    How did you know it was on 3.1.3 and why is it on recovery mode now?
    You're sure you dont just need to activate it with any AT&T simcard?

    I bought it from Ebay and the guy told me he was using it with 3.1.3.

    It came and had Itunes sign with USB and now it is in recovery mode.

    Go to: iclarified.com >Tutorials >iPhone >Jailbreak

    their tutorials are very detailed maybe it can help you!

    I dont know why the Phone would be on recovery mode when you recieved it, maybe the guy mess something up with it and didnt know what to do so he sold it? If thats the case, report him to paypal (if you actually paid him with paypal) I heard paypal almost always help the buyer and ***** the Seller, so you can get your money back after you send the phone back to him or whatever...

    Not sure if its restored to 3.1.3 and just not activated or if the seller was on 3.1.3 and did the erase all data and settings and now its in recovery mode and needs a restore.
    If its the 2nd all you can do is restore to official 4.0 and just sit back and wait for a new JB.

    There is already an official unlock.
    You just need a new JB to acess that official unlock though.

    Please explain further. I upgraded from 3.13 and it was jail broken with Spirit. Is it true that I cannot jailbreak because of this? I need my mywi!

    As Latinist said earlier , it's not that sprit stops a 4.0 Custom FW; it just doesn't enable it .
    To restore to a pwned 4.0 you must already be pwned. Sprit can't do it.
