I would call your data provider for specific instructions before you go just to make sure.
That is true Matt. Turn off the 3G and activate the WIFI. You can also get Vonage for I-Phone $25.00 per month to make calls via wifi FOR CALLING BACK HOME. You can even call a fixed line in Peru without charge. I turn off my 3g on my Iphone while in Peru, buy me a cheap local cellphone and use my vonage-iphone to call back home (US).
Oltursa buses (first class buses in Peru) have wifi and they also have IPADs. The wifi is not that dependable in remote areas and then it depends on where you are traveling:http://www.oltursa.com.pe/
