    should you uninstall any apps on your phone before you jailbreak and then redownload them ? because facebook / aim and some other apps i had on before i jailbroke .. didnt work afterwards .. it would open then go right back to the home screen

    When jailbreaking the best way to avoid any problems is to do a fresh restore on your phone, and then do the jailbreak, and make sure to set up the device as a new phone, don't restore from a backup.

    Yes, that will work just fine. Are you going to use Redsn0w?

    Most likely. Restoring ensures you have the cleanest phone possible to work with. Good luck! Hope everything works out fine! :D
