You will see GPRS and possibly even gprs on an EDGE enabled handheld.
If you are not provisioned by the wireless provider for the high speed network (wich may be standard now) then you won't be able to use EDGE and therefore will only see gprs or GPRS.
If you are in an area that currently does not have EDGE coverage, you will see gprs or GPRS.
Same thing goes for 1x/1X/1x-ev/1X-EV on the CDMA side.
