    I believe it'll have an MB. Anyways, go to Settings > General > About, then check the model number.

    Lol no, it'll start with MC. Serial number and model number are 2 very different things.

    Oh, so if my serial number is 784525MC3NQ than I have a MC serial number? And I should not attempt to jailbreak my iphone 3g 3.1.3?

    no! 784525MC3NQ is your serial number, then what b-mac 39 mean by MC is that is the first 2 number of your model. like for example my iPhone 3gS model number starts off with MC136LL (MODEL #), serial number is 85013XXXXXQ

    Here's a simpler version of what has been said:

    Go to Settings, then general, then about, look for "model number" tell us what it says.
