Will the Bold synchronise my PC data?

I have been loaned a Bold 9780.  How do I set it up to do the following please? I don't mind being referred to a manual. I'm looking for the documentation now...

 

Sychronise MS Outlook data

1) Tasks

2) Calendar

3) Contacts

4) OneNote (would be nice)

 

Synchronise other data

5) Files

 

Can the Bold display these?

a) Excel & Word docs

b) PDFs

c) BMPs.

 

If the phone is reset and synchronised, do outstanding reminders re-appear?

Well, you asked for a lot, and I didn't want to disappoint you! The only thing I know nothing about is OneNote.

Re: Will the Bold synchronise my PC data?

I've been through all this now and am gradually getting the BB to work. It's been a bit of a struggle though and there are outstanding issues that I'm dealing will bit by bit.

 

For example, I was getting a server error message with no idea about the cause. After a bit of digging it turns out that my carrier (O2) can route my connection to BB services. It activates at midnight. We shall see...
