Check the cellular antenna connector near the bottom...it's hard to set into place properly.

Yes I referring to that connector. As I stated, it can be hard to get that one fully seated. However, you may want to inspect the board in that area, it's connectors, and the antenna itself to ensure it isnt ripped.

update, this seems to be an ios 6 bug, as every iphone 4 or 4s i know disconnect the battry on does this, and ive found that plugging it into itunes after seems to fix this error.
just thought i would post my findings for others. :-)

Is the iPhone unlocked/Jailbroken? What service provider do you have currently? When was the last time you did have service?
