Sadly the companies today are all looking for easy way to make big money and spend almost nothing on support or product improvements on older devices. If you look at the cell phone companies who sold out to Google Android and let Google very quickly obsolete the older versions of the OS forcing customers to up date their phones you will also notice Google claims the new versions cannot work on phones older than a couple of years. Apple is doing the same thing with their product line. So Apple and others expect customers to buy $1000 phones every two years, ya sure.
Ever wonder why the batteries are not removable by users? Same reason. Most will buy a new phone when the thing starts to fail charging or wont last for a couple of days .
My Z10 replacement battery cost $7 and a new Z10 on Ebay was about $20. With blackberry dropping the support sites and App site it wont be long before we are all forced to update but as long as the phones I have work I will keep them.
Hope you resolve your issue.
