If you want international coverage, you should get BES unless you want to invest several hours/month with the brain surgeons at Cingular. The Cingular unlimited international data plan is overpriced, but it works, and with a BES you'll get no questions about IM, RSS feeds, ...
If you don't travel out of the US, BIS should work, once you get Cingular to bill you correctly.
I pay $20/month for BES because (1) I travel out of the US a lot , (2) I don't enjoy wasting hours talking to Cingular, and (3) I like the wireless sync with my MACs at home and at work.
