China unicom do not do a blackberry internet service unless you are working in china. Which is annoying as they actually have the best general internet services! China Mobile do BBM and internet but can be quite expensive on PAYG (i'm paying 98rmb per month but regularly go over this amount when trying to access googlemaps and internet pages)
You will need to go to a China Mobile store with your passport and phone in order to sign up for the BIS!
Hope this helps!!!

China unicom does have BIS but will only issue it to business customers! Have not heard much about China Telecom, i guess it is a smaller company - China unicom and China mobile are the main ones!
I havnt seen any SIM stalls at the airport but would make sense for them to be there, possibly at hongqiao but very unlikely at pudong (both shanghai) i would have thought....
Your best bet is to find a Carreforre or other similar convenience store which sells mobile phones, there are street vendors who sell SIM cards and top ups also...
You can get the SIM and then go with that, your phone and your passport to the store and they should be able to register you, to be honest its a very big hassle for 8 days so if possible, i would just use your roaming on your home network!
I dont think there are any shorter plans for BIS services other than monthly! - Hope this helps!
