I have also been having this problem for 2 to 3 weeks. Before I make a call, the display will say EDGE, then when the call drops, the display will say GPRS/GSM or still says EDGE. Then you get that tone, and a call fail display will appear.
Here is what I have found for me. During the daytime, I do not really have this problem (where I work, I do not get a signal in our warehouse). It appears to happen 8 PM PST to midnight. Durning these hours, the call can last from 2 minutes to couple of hours. I have called Cingular, and they show no problem areas in the west coast. They have recommended replacing the device, but last resort.
I started thinking on when this started happening, the only thing I did was to install the Software For BlackBerry 8700c(TM) BlackBerry Handheld Software v188.8.131.52 from Blackberry's website.
Has anyone else maybe had the same issue? Or am I way off base?
