    You can downgrade a 3G to any firmware, they do not use the SHSH checks.

    Download the firmware from iClarified. Open iTunes, shift-restore, point it at the old firmware. When it completes and errors out (expected behavior), run Firmware Umbrella and click 'Kick device out of recovery mode'.

    That's it.

    Depends on what firmware revision you've restored to, but yea, the tools exist to do so and are documented all around. Take a look in the spot specifically for the model / firmware you're using and you'll see. Here's a quick reference:

    3.1.2: redsn0w / blackra1n for jailbreak, ultrasn0w for unlock
    3.1.3: Spirit for jailbreak (need legit AT&T SIM), ultrasn0w for unlock, Spirit2Pwn for pwned bootloader
    4.0: redsn0w 0.95b5-5 for jailbreak, ultrasn0w for unlock

    Poke around and you'll find tutorials for these if you need them -- iClarified is a pretty reliable source for tutorials on what you'd need to do.

    Since you've got a 3G, it's pretty easy, nothing too crazy.

    O2 in the UK will properly unlock the iPhone - for free if you have fulfilled your contract. If you are still on contract - then you should contact o2 to find out how much the unlock will cost.

    Otherwise you can use ultrasn0w 0.9.3 - but you need to be careful about upgrades.

    I've downgraded to 3.1.3 & created a 'custom ipsw' file with Cydia integrated.

    Installed ultrasn0w through Cydia & activated all the network carriers.

    Fantastic!

    I will remember not to update via Itunes.

    Thanks to all.
