If you are changing your ISP you should ensure all your PUBLIC dns records are correct such as your A Record for your mail server, and the MX record match the A record for the mail server.

The blackberry devices should automatically update this information when the DNS server propagates the changes.

The blackberry's don't associate IP address with your BES - they use service books which list the SRPID. As a result you don't need to worry about the devices as they communicate with the blackberry relays, and the relays communicate with your BES.
