The 9900 was NEVER advertised that it would be able to run BB10. RIM was always clear to everyone that only the new devices would be able to run their new OS. Oh, and if you want a specific why for the 9900? It doesn't have the processor, memory or storage it would need to run BB10/QNX.
(and they also stranded everyone on PlayBook, but I digress).
Indications are that they're migrating from a handset business to a services business. Current BB handsets have to pay for the BlackBerry service. That's just the way it is.

BBM does work over wifi, but you also need a cellular data plan. That's also true with the other devices (though I've heard some reports of people getting it working over wifi-only devices).
So those customers are also paying their carriers for a data plan, just not a BlackBery one. I know in several countries these are the same price - BB was pushing the carriers previously to make sure the BB plan wasn't more expensive than a regular data plan. But it's the carriers that dictate that.
Understand the experience you have on BB is a lot more robust than what people are experiencing on iOS and Android. BB is able to ensure your messages are delivered - the other platforms don't have that level of integrity.

Sir, I respect ur answers.
I live in Pakistan here we cannot use bbm over wifi and we have to pay a minimum of $3.5 per month and on the other hand IOS and Android users dosen't need to pay anything for it. As you said our bbm is better in terms we can get ensured our messages are delivered but sir we are Blackberry users and they are not we have paid for blackberry smartphones they have'nt i myself paid $ 400 for blackberry 9900 still i have to pay a minimum of $3.5 for bbm and they are using it for free
do you think its fair with us?
