    i am getting this error whenever i try to use data (other then wi-fi). i am on sprit and have spent hours on the phone, they ended up saying i have to go to an apple store to get it fixed. i could do this but the closest apple store is over a hour away and i do not really want to drive that far if someone here can fix it! any ideas would be great!

    I guess you could try:

    Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

    You'll have to set up your WiFi again (if you use it), but it might work.

    You don't have any iOS beta software software on there do you?

    i have done that but it has not worked. is there any way to restore without downloading the 800+ mb software? i updated it through the phone not my macbook so it has to re-download everything and that will take 2 hours on my slow internet

    ----------

    i have used it in the past but not now, stock 5.1

    I did a restore and that has worked for the past week but now it's saying that again. However this time the data still works (for now)
