Upgrade to WiFi -MS
A WiFi enabled device is able to connect to the internet through WiFi networks for free without charging the user any units/minutes.

Thus using a phone with WiFi capability allows the user to surf the web, email, and much more without spending any money!

This can be a great feature for many people who like to use their phone for more than just calling and texting.

So below is a list of several phones from Tracfone that have WiFi Capability! Leave a comment if you know of other phones offered by Tracfone with WiFi.

Update - Tracfone Android Smartphones have WiFi!

We are excited to update this slightly outdated post with information on the Android powered smartphones that Tracfone has begun to provide to consumers.

These phones all come with WiFi, along with many other great features.

So check out our List of Android Tracfone Smartphones or learn more about Android by viewing our 6 Key Differences between Android and Other Mobile Devices.

WiFi Enabled Tracfone Devices:

Here is a list of the current Tracfone mobile devices that come with WiFi capability. Click the link to view our full review of each phone.

LG 840G - This touchscreen phone comes with lots of features, but most importantly Triple Minutes for Life, and WiFi. If you like touchscreen phones or want a modern device with decent sized screen for surfing the web, the LG 840G is a great choice. Check out our review of the LG 840G for full feature list and specs.

Samsung S390G - This phone comes with a compact full QWERTY keyboard making texting and typing fast. In our experience, full qwerty keypads are easy to get accustomed to and make for easy texting. Learn more about this phone by reading our full Samsung S390G Review.

$10 on Amazon!
LG 440G - A flip phone that offers another option to touchscreen and qwerty keyboards for those who like more traditional style phone. Another great thing about this phone is the low price - typically $20 but often on Amazon for $10! Get more infor about this phone by reading our LG 440G Review.

*Note: Initially Tracfone posted that the LG 440G would have WiFi, but it turns out it does not. However, it does use 3G networks, making surfing the web via the mobile browser faster than most other Tracfone Cell Phones, but you will be charged for it.

Bonus - LG 306G - This phone was recently released by Tracfone and has many similarities to the LG 840G with a handful of differences as well. View our full review of the LG 306G for the details.

Ah, yes sometimes I have various troubles with Tracfone. Here are two methods for contacting them besides calling customer service. Both of these may take some time, but they should get you the assistance you need.

First option, contact them through a form online here:

Second option is to post in the Official Tracfone Forum here:

Hope that helps. I have found that it usually takes some patience, but Tracfone does try to set things right in the end.

Are there any promo codes for the $30./month 1000 minute plan on a Samsung Trac Phone?

Anonymous said...

Many sites say this has no Wifi, but you say it does. Who is correct?

Peter Vanosdall said...

Which phone are you refering to? If it is the LG 840G I can confirm it has WiFi.

The 440g.

Looks like you corrected the articles. It's all good :)

When using the LG 840g in a WiFi area do regular calls use minutes?

Peter Vanosdall said...

Ah, yes, Tracfone initially reported this phone had WiFi, which the Net 10 version does (I think), but they corrected that, and so it has been changed above as well. Thanks for your comment!

Looking for CDMA Wifi capable Tracfone with triple minutes.

Peter Vanosdall said...

Don't think there are any with WiFi, but here is a CDMA phone from tracfone with triple minutes: Samsung R455C

You don't mention S425G as having wiFi. The information on it seems to suggest that it does. Does it doesn't it?

Peter Vanosdall said...

In my investigation I can't find information that suggests it does have WiFi, but I will continue to investigate.

This post is great. Thank you for this post. I like this kind of people who share their knowledge with others.

I bought two Tracfone LG 840g's from HSN recently after the products demos repeatedly confirmed the phone DOES have wifi calling which does not deduct minutes. I have wifi set up on my phone but it still uses the 3g for calls & deducts minutes. Any idea how to implement the wifi calling? Thx. Jane

Is there an Android phone I can buy from say Alibaba for cheap, ($80 or so) that I can make calls with, using the free Wi-fi at the library?

I bought a LG 840G from HSN. It is being shipped and I should receive it in 3 more business days. HSN sells the phone as one thatincludes 1500 minutes of air time. On their video demonstration they clearly show a 1500 minute card, which is valued at $199.99. When I ordered over the phone I asked if the 1500 minute plan/card is included with the phone. The HSN sales person said no, there is a 500 minute plan/card included which will be tripled to 1500 minutes. It's confusing (maybe deceptive on purpose by HSN) which will really come with the phone. Can anyone fill me in on which comes with a LG 480G? If a 1500 minutes card comes with it as shown in their video can it be tripled to really get 4500 minutes plus promo code minutes? Or does a 500 minute plan/card come with the phone that will be tripled to 1500 minutes (plus any available promo code minutes)? I will share my findings when the phone arrives.

Can I purchase a Trac font and use it for wifi only to surf the net and download games

Elizabeth James said...

i have a tracfone but i can not use the internet, cant use ebay app, cant use facebook app without being on a wifi network which makes no sense cause with straight talk you only need cell signal to do all these things. i'm not always going to have a wifi connection living in the country

Tracfone charges you minutes when you are connected to WIFI. Your talk and text are charged even if you are connected to WIFI. When you call tracfone tech support your minutes are being charged as they put you on hold and try to remedy a problem that they usually can not remedy. If they put you on hold for a tech person who knows what they are doing, you are being charged. dont think you will save money because you are on wifi all the time. their advertisements and web page is very misleading.

I have been with Tracfone for over 15 years. I do not need to be connected to my phone 24/7, so for me it works fine. However, I recently purchased a newer phone because of the WiFi capability. Up until very recently I was able to use my iPhone 4 through my WiFi and not use my minutes. This was fabulous while it lasted. It is no longer doing that now. Even connected to my home WiFi and my data off my minutes are being used. This may be a result of an update, as Tracfone must have been losing a lot of $$$

My 76 year old mother has been using Tracphone for years only when she travels away from home as she gets no signal at her house.
She wanted to try a smartphone so I went with her to the store to make sure her new phone had WiFi calling capabilities.
And it did. For a time.
Luckily I was suspicious.
I did have the sales person write out on the receipt: If future software updates disable the WiFi callig feature that I would be entitled to a full refund.
Selling a full featured phone and later hobbling seems like intentional bait and switch.
When you are connected to a home WiFi network you have already paid for data usage through your service provider. Forcing you to use airtime while on WiFi seems like charging you again for something you already paid for.
