Of course you may trigger GPRS-register e.g. by sending some magic sms,
but there is no such thing as a GPRS call. 
GPRS is "always online" data transmitted between mobile and base station, with 
a different protocol than GSM-calls. If your sim doesn't allow for GPRS, no 
call will help.
You may place GSM-data calls to a mobile special data number by using a modem 
(or via ISDN by setting data-service flag), same way you can fax. Anyway this 
is limited to 9600/14400 b/s datarate.
