    Since you have the iPad baseband on your iPhone you're going to need a custom firmware to restore.

    put it in DFU and restore it to 3.1.3. You will receive a 1015 error, then use tiny umbrella to kick it out of recovery. You iphone will boot up normally to emergency screen.

    You will then jailbreak it and then unlock with ultrasn0w.

    can't restore. i downloaded a 3.1 ipsw file but after i select it and click restore, it says that the file is corrupt, redisconnect and try again.... the iphone is now in an infinite recovery mode (plug in to the itunes logo). what do i do now?? i know its bothersome but i'm really frustrated....

    hmm - something similar happened to me.

    sometimes trying it from another computer can help
