Bluetooth Interference! Help!

I would appreciate anyone's help with the following issue;
Last December I bought a Motorola V3 RaZr and paired it with a Jabra BT250V blue tooth headset. The two paired wonderfully and the freedom to walk around talking without having to use one hand to hold the phone up to my ear is AWESOME!
BUTperiodically the Bluetooth goes out. I hear a beep, look down at the phone and a message appears on the display stating, Bluetooth signal weak. Switch to handset? and the person on the other end says, Are you there? and all the while I can hear them fine. This lasts for about 30 seconds and then the person can hear me again (provided they havent hung up on me in the meantime).
Now, after making sure both the Bluetooth headset and phone are FULLY charged and within 3 feet of each other the phone is on my belt and the headset in my ear and NO Im not taller than 30 feet ha ha I cant find any reason why this happens.
HOWEVER, I have noticed that the only two places this happens are (A) in my home and (B) at work. So I got to thinking what could cause interference? And viola, I think I have the reason as to why the Bluetooth goes out. I strongly believe that the 802.11b/g
wireless network Im using at home and also what is used at work are causing the problem.
Ive read several articles on how Bluetooth can cause interference with wireless networks, but I havent seen anything on wireless networks interfering with Bluetooth. I did read one reviewer rating the Jabra headset and his review described some sort of reverse mute where you can hear the person but they cant hear you which sounds VERY much like my problem.
Can wireless networks interfere with Bluetooth? Is there anything I can do about it?
