As no-one has reported problems using theirs in Peru, I will get one.
Mine has been a life saver multiple times, as I have Google Voice, so I can text the US and email when connected with 3G for free. One thing though, when downloading books via 3G, they cost $2 more than whatever listed price. Newspapers are like $5 more a month, and there is an upcharge for transfering pdf's as well. If you use WiFi to get the books, there isn't an upcharge however. And there are plenty of places to get free WiFi.
I got mine at Christmas from the US, and it came with a 100-240V 50-60 Hz compatible adapter.
