There's wifi but when I'm in class there is no Wifi and when I'm on the go I always have 3G connection but it's not even put into use since 5.1 doesn't have APN settings for my carrier.

i didnt try it myself, i dont have an iphone 4s either. but i guess if you follow it step by step it probably works. before doing so i would make a recovery copy in itunes so that if something goes wrong you can always set it back.

I was big into jailbreaking and such for most of 4.0+ with my 3Gs and then my 4 for awhile.

The first JB I ever completed was using Red Sn0w, but every JB after I used sn0wbreeze. Thing about sn0w breeze is that it makes a custom .IPSW and you have to reinstall the iOS every time, whereas Red sn0w just hacks your current installation and you don't lose anything.

As for your question, most Jailbreaks save your baseband so that you can always revert to a previous iOS should you chose.

I think that should answer your question.

I'm pretty sure Red Sn0w and Sn0wbreeze preserve your baseband so I don't think you should have anything to worry about.

Personally, I don't jailbreak anymore. I was able to get the iOS 5 beta when it was first released on June 6 of last year. Being a beta, jailbreaking was very unstable, and the success rate was very minimal. However, my main reason for JB was for custom text tones. Now that iOS 5 allows that, I have little desire to JB.
