Bricked Iphone Help

My girlfriend bought a unlocked Iphone 3gs, used it for a month, decided it was to slow, and went back to her old phone instead. The problem is she did a reset on it and now it's stuck on the apple screen. I can get it to hook up to itunes by doing the hold this and spin in circles while chanting jobs, jobs, jobs technique but after it finishes with the reset I get a error 1015 message. A little research tells me it's because there is a unapproved something on the phone. Any Idea how to fix this? Is it something that someone would fix for a few $$$$?

Thanks

turn it on and attach it to a computer and open iTunes. Press and hold the power AND the home buttons for 10 seconds. Release the power button (only pressing home). Continue pressing home until iTunes says it sees a device in recovery mode, then release the button. This places the device in DFU mode and should allow you to push a fresh image from Apple onto the device.

I can get it to do that. However when its 99% done I get a error 1015 message. That's where I get lost.

the 1015 error is something to do with not being able to communicate with the apple servers if memory serves, if you're behind a router, try putting yourself in the DMZ on the router and see if it clears the issue....

(sorry, old thread but, good info to add to this in case future users run into a similar problem)
