I live in Canada and i will be going to New York for about a week and i want to bring my phone. I don't plan on calling or messaging people, i just want it so i'll be able to take pictures for memories and for updating social networks USING THEIR WI-FI. is there any way i can do so without getting charged extra?
P.S i have the iphone 4

Hi Krystal,

The very safest way is to take your SIM card out of your iPhone and visit NY without it :) You will still be able to use WiFi all over the place and you'll be CERTAIN not to induce any charges :)
You could also put the phone on airplane mode, but any mistake (accidentally switching it back on) and you might still be charged... taking it out is the safest :D

PS if you DO want to use your phone, there are some US addons too, if you are interested :)
