Possible to Record Conversations etc.
by Richard B

Is it possible to record a conversation between two people when the phone is on, but the flip is closed on either of the 2 models (above). and how would I go about it?
How do I tell which carrier I have for either phone? There's no indication on the bottom of the screen on either phone.
Can I call my cell phone from a land-line phone and hear my voice mail messages?
Regarding the camera: Is there any way to silence the shutter click you hear when taking a picture?
Thanks for your questions. I will answer based on the LG 440G, but the answer may apply to others.
You may be able to record conversations via a Java app on the 440g, however, I have never tried it. Your best bet there is to try and download one from the GetJar.com site. Note, you cannot install Java apps on the 420g from Tracfone though you can try a workaround at your own risk.
Regarding networks, your carrier is indicated on the SIM card. According to Prepaid Phone News, you can go to:
Menu > Prepaid > SIM Number
- if the number starts with 890141 your carrier is AT&T and
- if the number starts with 890126 your carrier is T-Mobile.
Yes, you can check your voicemail from a landline.
Camera Shutter Tones
To turn off the shutter sound, go to:
Camera > Settings > Others > Shutter Tones and select "Off"
