
April TracFone: Hi Jason, this is April from TracFone Wireless, and I will be addressing
your query. Unfortunately, our LG 800G is not a WiFi capable phone. If you
have further inquiries, please send us an email at
TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you.
StinkyCheese9999: Yes they decided on some preset defaults that were used on several
different models. All you have to do is upload a pic & right click it on
the phone to set as the background, though what I do ahead of time is
resize it to the phone's resolution so I know how it will look. Sometimes
an image looks better if you blur it slightly THEN downsize it, more detail
is preserved by blurring first which is a bit counter intuitive till you
think about how fine details might be preserved in the process.
Jacob Jones: The beep means that you have minute minder on, so you don't use up too many
minutes while talking on the phone. To turn it off, go to
settings>call>minute minder>off. Hope this helps. It might be a little
different on your phone.
Chrissy Streaty: The handwriting thing is cool :-)
Teddy Maitre: i disagree with this video no offense
cgrscott: Good review, young man. You are going places, for sure. :-) I bought this
phone last March. It is Tracfone's minor step up from a plain phone, with
no touch screen, to a semi-smart phone, with a touch screen. And that is
really all that it is and I accept it as the minor upgrade that it is. But,
GleeFanYep, you did one of the better presented reviews of the LG 800G.
Christopher711: The keys are a little too salland close together. Yeah , you're typing on a
phone. figured as much.
acherrysherry: Yes you can. you can change picture for incoming and outgoing calls, too.
Bauclair Mb: THE SCREEN IS TOOOOOO SMALL FOR MY HANDS
poundinghooves96: Can you change the homepage picture to a picture that you took yourself?
LSPD CLAN: they are now $24.99 at shoprite this weekend on sunday 7/8/2012
Christopher711: I am a big guy with big fingers. I mistype using a standard laptop
computer. I would go absolutely bonkers trying to type on a cell phone. lol
My attitude is that it's a phone. It's suppose to make and receive calls.
just my two cents. All the same thanks for sharing your experience with the
phone. I do like to hear about cell phones. I hope you find your future
cell phonde usage more satisfying. Gofd bless!
gleefanyep: I downloaded Opera Mini 4 and it worked well. It also has a built in
browser; however, I don't remember the name of it.
2peefrog: Im wondering to myself why did you make this video when your just saying
everything about it is painfull?
carlos morales: how i can unlock my sim app it ask me 4r 8 digit and give u 5 try and that
it!! some one can tell me how!! and yes glee u can take a photo by ur self
and put as home page
Miryam: I've had this phone for about 8 months now, and it's good- for a tracphone.
At first I thought it was the best thing ever as my previous phone was the
simple tracfone samsung slider. However, this phone couldn't even consider
holding a candle to non tracfone touch phones. The screen becomes quite
resistive and slow and you have to know just how to touch the screen in
which area to actually select certain options. However, keeping in mind
that this is the 1st touch tracfone, it's decent.
Teddy Maitre: i have this phone it rocks
Henry Butler: Yes, I'm pretty sure you can. You can do it on most phones.
Shayleece Miller: yes u can
SkyBarMan: DONT BUY THIS PHONE TEXTING IS IMPOSSIBLE AND IRRITATING. I HAD THIS PHONE
AND AM GETTING A NEW ONE BECAUSE I HATE THIS ONE SO MUCH
Scott Domzalski: IT DOESN'T COST 1200 A YEAR
naun516: Tracfone sucks
Lyd Harris: Yep you can change it to a picture you have taken yourself
gleefanyep: I concur. I was very pleased with the phone when I initially got it,
especially because it was my first touch screen phone, but I slowly began
to notice some flaws which forced me to change to a different phone-
Samsung SCH-R455C. Maybe it was the one you used to have?
psyjpg: Excellent video. Thorough, technical, organized. If only Consumer Reports
was this honest.
gleefanyep: I wanted to help people. If I had watched this review while I was shopping
for the phone I might not have purchased it. Or I would have had a better
idea of what I was getting.
Dorian Ryan: when you browse on opera mini, is it free?
poundinghooves96: Just wasn't sure since all of these phones I've seen have had the same
jason moore: does it have wifi ?
Karly Johnston: why would you spend $20 on accessories for a $40 phone?
Demiurge22: FINALLY!!! A reviewer that does NOT suffer from a speech impediment! Thank
you so much for putting this up. Its well organized, honest, and you
focused on relevant functions. I just got through listening to some guy
ramble for five minutes about the charging outlet. Oh. My. GOD!
cgrscott: I have the 4GB micro SD card in my LG 800G for taking photos and playing my
manually copied .m4a music files.
Day Time: I have this phone and I Love it!! -- It is easy to use and everything works
great for me! -- Texting and e-mails are a breeze. Sound is very clear!!
and Price is Right! - I've had Samsung androids in the past and I prefer
StinkyCheese9999: Yes, it's probably just a matter of right-clicking a picture you download
(or transfer via USB cable, bluetooth, or memory card) and selecting to use
it as the wallpaper, though it would be best if you first resize it to the
resolution of the phone screen, and ideally, soften it some so you don't
notice the pixels as much and so icons and text show up better on top of it.
cgrscott: I'm surprised what a decent .m4a music file player it is and I just learned
that today. If your music files are from your iTunes library and they are
in the .m4a file format, the LG 800G operating system uses the iTunes data,
in the files, to organize the music files into their albums and it displays
the album artwork provided by iTunes. I was not excepting that.
ttwarrior1: which internet browser does it use? on sale on qvc right now for 99 with
Lesberatti's Place: Yes I was asking the other person if they know that they can set the time
limkit on the lock feature, I did not ask "Do you know?" I said "You DO
know, that you can adjust the ti,e on the lock feature. Don't You?"
Kevin Cortez: Cheap ass phone from Walmart
