Sync cable for BlackBerry Flip 8230

I recently bought a Blackberry Flip 8230 to replace my (lost) Blackberry 8130.  I tried to synch it tonight with the old cord for my other Blackberry but it did not fit.  I can't remember if a synch cord comes with the phone or is it something I have to purchase separately??


A second related question - is there any way to actually see and edit my addressees (on Outlook or Excel or Word or some other program) on my computer?  If I get another type of phone (like an Iphone) is there anyway to transfer the information on my Blackberry to a usable form on my computer so I could transfer it to my Iphone?


Please let me know if you have any information on either/both of these questions.

There should have been a USB cable with it and Desktop Manager on a CD to sync with outlook.
