If it won't charge from the wall or cradle *AND* ActiveSync won't find it then its USB plug is faulty.

You can only sync wireless via Bluetooth. You can sync via WiFi to an Exchange Server. But if you can't charge the handset you won't have batter long enough to have Bluetooth or WiFi on for a while.
