    1) No it's not. It's "lagging" because you installed WinterBoard and/or a lot of other software that either depends on MobileSubstrate or runs in the background.

    2) AT&T are full of it (big surprise, I know.) Reflashing won't brick your phone at all -- it will simply reset it to factory settings; after the restore it will be locked, just like it was when you bought it.

    Yes, all you need to do is go through itunes and restore to factory settings. It will just delete everything on your phone and bring it back to how you first got it with upgraded firmware.

    I've done this several times with no problems.
