Thank you regarding the search. That is what I have been doing. Now you said about my SHSH files on cydias server...I have seen that posted as well when i have searched...I believe that would mean I would have to have Cydia still on my iphone in order to get this info?

you can get the 3.1.2 software if you download off of bittorrent. save it to your computer then when its finished dowloading, open itunes and hit the restore button and shift at the same time. then search for your 3.1.2 software and continue and you should see it restore back to the 3.1.2 and then jb...

Norcal, listen to big9. Even if you download the 3.1.2 firmware, while iTunes is installing it, it will send out a request to Apple's servers to 'verify' the firmware. This is called "signing". Apple has publically stated that they are not currently signing ANY older firmwares that the current one, which is 3.1.3.
I don't know what the hell the guys earlier in this thread are telling you, as they obviously don't have a clue.
If you previously had Cydia on your iPhone, and if you had previously pressed the button in Cydia called "Make my life easier", then yes, you can downgrade back to 3.1.2. But it's not a "quick fix", or a simple thing.
Your baseband has STILL been upgraded, and that means that you can't be unlocked yet. Jailbroken, yes. Unlocked, no.
