    So right now your issue is getting it to restore so you can use it, not unlocked and jailbroken right? Have you tried DFU mode and just restore on the laptop?
    In case you it them here' s how... and DFU mode should give you a black screen.
    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    iTunes should recognize it if it were in DFU mode. Try different USB port or cord.

    it recognizes it but after it does the restore thing it sends me back to the connect to itunes screen. when i jailbreak it with redsn0w it turns white then shows updating the hd screen then then pineapple screen for like 10 min then returns right back to the connect to itunes. anything i do it sends me back to the connect to itunes screen. ill try it again right now on my girlfriends laptop cause for some reason my comp wont let me run itunes.ugh!
    lol

    day later still no success. should i just buy a new phone? or destroy this one?

    If it will not restore in iTunes correctly make sure your using the correct .ipsw for the firmware the phone is on. Here's a link in case you need it.

    If you update to 9.0 and do a restore to 3.1 you may not be able to jailbreak your phone (no jailbreak for windows on 3.1 yet) and unlocking it if you have a need will maybe never happen cause it also updates the baseband.

    wow it worked. i cant believe it....all along it was the firmware....i always mess up mundane stuff like that. it looks odd. i havent seen it this new since i jailbroke it the first time .....thank you for all the help. so i cant jailbreak it until dev team releases the jailbreak for 3.1 right?
