Yes to both. We've used it with a 4GB mini SD card. Has earplug for decent mp3 playing. Song loading can be done through a USB cord.

I don't know what Wal-mart offers but if the number is the same, it's the same phone. It takes a mini SD card and can work as an MP3 player and has double minutes.

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.

You need to buy a memory card with an adapter so it will fit in your phone and your computer. Mine uses a SD card. Put music on the card, with the adapter, from your computer and then open the back and pop the card into the phone, without the adapter.
