So you'll want to do some research first and be prepared to fiddle for a little bit.

That said it was a huge money saver for me as I travelled europe for about 6 weeks this sumer, while most of the hotels had wifi there was 10 days on a cruise where it was super pricey (and SLOW). Since I had unlimited international roaming (no longer offered) I didn't worry about data. Now when I travel domestically I don't worry too much about having WiFi (though I don't use it unless I really need to as I'm worried about getting shut off).
That is why I haven't upgraded my 3gs to iOS4.2. That said, I think the current tethered jailbreak for iOS4 allows your phone to reboot without a computer, but you can't access the alternate apps. They appeared as just gray bland icons.
