    Well at this point listen to what everyone says then come to your conclusions you have 3 main options

    You need to ask questions BEFORE you continue

    It really depends if you need the carrier unlocked, all firmwares at this time are jailbreakable and unlockable but 4.1 is not unlockable unless you use a custom brewed firmware(not iTunes)

    Option 1
    Stay on 3.1.3 and Jailbreak and unlock with Spirit

    Option 2
    Update to 4.1 and Jailbreak only(no unlock) at greenpois0n.com or limera1n.com

    Option 3
    Create a custom brew of 4.1 so you can jailbreak and carrier unlock

    Please state what option you would like to take so we can advice you accordingly

    Please thank me on site if this info has helped
    Else ask questions

    I'd say use PwnageTool to jailbreak to 4.1 while maintaining your baseband and then use ultrasn0w to unlock.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    Option 3 might not be possible, if you have shsh for 3.1.2 then it definitely is possible

    Please ask questions so you don't get screw yourself over like so many other people have you have options but if you take the wrong option your screwed

    I believe he is saying a custom brew of 4.1, if you update to 4.1 through iTunes you will update your baseband and make it not possible for unlock

    I suppose I am referring to a custom brew. I've never heard it called that before. PwnageTool obviously creates a custom firmware .ipsw to restore your iPhone with.

    there are no shsh's for a 3G on 3.1.2, only 4.0 and above, you are thinking 3GS

    If you don't need iOS4-specific apps, stick with 3.1.x firmware. IMHO, it p1sses all over iOS4.x. And you will actually have a Battery Life
