Is it jailbroken? If so, open cydia and see what is listed for SHSH at the top of the screen. Those will be the iOS versions you can restore to other than the current (6.1 now).

Is it currently jailbroken? You have cydia? Open cydia top part in green and tell us what shsh you have saved. Also look in settings/general/about and tell us the modem firmware.

To start, you should downgrade the baseband (modem firmware) using redsn0w.

what is SHSH blobs

If you have the SHSH blobs, you can upgrade to iOS 5 using those(see the FAQs for a How-To). If you need an unlock, create a custom IPSW in redsn0w (Extras->Custom IPSW), and restore to that (again, look in the FAQs for how). I suggest you upgrade to iOS 6.1, which is the latest version. Just put your iPhone in DFU mode, and then restore using iTunes, after taking a backup.
