My network is stuck on GSM! How do you get it back on GPRS?

I have a blackberry bold 9780 and my network provider is t-mobile. The signal usually says GPRS but yesterday it changed to GSM. I have taken the battery out and the sim and it still doesn't change back. I have also changed the network selection mode to manual but its still stuck. I can't use the internet and my emails don't come through either. Really need help asap please Smiley Happy
