    Read the very first (sticky) post in this section of the forum. All will be clear.

    Unlock= Use with another service besides ATT.
    Jailbreak= New software
    If you have to ask though you may not want to do it because it can mess up your device!

    thanks for thinking your right though and letting me prove you wrong

    Jailbreaking is gaining root acess to the iPhone, and being able to install Apps you cannot find in the App Store, as well as other cool mods/hacks (like themes). Unlocking is bing able to use the iPhone on any GSM Network (Like T-Mobile). The main advantage of Jailbreaking is Cydia, which is an open source alternative to the App Store.
