    YEP...got this same error when I was having some problems with my Pre's reception.

    Apparently this error comes from the Pre not being able to ping a tower to get the "connection" especially with EvDo. So there is two possibilities for this error:

    1) Data off
    2) Tower connection poor

    In my case, as I found out from the Sprint store much later, is that they were working on the tower near my house (which apparently I have only 1 and its 3 miles away) thus I wasnt getting a connection...so without WiFi I could not use data, and in a lot of cases could not make/receive calls. Now it all makes sense, but it took me 3 days, 2 doctors, hours with CS that didnt know about it, and a trip to my local Repair center to find this out.

    So my suggestion:

    1) Check to see if your data is on,
    2) Update PRL then Network Settings in the phone preferences,
    3) Call the Repair center closest to you (if there is a tower problem the local stores usually get an email about the issue)
    4) Hard reset your phone
    5) Doctor
    6) Sprint CS call / Tech Support
    7) Return

    Please follow the steps in that order for best results!
