    Unlocking refers to: The unlocking of the phones babseband. This allows you to use a sim from another carrier, if your phone is locked to AT&T. You don't need this if you plan to use your current service provider.

    Jailbreaking refers to: Gaining root (administrator) access to your phones operating system, and associated files. This allows you to install apps from cydia. I think this is what you're after.

    There's only a tethered jailbreak for your device and firmware. So everytime you switch your phone off, you need to re-boot with redsnow. Not advisable if your new to this. Hope this helps. Thank you, and have a safe an happy holiday
