I know there are ways to update the iPhone to newer versions, but is there away that takes only a couple steps? (I'm smart, but I'm blonde so who knows what will happen to my phone if I have to do anything than download a program)

Don't you just plug it into your computer -open iTunes and press the update button?

Or am I being blonde too?
lol... but you seem to be blonde too since agent0064life said "is there an idiot proof way to update UNLOCKED phones yet?" and by just updating you will brick your phone!

you have revirginize your phone and then update... after that you have to jailbreak + unlock.. it's easy

go to http://i.unlock.no look at the steps of reverginizing the baseband, bypass acitivation, and unlocking.. if you have he 1.1.1 software downloaded it won't take you more than 15 mins to finish everything

04.01.13_g is version 1.1.1 you can't have 1.0.2 if your version is 04.01.13_g
and about the source button its in the installer application

It really depends on unlock method...

If you used iPhoneSIMFree (you know the method that costs) then it easy just follow the 1.1.2 jailbreak instructions if you're on 1.1.1. If you are on 1.0.2 use 1.7 iPhoneSIMFree and follow 1.1.1 upgrade instructions and then upgrade to 1.1.2 as above. Biggest issue here is to have modified lockdownd file to re-activate if not using ATT (or appropriate country supplier).
If you used AnySIM or similar and have a jailbroken phone then either follow the complex instructions or load i.unlock.no source and use the appropriate virginizer program and update route.
