Please, help me with this phone, how do i:
1.- delete from the server?
When you delete a message on the phone it will delete it on the server if that is supported by the server and the protocol you are connected with, IMAP for example.

Syncing of contacts is set up when the account is created. There does not seem to be a way to change this after the fact. You can configure which accounts are shown on the contact list by swiping down in Contacts and selecting settings.

This is normally the way a gmail account is configured automatically by the device. When creating the account you can choose to sync contacts or not, and sync the calendar or not. Accounts that use IMAP get messages very quickly, not as fast as BES push, but not a lot slower.

No the hub is not optional. The text messages icon will take you to the hub, but directly to the Text Messages tab.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
