Yes, you can continue using BIS with the 8800. The model of your BB does not dictate whether you have to use BES or BIS. That's a decision that you make based on your needs.

If you're switching BB's you can just transfer the BIS account to the PIN and IMEI of the new BB. Wiping the old BB or deleting its service books will take care of things after the transfer.
