    3g supports calls + internet at the same time, edge supports 1 at a time.

    Yes, I have 3g activated at all times pretty much. What'll happen is ill have 5 bars full 3g and ill call somebody or vice versa and the 3g icon disappears completely and i cant do anything but talk pretty much. Then when i hang up a circle appears for like 5 seconds then the 3g comes back up

    I would guess there's a local problem with your 3G service, and when you make a call the phone is falling back to GPRS.

    Yes, something is not right.
    Make sure you have the latest carrier update file installed also.
    Maybe do a hard reset also.
