    so here's the situation, i upgraded to ios4, which worked great. but then i switched providers and the new provider needs a jailbroken phone (telus) so i tried to do that. i hit one step in one of the jailbreaking apps that said to restore, so i tried. then i got the 1015 error, and now iphone just says "itunes" with the USB cable, and when i try and restore, i get the 1015 error.

    so i'm stuck in a loop. help please?!

    Plug the iphone cable into your computer - not into the iphone.
    Hold the power and home button and as soon as it shuts off - plug the iphone into your computer.
    It should let iTunes recognize it and you can restore it.

    unfortunately that doesn't work.

    i followed those steps, but when itunes tries to restore it, i get error1015 again.

    Do you have your SHSH number?
    If you do - when you hit restore, select the proper back-up file;

    Even if you jailbreak, you can't unlock to use a different provider.

    i finally managed to restore ios4 - so i guess i'll wait a few days until someone unlocks the OS + baseband... then jailbreak so i can use the SIM from my new provider.
