The biggest benefit is the savings on your bill. More and more often cellular networks are limiting the amount of data transfers allowed each month. Going over could mean additional charges. Using your phone's wireless connection will allow you to connect to the internet without using up those valuable bits of data transfer. You may also want to connect to a wireless network if you find yourself in an area where data roaming charges may apply. You may also find that wireless data transfer is faster, but results may vary.

On the down side is the possibility of using up your battery power faster. This is dependent on the wireless signal strength. You will also want to be careful of what information you send over the wireless connection because it may not be encrypted.
