Help Got my new captivate! How do I move over...

The contacts, I did a google sync on so thats fine and good to go.

I got three things I'm not sure are possible to move over from my oldblackberry 8900, but I would really appreciate some advice on these.

1. NOTES. I know you can do this using outlook but since I dont have a outlook setup, any other way?
3. CALENDER NOTES. I did sync my calender from my BB to my gmail account and then I synced it with the new captivate but it didnt seem to move over any small notes I have kept on my BB. For example, things like birthdays. I always noted those in my calender but those didnt get moved over.

Let me know your thoughts please
thanks much
