I took a 3g iPhone in on trade with a 1015 error code. Is there any way to overcome it?
it's been rooted or Jailbroken you will not get help here. via rules of the site google what you asked it can be fixed!
This means it was previously hacked, altering the modem baseband. The phone can NEVER be restored or updated to a stock iOS again. "Alternative solutions" can't be discussed here.
