On a BlackBerry device, e-mails, maps, browser, etc... all require Blackberry Data service. This service arrives at the device in the form of Service Books. Service Books require authentication to RIMs network. gprs
means you have a data signal from your carrier, but you cannot authenticate to RIMs servers for Blackberry data. GPRS
means you have a data signal from your carrier, and you've successfully authenticated to RIMs servers.
The only way to get GPRS on a Blackberry device is to have a Blackberry Data Plan. This plan is what allows you to authenticate to RIMs servers. Without it, you can't authenticate, and you can't use data features on the device.
