The 3G can be upgraded to iOS4 but not iOS5. There are only a few benefits to updating a 3G to iOS4. IMO, they are not worth it... your 3G will likely run slower. See this... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4204
If you still want to update to iOS4, make sure you have the latest version of iTune installed, connect your 3G and press Update.

Yeah I figured that out but the latest version of iTunes has been installed already and when I plugged in my 3G and clicked update, it wouldn't allow it.
I was told that it would be better to keep it as iOS 3.1.3 so I guess you're right when you say it isn't worth it. I guess now I just would like to know what is wrong with it in the first place.

it wouldn't allow it.
Please clarify. Has your iPhone ever been 'modified'?

I mean that after it would extrat the software, a message would pop up saying that it "couldn't be restored and the device wasn't eligible for the requested build." Those words exactly.
I wouldn't necessarily know if it has been modified. My other phone broke so I switched my SIM card to my cousin's old iPhone 3G - the one I am currently using. I am not sure if she modified it while she had it or not.

This indicates your 3G may have been 'modified, i.e. jailbroken. This has been reported.. search this forum and Google for more info. Use these terms "device isn't eligible for the requested build".
