Never stood up once, but somehow I managed to step out of the network range. The tech tried to say that somehow, service must have dropped while I sat there. But he still had no explanation for why it shouldn't have just quietly and automatically reconnected itself to EDGE.

There are "lots and lots" of threads on this. It is a known 8700 issue. Do a search on "8700 network issue" and you will see what I mean.
