My SO will be traveling to the US (from Canada) for six weeks, starting this weekend. Help us figure out an iPhone solution so we can stay in touch.

SO will be biking down the west coast for the next six weeks. He's looking for a way to use his iPhone 4 (currently with Rogers) without paying outrageous data roaming fees.
Do US carriers offer prepaid data service for the iPhone? Voice service is not crucial here, as he will mostly be "checking in" on his phone for safety.
We understand that we will probably need to unlock and/or jailbreak his phone.
There are a few questions about this all over the web, but they mostly date from 2009 and 2010.
