Tracfone LG 840g How to Install Java Apps



Heathishness says:

It’s too bad you can’t get rid of that keypad when using the Java apps. It pretty much makes them useless. The remaining screen space is just too small. I wouldn’t recommend this phone for anyone interested in actually using the Java application features.

Heathishness says:

Disregard my earlier comment. If you search google there is a way to remove the keypad by altering the jad file of the application you want to use. It’s still an annoying extra step. Some phones ask you if you want to disable the keypad. But, it can be done. I tried it, and it worked. (Tried it on Opera Mini 7.1)

Down and Dirty Donnie here. Are there ANY apps for this phone or is just a better phone all around than my ElCheapo Tracfone (that I have loved for 7 years? The screen looks really nice, it would be great to just mash a “icon” and get pictures, messages, dial a number etc. HOWEVER, it would be NICER to have cool “APPS” to play with too! I realize that for the price I can’t expect TOO MUCH, but a little new stuff to play with would make this OLD MAN happy as a hooker at a Democratic Convention!
