wifi on the go - necessary?

Hello friendly forum,

Just 17 days to my icelandic vacation!

I'm hoping to drive around quite a bit during my 9 day stay in iceland - the roaming rates for 3g on sprint (an american service) are way too high, so i was wondering if getting a wifi-on-the-go device would be useful/necessary.

what are some cost-effective options to be connected while in iceland? are there any travel phones that i can purchase to make calls within iceland or should i use my regular phone instead?

I have sprint, I called them and had text and phone only, my bill was only $7 for the calls we made. There are plenty of hot spots so I used the open systems for free.

I have a iphone but for travel my husband has cheap international phone through sprint since his regular phone will not work in Europe. Before we go we call sprint and have it turned on.
