There is a USB connection on the LG phone on the side of the phone, where the send button is located. The music will be saved in the audio folder, and you can access it under "My Folder"

Yes, you need to buy a cable.

You can find them on ebay:

I have a similar problem with my Straight Talk Prepaid LG 290C Phone but I'm not sure if it's the same issue. They vicariously place their speaker phone button where you need to grip the phone. Maybe your turning it on by accident.

straighttalk and Tracfone are the same company and yet sraighttalk charges 70 for this phone and I got mine through Tracfone and it was 20 ...makes no sence. I got ahold of the company to see if they would or could switch it to straighttalk since i have tracfone and they said no...go figure!!!
