BIS - Blackberry Internet Service (usually used by individuals - you set up to 10 accounts that are pushed to your BB)

BES - Blackberry Enterprise Service (Usually granted by work and synchs your calendar and contacts realtime)

I am guessing that you are on BIS. EDGE is the network that both work under if your carrier is ATT.

Didn't mean to imply that EDGE was ATT specific I thought your carrier was ATT.
