    Ive thumbed thru the 278 pages of the BB Passport manual but could not find answers to a few questions about newer BB products. Ive owned Curves and a Bold and miss many BB features that my Galaxy S4 does not have. The following legacy features are important to me and while not critical, I would prefer to have access to them. Any information about the following short list would be greatly appreciated. Im very tired of my Samsung and leaning towards the Passport or the Classic, if necessary.
    1. Are there shortcuts for functions like: D Memo, U Calculator, C Compose, K Lock, L Calendar, etc.? The only shortcuts I saw were associated with the Browser.
    2. Deletion of emails. Can you delete on either BB or Server or Both?
    3. On my previous BB phones, my emails stayed on the phone forever unless I deleted them. Is this possible?
    4. Synching. One of my pet peeves on the Galaxy is the synching of contacts and/or email. I do not want to enable any type of synching. Is it possible to own/use a newer BB without any type of synching?
    5. Profiles. Is there a capability to create and customize unique profiles with respect to notifications, volume, reject all calls except a specific number, etc.?
    6. I have become pretty fond of Google Maps over the years.is it available on either of these phones?
    Thanks in advance for responses......I'm anxious to order one or the other.
