LG 420G Speakerphone use?

My wife picked up a Tracfone prepaid cell.
The manual is not much of one as to using the features.
Can anyone tell me how to turn the speakerphone on and off?
I tried calling them and gave up after being on hold 20 minutes.

Yes, as posted in the header this is the LG 420G phone.
I have searched and found nothing so far.
I am amazed that Tracfone can put a phone out with no instructions on the features it has.
I think it's a pretty new phone.

During a call, press the center soft key to toggle the speaker on/off. There should be a speaker icon above the soft key.

OK, well I found out why the speaker was not showing on the screen.
Like he says, it shows during a call. And, as it turns out, my phone, even though it says it's active online and on the phone, is not active. I had activated my phone online but had not yet tried to call anyone.
I have called the company and they assure me it will be active soon.
They say someone had recorded the sim card # wrong.
We will see what happens today.

I cannot understand why this would be true.
The phone is brand new and was ordered directly from their website.
But I suppose anything is possible. The last I heard is that my phone would work in the nest 15 minutes. That was on Friday and needless to say the phone still does not work.
I have asked online for my money back for the minutes I paid for and cannot use.
If I don't get that I will challenge the charges against my credit card.
Then I guess I have a choice as to just lose the $22 for the phone or pay $8 to get $22 back to ship it.
It's still not a good way to do business.
I have spent lots of time on the phone with too many people trying to make this thing work.

Tracfone buys older model cell phones in BULK, and many need new sim cards.

OK, interesting. This one is a new model according to what I have found.
It makes little difference to me at this point as I have spent 5 days and some 8 hours on the phones with these clowns and nobody can make the phone work.
And when I try to use it it charges airtime~this for a phone that cannot make or receive a call.
