Yes, I have GPRS working fine in SHR with AT&T.  It was very helpful
for me to do the following before I started GPRS:

# logread -f

pppd logs there and you'll likely see lots of relevant messages, maybe
even an obvious error.  As someone else pointed out, you've got to
make sure the ppp device exists in /dev which has been a problem on
SHR.  You can do it permanently via their instructions, or with:

# modprobe ppp_generic

I also made another simple graphical utility to launch GPRS.  See my post here:
