lol... "advanced gprs"... what in the heck is that? HSPDA? 3G? EDGE? There's no such thing as "advanced gprs."
As of now no cell phones can connect to the PS3 (should change in the future... I think the pres of Sony had an Erickson phone at E3 he connected to a PS3).
However, some cell phones that allow data like GPRS can be connected to a PC and the PC can use the phone as a modem. I guess then you could potentially set up your computer to be an internet access point and plug your PS3 into your computer for internet. That's the only way I think this would work and even then... I don't really think it's possible.
Even if you had something like HSPDA available with a good signal, it wouldn't be able to transmit data quick enough in my opinion.
Basically... you can't do it. Maybe you can in the future with the right phone/software, right data plan and availability with your network, and an update to the PS3. The likelihood of that? Maybe 0.03%
I've connected my phones (Treo 600, 650, 750, Cingular 8125, and now the Nokia e90) to my laptops when I go out of town and need the internet. I usually use blutooth to connect and my phone becomes the modem for my laptop. It works great for surfing the net and checking email. This type of thing has been around for I don't even know... 6 years now? But it probably wouldn't be enough to handle the quick response times the PS3 would need.
