    Hello. Nice to meet you all! I have a question I need answer to and I have done some searching online and I cannot find an answer to, yet someone here many indeed have the answer for me.

    I own now for the first time a entry level Smartphone, the LG840G mobile phone with Tracfone as my carrier. (Yes, some of you many not classify this mobile phone as a genuine Smartphone and others will. For sake of argument, lets classify it as a Smartphone.) I am very happy with this Smartphone so far. I have learned a lot and am still learning. There is something I need answered.

    My question: When one uses the native web browser (NOT the much discussed and popular Opera Mini web browser) with the LG840G, how does one delete of the history or record list of URLs under "Enter URL"??? [Steps: "Browser" -> Menu Icon in upper right corner -> "Enter URL"] There is a list of all of the websites one has visited.

    Yes, I have deleted the following:

    1. "Recent Pages" found under the menu icon where I deleted each webpage individually so I end up with a "No Recent Pages".

    2. "Settings" -> "Cache" -> "Clear Cache" with the "Allow Cache" set to OFF.

    3. "Settings" -> "Cookies" -> "Delete Cookies" with the "Allow Cookies" set to OFF.


    ...and I have restarted (powered OFF/ON) the LG840G still seems to keep that history or record list of URLs I have visited under "Enter URL".

    Please tell me how to delete the history or record list of URLs under "Enter URL"???

    Please reply.

    Thank you!

    Hello. Nice to meet you tavenger5!

    I appreciate your help with my issue.

    Unfortunately your option and steps do not exist for my phone. Just to make note, when I say "menu" in my original OP at top, I mean it is the menu WITHIN the native web browser, not the actual phone's menu itself. Let me say that I do not see any option as part of the phone's menu regarding the deletion of URLs.

    The closest thing that I can think logically to what I need done is the web browser's menu option "Recent Pages" where I can individually delete each URL there, but it has no impact on the "Enter URL" listing of previously visited websites.

    If you can think of anything else, please share.

    Thanks!

    Re: How to delete the history (record) list of URLs under "Enter URL" in the LG840G???

    Hello. I am back.

    After several hours testing by trial and error, I have determined there is a solution, but not the one I had hoped for! I am going to present the facts and not be long winded.

    1. There is "exclusive" NO URL history erase, deletion capability/feature/option with the LG840G
    unlike other mobile phones that DO offer this capability/feature/option.

    2. It CAN be done (erase or delete the URL history) with the LG840G, however it requires to delete the "Phone" memory storage location which will wipe out all the phone's data exlcuding the data on your micro SD card like audio, ringtones, pictures and video.

    3. There are 3 storage locations with the LG840G: "Phone" memory storage location, "SIM" card memory storage location and the micro SD card storage location. Again, leave the micro SD card out of this since it maintains the audio, ringtones, pictures, and video. However, keep the "Phone" and "SIM" card memory storage locations in mind because they work in tandem with one another with the data with the LG840G.

    4. When you erase and delete the URL history of the LG840G, you will lose all personal settings, configurations, and customizations and your long list of "Contacts" one personally created IF you do not make a copy from your "Phone" storage location to your "SIM" storage location. When you do make a copy of your Contacts to your SIM card , and you erase or delete the URL history (technically, your "phone" storage location), you will STILL HAVE your Contacts on your SIM card. After you are done erasing/deleting your HRL history of the LG 840G, I recommend that you copy back from your "SIM" storage location, your "Contacts" to the "Phone" storage location. Reason: So if one or the other storage location gets disrupted or corrupted, you will still have your "Contacts" in your other storage location.

    5. Unfortunately, following the erasure or deletion of your URL history of the LG840G, you will STILL HAVE to redo your personal settings, configurations, and customizations all over again. Not fun, but not the time consuming torture of having to rebuild your "Contacts" again!

    I hope this helps.

    Take care!
