How to fix some mysterious problems.

hi, I have an iPhone 4s, running 6.0.1, firmware 3.0.04 . I am relying on a rebel sim thing for the unlock, and as far as I understand if I upgrade the os my baseband will be updated, also there is no hacktivate for iPhone 4s at the moment, unfortunately.... My question is: can I make the jailbreak on my current device without losing any data / settings? I mean, is it as easy as plug the phone, do the jailbreak, get it done, and that's it? Or will I need to reinstall OS, and then the activation screen will appear and then I will have access to a newly jailbroken device? Thanks.
