The GPRS service on your iPhone is a mobile data connection protocol, similar to EDGE, 4G or 3G. The GPRS service may be offered as a connection option by your cellular provider. Though the iPhone prioritizes a wireless connection over a GPRS connection, you can still incur unwanted data charges when the device connects to a GPRS network, particularly while roaming. You can disable GPRS, as well as the other mobile data connections, in the iPhone device settings menu.
