    Help pls.
    I'm trying to restore my phone ( via iTunes ), however after several tries, same error message occurred. I checked on the lists of Error & Advanced Steps ( http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275 ), said error ( -1 ) is not on the lists.

    Afaik, thats a busted radio chip. Same thing with my friends 3gs. He initially got his working but wifi and cell were dead. Now it wont even restore and would give that error no matter what machine. We've tried it on 6 macs and 2win boxes
