you have your 3.1.3 SHSH on file and have edited your hosts file to redirect iTunes to the Cydia servers right?

Apple restricts restores on the most recent idevices (3gs & above) by only allowing the current official FW to be restored.
SHSH blobs are the signature from apple for a FW (e.g. 3.1.2) that was saved while 3.1.2 was being signed. This allows you to downgrade(EDIT: or restore) to said FW.
Read here for more info.
SHSH's are unique to each iPhone, so you cannot use someone elses.
You cannot get SHSH blobs for a FW if Apple have stopped signing for it.
Apple is now only signing for 4.0
Cydia gives an option to 'Make my life easier' and, if you said yes, proceeded to save, and continue saving, SHSH blobs for each FW as it was released.

Just want to let you know that im not downgrading from 4.0 to 3.1.3. This phone already has firmware 3.1.3 or lower. Can you tell me which itunes to use to restore to 3.1.3?

If you don't already have SHSH blobs for 3.1.3 you cannot restore to 3.1.3 because apple have stopped signing that FW version.... any clearer?

When you want to restore the phone, the iTune needs to verify your 3GS and only allow you to restore to the latest FW. Basically, Steve says you MUST use the 4.0.

You must activate it first using an official SIM, then JB using spirit

You need to have AT&T sim to get out from that screen.
