With which jailbreak? There are several. I suggest you read a bit before jailbreaking, but it's a pretty safe process. All iPhones from the 3G onwards have always been restorable back to factory clean.

Just run greenpoison and if it doesn't go through do a hard reset and it should boot up normally, then you just try again. I haven't heard of anyone bricking their phone running greenpoison. Done my 3GS and my friends iPhone 4, both JBed successfully.

It wont work on the 3G but the other two will be fine, use another tool for that, and you will need the internet. Would of been interesting to know your unlock/service needs for all 3 iphones before you go and lock them out with an update.
