There is a difference between "factory unlocked" and "unlocked."

You can jailbreak (which you have to do in order to unlock) an iPhone yourself, but every single time Apple updates the software, you're either going to have to do the whole process again or wait until someone comes up with a jailbreak/unlock utility. Which can sometimes take weeks.

If it is possible to get one, and if unlocked is your main objective, a factory unlocked iPhone is the way to go. Jailbreaking = very overrated, but unlocked=awesome, and a factory unlocked phone will always remain unlocked.

But to answer your question, if you jailbroke an iPhone you would still be able to use the App Store as normal.
