    You can see if your carrier does IMEI unlocks or install the iPad baseband.
    If you decide on the iPad baseband, read all the warnings and consequences, it cannot be undone.

    You probably are on a tethered jailbreak
    What did you use to jailbreak ?
    Run Limera1n to untether

    I doubt iTunes will allow you to restore an 4S backup to a 3GS

    If it is not working correctly and not jailbroken, you need to restore it to stock
    Download the 4.1 IPSW from iPhoneWiki, use that to restore it to stock with iTunes, choose set up as new. Then test it.

    iClarified.com for a tutorial
