    Lol, I think that your only chance is to restore it...
    It happened to my sister she put it in DFU mode then restored it.

    But I am not sure if there is another way other than that.

    Hold home button + power button for 10 seconds
    Keep ur hand on the home button and let go of the power button.

    But ur unlock might be gone....

    don't do an official restore to 3.1.3 because u will lose your unlock...If u have a mac create a custom 3.1.2 ipsw and restore to that...if u have a pc find and download a custom 3.1.2 iosw created with pwnagetool and restore to that...you will preserve your current baseband and will be able to unlock it again...just make sure that the ipsw (either one u create or download) IS ACTIVATED

    i thought all you have to do is connect your iphone to the computer it is synced to in order to bypass the password

    in iTunes use shift+restore (pc) or option+restore (mac) and u will be good to go

    @lifeorde4th

    not sure but if so that would much easier than a restore...let's hope that's all that has to be done

    You may as well move up to 3.1.2, download it here
    Put the phone in DFU mode then restore to the 3.1.2 firmware you downloaded.
    I would suggest using blackra1n for the jailbreak and blacksn0w for the unlock, (the easiest by far) and you should be good to go.

    Use blacksn0w RC2 for unlocking. The original can cause problems.

    You're right, my bad. I was thinking if he upgraded to stock 3.1.2 as blkcadi suggested, but as you said, it's better to use a custom firmware and then use ultrasn0w for unlocking.
