After about 1/2 hour of speed tests (150k - 800kbps) and google satellite map downloads (all definitely faster), I switched back to "WCDMA Preferred". Guess what? After a few minutes, I was back on EDGE, even with a good signal. Switched back to "WCDMA Only", and 3G it remains.
I changed my setting to WCDMA only, and made sure that USA band was selected. Ever since then I have not had a switch to 3g and 3-4 bars consistently in my apartment when before, I had constant switches to edge. hmmm.
