    I see that the classic is getting the old BBOS shortcuts.
    This is the single biggest thing that I miss from my 9900.
    Is this something we can expect to get on the Passport? I don't see why it couldn't work on it.

    These are the ones I mean:

    Launch the Browser – B
    Compose a Message – Within the BlackBerry Hub – C
    Launch the Weather App – W
    Launch the Calculator – U
    Launch BBM – N
    Lock BlackBerry Classic – K
    Toggle Notification Modes – Q
    Launch Settings – O
    Open Contacts/Address Book – A
    Launch Help – H
    Create a new Note - D
    Launch Phone - P
    Launch Clock - R

    I don't see "Launch Search" (or assistant as it's now called) - S

    The shortcuts are there for the Q10 on OS - do you have that version on your phone to see if it's available?

    You can also change them because I didn't like their shortcuts and wiped them all and redid them.

    No, I'm on 10.3.0 right now. I figured that it wasn't worth going with a leak so close to an official one being released.
    Of course I'm assuming it will be released soon. LOL

    There are shortcuts for specific places, like calendar, clock, etc.
    Shortcuts - User Guide - BlackBerry Passport Smartphone - 10.3
    Are there any others?

    I think it's important to remember that this is not a keyboard centered smartphone.

    I know it's not, but I don't see why this couldn't work
    On the 9900, you could change it from auto search to shorcuts
    I liked the shortcuts, because search was just a quick press of 'S' away anyhow.

    you can still search - to activate the shortcuts you have to do a long press and hold

    Okay, I took the plunge, and it looks like it has been added. Woohoo
    If I knew it was there, I would have done it earlier.
    Too bad it has to be a long press. I would have rather had the option like before.
    But I'll take it

    But the nice thing about the long press is that it works anywhere.
    You can be in one app and call up the other without leaving.
    Pros and cons I guess
