Hello Pittsburgh! I lived there for 3 years! Dreadful city. :-)
Now, your lens must have a problem with the guide rails/pins. If you dropped it or bumped it, you might have broken/damaged those guide rails. Another reason might be sand/grit in the zoom mechanism.
You may try stripping the lens slowly and see if you can identify the problem. Most lenses are easy to disassemble, you start from the rear mount area, take off screws, and parts one by one, and be organized (i.e., take photos for every step and don't mix the screws).

something sounds strange about this. aperture 00 is an invalid aperture value. stands to reason if that is the case the camera would complain about it. via error code. being that its only six mos. old i would give canon a ring.

Error code 99 means the lens is not communicating properly .
You need to remove the lens and clean it . Place it properly . If it is not placed properly you will receive this error .

I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...

IF the lens has a macro switch that is fixed to the
lens by two screws it is a old type lens and will not
work on digitel and it can not be upgraded
