JoeDaddy, sounds like the logistics of your house is in hand-off spot where the HSDPA/UMTS network stops and hands off to the EDGE network. If you can picture your phone on the top of a fence, it can fall either way but is doing a balancing act and probably confusing the phone to pick one of the two networks for a hand-off. Hence the phone probably freaking out and hosing the functionality as you described in your post. I would normally say 99% of the time, any UMTS/EDGE phone would not be in your situation but be mobile to do a proper hand-off or be total transitioned to UMTS or EDGE signal.
On the bright side, as you stated, the 3G devices are AWSOME and no CDMA/EVDO network can touch the simultaneous voice and data connection. From what I hear, the 750 will get the HSDPA update soon which will change the "U" to "H".
Good luck on the "house being in the middle" of a hand off and let us know if things gets better.
