    Thank you so much
    You can upgrade the 3g to firmware 3.1.3 through itunes. The 3GS will require firmware signing and hence unless you have SHSH saved on cydia you need to use a custom IPSW to upgrade. WIth a PC your only option is a custom firmware with Snowbreeze to take it to 4.1 and not upgrade the baseband.

    If you chose too you can also upgrade the 3G to 4.1 with Snowbreeze but you will find the 3g runs better on 3.1.3.

    Go to Iclarify and look at the various tutorials for these options.

    Ultrasn0w to unlock both devices.

    The 3G just shift+restore to a stock 3.1.3 ipsw, like ^ said, it runs better than 4.1 on a 3G.

    The 3GS, you'll need to jailbreak it on the firmware it is on first. Then you'll use Sn0wbreeze to create a 4.1 custom firmware and shift+restore to it.

    You can Google instructions. But it's pretty easy and straightforward. Just get Sn0wbreeze from ih8sn0w.com and follow the directions it gives you. You'll need a stock 4.1 ipsw you can get from felixbruns.de.

    Edit: for the 3G you can use Redsn0w 0.9.4 to jb. Just download a stock 3.1.2 ipsw to use with Redsn0w after restoring to either 3.1.3 or 3.1.2. You'll need the 3.1.2 ipsw to use Redsn0w for either versions.

    You didn't select activate in Sn0wbreeze in expert mode. Build another custom firmware in expert mode and select activate, then restore to it again.
