    Yes, all of that should work, only problem would be some Apps won't work due to them not being updated to support iOS 5, but they probably will soon after iOS 5 releases. Hope this helps!

    no, go on iTunes and click return to factory settings, it may be on you're device in settings too

    Go to SETTINGS / GENERAL / RESET.

    There are options there to Reset all Settings, Erase all Content and Settings, and a few other items you can reset/clear.
