I know this may sound like the obvious, but have you tried bouncing it? If you use a paperclip on the back of the device, under the battery cover, in the little "Reset" hole, and soft boot the unit, it may then attempt to reacquire the network and push you into GPRS instead of gprs. If you still are unable to acquire after the reset, I'd contact TMo again and see if you can get a new device to test the connection in your area out with. It might be a hardware issue....or just a connectivity issue.

Wish I could be of more help.
