Got this message on my Verizon Blackberry Tour in 1xev mode this morning trying to go on the internet.
The key thing here is that the letters in 1xev are lowercase, which means that the phone was possibly roaming into another carrier’s network where Verizon does not have a contract for Data services. Check out this KB article for more info on status indicators.
It’s interesting to note that I was not roaming at all. My phone was on my desk at home all night and then drove with me to work in the morning like usual. No roaming took place.
Oh well, all you have to do to get your connection back is take the battery out for 15 seconds and then put it back in. Problem solved for now.
