Should i use Expert mode or simble mode ?

Either. Just make sure you create "activated" firmware. It should ask you if you're using an AT&T or other provider.

Jailbreakin that is not possible at the moment

did you put it in DFU using the iH8sn0w iReb program? Sometimes it will give you an error, but the process will work anyway. I'd also make sure you are using a good, Apple original firmware IPSW file downloaded from the Downloads section of MMI (here).
also, run the f0recast program from iH8sn0w too to make sure you know what the system specs are. write back, well help you.

thehumble1, i had DFU on, and then i used the iH8sn0w and then it gave an error, but the screen dident turn any color, and nothing happend, and it says it should turn white, but i allso have 3.1.3, and the program says it works for 3.1.2 only, so i tryed to download a program AutoSHSH 3.1.3/3.2, and i used it, and it created an .SHSH file, wich just got made on the desktop, so then it still was in DFU mode, then i opned itunes, and i tryed to Shift-click on restore.
I took the file that i created myself with Snowbreeze, (i took activate so it should be right, but the IPSW, i used to "hack" was one from iclarified.com or something
I really dont know whats going wrong, could i get your MSN or something so we could talk Thehumble1
and btw, i have tryed to use f0recast, but it just said waiting for idevise,
edit again, :b should i have my own simcard in, or should i just take it out and have nothing in ? :b -- tryed up there with nothing in
edit again, again got f0recast to work, it says this
jailbreakable only if shsh is saved
unlockable ? NO
tethered ? maybe - depends if refurb

it shouldn't matter if your sim card is in or not when you are doing the process. I usually take it out so I don't try to check anything until it's done.
I don't like the fact that f0recast can't find your phone, but I had one that did the same thing and it came back too.
I have a few suggestions. First i've had an issue with iReb that sounds similar. If you unplug your iPhone and plug it back in, or power cycle it, the white screen sometimes comes on because the iReb program told the phone to go to the white screen mode, but didn't get a chance to tell it to reboot before it crashed. Just a thought.
I'm not on MSN or anything and in and out of the office, so I can't do a chat right now. I'll keep checking in though.
ahh, there you go. The 6.4 bootloader will keep you from unlocking it for sure and the fact that you are trying to get a shsh. At least you know where to start. You need to look for threads about people jailbreaking the 6.4 bootloader with 5.12.1 on the 3GS, since there are a lot of different 3GS instances out there, you need to make sure that the instructions you are following are for people with the same bootloader and baseband.
also, you didn't mention what network you want to get it working on. you said 3 mobile? It's also best to give a lot more detail in your initial post. Where are you? what network do you want to use? where did you get the phone, what is the first 5 digits of the serial number? anything else will help a lot too, like what you've tried so far and what guides you are using to do learn how to do it.

If the phone is from Greece, you'll have to import a sim (prepaid typically works) from the official carrier in that country to bypass activation. There are two iPhone carriers currently in Greece, Vodafone and Cosmote. My gut says Vodafone was the carrier, but you never know. Apple told me my phone's provider by backtracing the serial number and giving me its history, I suggest you give them a call and give them your serial
