Old, it seems, 4th and 5th digit indicate that it is from Week 10. (mine is too )

that is week 10 of 2010...new bootrom most likely...3gs wasn't released until mid 2009...google "how to determine iPhone iBoot" and determine that way as that is the only way to know for sure
359.3 = old 359.3.2= new

Week ten since release, not week ten of any year. I have a similar serial number.. checked iBoot, and it is 359.3. Sadly, it was vanilla 3.1.3 so no JB for me.

that is because yours is a refurb...the 0 means 2010 if it was a 9 then that would be 2009....the 3rd number is year, 4th and 5th are week...it has nothing to do with "weeks since release"

Best way to check is to go to apple warranty web page and once you put in your serial number it will prompt you the expiry date of your warranty .. so you can do the math here )
yes its long but its the most surest way my friends ..

Yes, judging by the serial number, your phone has the old bootrom (I still think everyone should check the iBoot version to be sure) and you're correct, once you're on 3.1.3, it doesn't matter which bootrom you have. The only chance you have to jailbreak is if you have your 3.1.2 (or lower) SHSH files stored and downgrade using those.
