I just got this trac fone and I am miffed about the missing manual to get this phone set up properly!!
For one...where is the speaker phone button?
Someone said...when you are calling...press the soft center key to toggle it on and off.
It doesn't work!!
Can you help me with this?

Hank,

Yes, a better manual would be good.

You adjust the call volume during a call by pressing the up and down buttons on the side. When a call is not in progress, those buttons control the ringer volume.

You can turn the speaker phone off and on during a call by pressing the button in the center of the square. There will be a tiny speaker icon on the screen to indicate whether pressing the button will turn the speaker phone off or on.

Hope this works for you.

Regards,

Speaker phone problem
by: Anonymous

I bought the LG420G for myself and a similiar Samsung (targeting seniors) for my wife. After playing with the menus, etc. I finally found the hearing aid feature. I don't understand why none of these phones come with instruction manuals. I had the same problem as everyone else with the speaker phone button on the LG, still have not found it on the Samsung, they are similiar phones so maybe the same button during call will work. Too early to tell just how satisfied we will be with these phones and with tracfone in general. Had no problem with activation and initial call time added to the phones.

Speaker Phone
by: Victor

Ah ha and halleluiah! Relief finally from speaker phone ear. One more call with the speaker phone stuck on would have resulted in hearing loss.
The key here is that the control must be used during a call. I would have never known had it not been for Google search and discovery of legions of others with the same issue along with the solution on line.

Great User Manual for LG420G
by: Anonymous

As posted by another commenter, this website location for the complete LG420G user manual is great! I wish Tracfone had included this with my phone. I've been searching for a better manual and this is the best I've seen for the LG420G.

Go to www.scribd.com and search for LG420G.

I have no complaints about the LG420G. I think for the price combined with the Tracfone service it's incredible. Here the phone works extremely well and the phone service is really great. No complaints at all.

Activation was fine for me
by: Anonymous

As much as I complain about Tracfone service, I bought the LG420G to replace another LG Tracfone that did not have bluetooth. Activation using the online option worked fine, and I was able to transfer my current Tracfone number; however, I agree about the instructions received from Tracfone. They are a joke.

LG420G Quick Manual
by: Conrad

On the LG website I was able to download a program that allows one to download LG manuals. The manual was a quick manual, but to me better than the one that comes with the Tracfone. It appeared to be one of these foldout ones. I blew it up to make it readable and added the comments about the speaker phone from this site to it. Go to www.scribd.com and search for LG420G.

LG Speaker phone

Speaker phone. After researching the manual and other methods I finally asked the question on Google and seems many of us had the same problem. Thanks so much for helpful hint on the speaker phone. Glad I didn't have to spend another couple of hours researching something that is not explained by the manufacturer...

just got the track phone with no manual. If you donwload it, it still does not tell you half of the things you need to know, especially the speaker phone.
It also took me 24 hours to get service.

The speaker on the Tracfone 420G
by: Anonymous

I had a lot of trouble finding the speaker on/off. Finally found someone who wrote in with the same problem after about 1.5 hours of reading and playing with the phone. Thanks SB for the solution - I was about to lose my mind!

Tracfone, UGGGGH
by: Anonymous

Thank you for sharing that. I downloaded the manual and it doesn't even tell you how to do it. I'm very disappointed in Tracfone. I replaced my old phone with the LG 420 and it took 24 hours to activate but I have no service. This is the third day without a cell phone so I called Tracfone and they tried to help but still have no service. Said to call back in 5 days if I still don't have service. That's just unacceptable, in my opinion. They should also send you a manual with the phone. It's 2 pages and wouldn't be that hard to attach, but they make you download it yourself.
