The provider's BIS portal is going away. Regardless, you can do all you need on the handset nowadays, unless you are running a very old OS on a very old BlackBerry.
BlackBerry ID is you, so to speak, and it is independent of your BIS account. It isn't just App World. It is BlackBerry Protect, and other things to come, I'm sure. You may switch carrier's and have a BIS account on that carrier, but your ID will follow you.
