I guess you mean 3.1.3 as that build number 7e18 you gave is 3.1.3
It is not possible to jailbreak or unlock a 3.1.3 3GS right now
I seriously would not recommend you try and load the 4.0 beta, this is very unstable and designed for developers only. The key feature - multitasking does not work until developers update their apps for it. These updated apps will not be released until just before 4.0 exits beta in late June or July.
You also will have a harder time jailbreaking if you load the 4.0 beta.
If you really want to try the 4.0 beta, look in the flea market subforum, people are offering beta registration in there. Again - this is not for newbies so I highly recommend you don't bother with it.
The best recommendation is to backup your 3.1.3 SHSH (both with Cydia and locally) this gives you the best preparation for a jailbreak when one is eventually released for 3.1.3 or 4.0
