How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi. My iphone 3gs used to have iOS 4.1.1. I stupidly reset the phone and can now just view a screen to do emergency calls.

From here, I thought Its best to download and install iOS 5.1.1. My phone is locked too. English. How can I install this firmware and make it so I can use this phone with any mobile telephone operator?

Oh.. I am not downgrading in case you guys are wondering! I want to fresh install, upgrade. Thanks.
