I see we do have instructions for GPRS at
though I believe some of the information may be outdated.

I have attached to that wiki page a tar with the complete set of config files I

A common pitfall: your phone must have an APN configured, anyone will do (e.g.
in your smartphone config just enter name 'test' and APN 'test').
