newcomer iphone 3g 2.2.1(5h11)
bought phone in america i.5 years ago and they unlocked it for me. i haven't updated the software since i was there hence why its still 2.2.1.......using a vodafone ireland sim. would like to update even whatever level is possible..as i can't get some of the newer apps.....
i don't have the usa sim(at&t) so do i need to know what i need.
i have 2 laptops so i can download an older itunes on the old laptop if necessary. or can i download older update of iphone on current itunes
any help be great.

Second step use pwnagetool to generate a custom IPSW for 4.0 or 3.1.3 (I recommend you use 3.1.3) and restore that custom IPSW via iTunes. Be sure to confirm that the setting to NOT update the baseband is set when making the pwnagetool custom IPSW

Instructions for all these procedures can be found in many threads here on hackint0sh. iClarified also has step by step guides for these tasks.
Don't use sn0wbreeze - find/borrow a mac.
Don't restore directly to 4.1 - you will lose unlock (probably for a very long time)
4.0 is very slow on 3G iPhone, 4.1 is better but no safe and official way to go to 4.1 for a 3G that doesn't destroy your chances of jailbreak.
Again, sn0wbreeze is not a 100% safe or officially recommended solution - please avoid it.
There will be an update to pwnagetool that allows safely going to 4.1 on your 3G - it will arrive soon (maybe next week). Until then, only go as far as 3.1.3 (but try as hard as you can to keep your baseband from being updated past the necessary update to iOS 3.0 baseband 4.26.08 (this is why I recommend you restore to 3.0 using original apple IPSW)
