    If you update to 2.2.1 it will remain unlocked & stay activated but lose the jailbreak and all 3rd party apps.

    If you restore it will still remain unlocked but you will need to activate again with Quickpwn or pwnagetool & this will also jailbreak & reinstall Cydia/Installer at the same time.

    "update" in iTunes will retains all your settings/apps. Unlock remains as long as baseband does not change. You will loose the jailbreak. You will loose activation if not on official carrier.

    "restore" pretty much wipe your phone. You will looseJailbreak and settings/apps. You will loose activation if not on official carrier. Unlock remains as long as baseband does not change.
