Maybe it’s a user error.

Well, I think the short answer to your question is that the iPod Touch / iPhone use wireless networks to find your position. Not EDGE, so if you aren’t connected to a wireless network, or an unsupported wireless network then your phone won’t be able to find your position.

Well, I’m not completely sure about this. Although I’ve gotten the same error as you before, but then it’s gone away. But that’s my 2 cents / guess.
