Hi and Welcome to the Community!
If memory serves me correctly, that version of BBM still had the contacts "local" rather than "in the cloud". To achieve the result of your BBM contacts in the cloud and thereby available to any device using the same BBID, you must upgrade your BBM version on your 9900. You can do so via BBWorld, or from your BB Browser via www.blackberry.com/bbm.
You may also want to review the Backup link in my auto-sig on this post...there are links to specific information regarding BBM and backups of contacts with prior versions. To be safe, it's always wise to do a backup before you make major changes on your device.
