We are heading South soon and looking for coverage in WA, OR and CA.
As per Tracfone website the LG 500G:

"MP3 Player (cable and microSD Card not included)"

Also the website for Tracfone indicates Double Minutes, but do not know if that mean you have order the phone from Tracfone directly to qualify? So I am not much help on that question.

Yes.

It's easy and quick to transfer your ACTIVE telephone number and existing minutes too.

Go to www.tracfone.com and follow the activation menu. You could also call customer service but they're slow (but very nice people), you could be on hold a long time. If you do call them don't call from your Tracfone.

Yes, if you contact Tracfone. We moved to this from a Motorola C130 and had the number transferred to this phone, but have to do so with an account registered at Tracfone.

Tracfone can switch your old number to your new phone. I always try to talk to a live customer service person to switch.

you get minutes and airtime. Unused minutes will rollover so long as you have airtime. If you let airtime expire, all is lost including your phone number.

answer 3
The unused minutes don't expire as long as you have continuous service. If you allow your service to lapse, you lose your minutes. If it's just a few days, talk to a real customer service person and they probably can restore your minutes.
