Even in areas with EDGE coverage, the network will always fall back to
GPRS if you use a GPRS-only phone (like the OT-290). So the fact that
your town only has GPRS doesn't make a difference here.

Cool, this sounds like a good set of skills to address this problem.

I guess time is the key aspect here. I would definitely want to make
sure that whoever gets a OT-290 for implementing the GSMTAP interfacing
code is likely to be able to complete the task before GPRS is phased out ;)
So I guess I will leave it up to Denis and you to figure out who might
have more of an interest and/or time in this.
