LG440G Tracfone: mystery ICON
A mystery ICON recently appeared on my LG440G Tracfone. I have researched the 'user guide' and the LG website but cannot find out what the ICON refers to. I have attached a picture of my display screen. The ICON in question is above HOME and to the left. (Not the 3G icon).
View related: LG290C Signal Strenth icon?2011-11-04 21:13:39I just got the LG290C from Tracfone. I’m confused as to how the signal strength is displayed via the icon at the top. In the pictures and video I reviewed before purchasing it appears that the icon is represented as the typical 5 bar icon with the strength indicated by the number of green colored bars. Is this correct? On the phone I recieved the icon displays as 5 white bars, never any green filler. So I’m not sure if the display is faulty or there is no green and I am getting 5 bars reception indicated by white bars. Note so far the signal strength display has not varried from the 5 white bars icon in the areas traveled so far.....
Turn off Icon? LG 300G2011-11-04 15:53:30Hi
I have a LG 300G from Tracfone and this past week the 'Indicates the receipt of a voice mail message' icon popped on the display. I don't ever recall asking the phone for a receipt of a VMM.
According to the User Guide I found online this is the notification I'm receiving.
I have continually tried calling my VM Inbox and have listened for a way to switch this display icon off. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this.
If anyone know how to do this, please let me know as it would be GREATLY appreciated.
According to the Usr...
LG290c Successful File Transfer!2011-11-05 07:43:19Hi. New to this forum here.
I followed the instruction I've found in this place to be able to make file transfers (pictures in this case) from my LG290C Tracfone to my computer, using Bluesoleil. This works, indeed!
But I have a question. After I installed bluesoleil in my pc, there is a new connection icon on the tray (like the icon with 2 small monitors, only that this one has a re X on it.
Everything is working perfect...but I don't know if this new Icon with the red X means that something else may be wrong (I can't find anything wrong until this moment, except that, when windows start, an small and never seen before window opens, asking for a password. Then I hit ok without entering a password and then windows load normally.
When I place the mouse cursor over the new icon on the tray, it reads 'a network cable is unplugged'
If I open this icon, a window with 3 different connections opens, showing this new 'connection' as:
LOCAL AREA CONNECTION 3
NETWORK CABLE UNPLUGED, FIREWALLED.
BLUETOOTH PAN NETWORK ADAPTER
Is the above normal when you install a bluetooth adapter in your pc, or when you use the Bluesoleil software?
Thanks in anticipation!...
LG equivalent of 'LG 420g' from Tracfone?2011-11-04 17:34:07LG experts: please help us in the Net 10/Tracfone forum who have purchased an 'LG 420g' from Tracfone to figure out what LG model this is based on. Some of us would like to purchase accessories, but none are offered by TF, nor can we see tell from the LG website which accessories would work with it...there's no mention of this model there. A compatible CAR CHARGER, DATA CABLE & REAL MANUAL would be nice...all we've found so far is a 'quick start' guide...thanks!

Can I retreive deleted messages on my LG Tracfone?2011-11-11 16:28:18I have deleted a very important message from my Tracfone back in june of 2007. Can it be retreived and how would I go about it?...
Tracfone LG600G2011-11-05 19:33:56I recently purchased a new Tracfone LG600G phone. Tech support at Tracfone claims this phone does not have the capabilities of downloading pictures from the phone to my computer(the computer itself has no bluetooth stuff on it), however, other threads i have read claim this can be done with some kind of a bluetooth device. Just what is this device, and where can i get it? The people at Best buy didn't know what they were talking about when they sold me stuff they claimed would work, but i kept the receipts and got my money back. I feel it's ridiculous to have a phone and not be able to download the pics to my computer....
LG Xenon email notification icon2011-11-06 06:45:37I received an e-mail and notification which I ignored. I checked the email a few minutes later but the envelope icon with the 'e' over it in the status bar at the top has yet to go away. I logged into my email on the device through MobileMail and there are no unread messages there. Is there a way to reset the icon? I'm on Roger's wireless....
Tracfone LG420G White Screen2012-03-13 18:05:33Hi Everyone! I have a Tracfone LG420G. I was at the store this morning and made a call, everything worked fine. Put the phone in my pocket and drove home(20 mins). When I got home I opened the phone up to set the alarm clock, and the screen was bright white. Outside screen still displays time, date, signal, like before. Have had this phone for about four months with no problems. Previous phone was also Tracfone LG420G that I had for two years when it fell out of my pocket and got run over by a bus. Any ideas about the screen problem fix would be appreciated. Thanks!...

Information Icon, Or... ?2011-11-16 08:58:18Hello:
Re my new 8300:
Sometimes, after I set an option, in the lower right hand portion of the screen a small circle shows up with what appears to be an exclamation mark in it (maybe)
Just lasts for a second or so, so I can't really read it at all.
Might be a question mark; just disappears too fast.
I thought it was an icon for clicking for more information regarding the option, but just goes away too fast.
Any idea what it is ?
Or how ro keep on screen longer, if it actually is a clickable icon ?
Reposted from Tracfone forum: Google Voice and Tracfone lg800g Dialpad Problem2012-04-30 20:15:35I originally posted the following question on the Trafone forum, but later realized I probably should have posted on the LG forum:
I have a Tracfone lg800g that I'm trying to use with Google Voice. Everything works fine except for one thing: when I phone my Google Voice number and it rings my lg800g, I can't get GV to recognize that I've entered a '1' in the dialpad to accept the call, or in fact that I've entered any number at all. My regular Tracfone voicemail works fine; in fact, if I hold down the '1' key on the dialpad when I'm trying to accept a GV call, I wind up accessing my Tracfone voicemail-- so I know that the dialpad is working properly.
I normally have the dialpad touch effects turned off, so there's no touch sound when I hit a key on the dialpad, and my voicemail still works fine. But just to test with GV I turned on the touch effect sounds and that still made no difference: GV still didn't pick up the dialpad number entry.
Does anyone have a solution or workaround for this? I'd really like to get Google Voice working on this phone.
Exporting Contacts from LG101 (VM) to LG500G (TracFone)2012-06-28 05:10:42Hi guys,
Is this possible to do? I was told on the TracFone website forums that unless both phones have Bluetooth, I cannot transfer my contact list. My new LG500G has Bluetooth, but the LG101 model does not.
Is there anything else I can do besides save my contact list and input it into my new phone by hand?

Voyager VM icon doesnt go away unless I open VVM2011-11-08 21:55:31If I get a voice mail and check it by calling my VM #, the icon will stay on my display until I open visual voice mail. When I open VVM, there will be only old messages, but then the icon will go away. Is there any way to fix this short of always and only using VVM to check my messages?...
LG 840g email issues2013-06-28 12:41:09I recently purchased the Tracfone LG 840g and love the phone. I'm having issues with the email app - I can receive emails but not send. My primary email is through Outlook/Office365 and have been using the settings suggested by the Outlook web app, and all variations of those settings.
I posted to the Tracfone forums and the response from a TF rep was to use MMS to do emails. That just isn't acceptable to me.
Does anyone have any suggestions or hints?...
Env2 Speaker Phone Icon2011-11-08 09:13:56Hi. I've had the Env2 since May. I love it. However, I just noticed that every time I open the phone, the 'speaker phone' icon there and, in turn, so is the little blue banner. That's annoying. As far as I know there's no way to turn off the speaker phone because it's done automatically when you open/close the phone while on a call. Please let me know if this is just 'normal' and I've been too happy with the phone to notice until now or if there's someway to get rid of this icon so there's no little blue banner at the bottom. Thanks....
Voyager 10000 Shortcut Menu2011-11-12 01:47:26Okay guys (and gals ).. there MUST be a way to change the short cut menu? I just want to get rid of a few icons and replace them with useful ones . eg.

LG840G and Ford Sync2013-01-19 05:40:11Has anyone gotten the LG840G Tracfone to work with Ford Sync? I have seen a few posts in various forums on the web listing others with this problem, but no solutions yet. The phone is recognized by Sync but does not appear to connect. I called Ford Sync Support and they had no information on it. Sync Support suggested a 'reverse pairing'. Instead of the phone searching for Sync you have Sync search for your phone during paring. It did not help. The phone appears to pair and Sync indicates 'LG840G Saved'. After that it appear to lock up.
I previously had a LG600G Tracfone that worked flawlessly with Sync....
Weird Venus picture menu icon2011-11-11 09:47:17Okay, I have saved wallpapers to my phone in my pics folder using my card reader. When I go into my pictures menu on my venus it shows the thumbnails on the left side, and then there is a weird icon on the right hand side. It is a question mark with an angled square behind it. All 4 images I loaded do this. The icon has the same name as the picture, and cannot be erased. I guess it's not a big deal, but it is annoying. Any idea what I can do to fix this? I saved the pics as a .gif using photoshop. I edited them and then I saved for web and devices. I used a resolution of 72 and the images are 240 x 320. They look great on the phone!...
