This error may indicate a hardware issue with your device. If the MAC address or the IMEI is the default value (00 499901 064000 0), this can also confirm a hardware issue, to find these go to settings, general & about.
If you can get an appointment in an Apple store they can try a "known good" network connection & connector and try to restore the phone for you but if not it looks like it may be a hardware issue within the phone. If your still withing your warrenty give Apple a ring they'll sort it for you.
Press and hold the power and home button.....continue holding after the device powers on and until you see it resetting. at this point release the power button and continue to hold the home key....after the device has finished, you may try the restore again....more than likely the file you are trying to restore it with is corrupted..........if your device is not working now, then it should after the reset sequence....
Marc - a new IPhone should come with a one year warranty -unless you purchased from someone and not from a store- Apple should look at the problem and replace it since your problem looks like it is hardware. Good luck!
Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.
http://techierambles.blogspot.com/2009/09/restore-iphone-with-error-13-or-1611-in.html To enter DFU mode: 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer 2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off 3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly 4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in 5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings
