If your only going to use Wifi then just put the phone in Airplane mode and enable Wifi. I did this for my trip through Europe and wasn't charged anything. It disables all signals coming in/out of the phone. Hope it helps

if you decide to put it into airplane mode, keep in mind that if you power off the phone and then back on, it will turn off the airplane mode. At least this used to be the case, might have been fixed since.

I just made a trip to CA last week. I went to AT&T and bought 1 pay as you go for my iphone. They have a $2/day, unlimited calling and texts (but no data for the iphone for some reason, only android has data), and another pay as you go for my ipad2, I used my cousins US credit card and it was $15 for 250mb (which I only used about 150mb) It was awesome having my ipad, it made it easier finding places to go.
If you go that route, and you want to make calls back home. Head to Vons, or whatever grocery chain there is.. you can buy a $5 calling card, that has ~461 minutes to call Canada.

This. NY is littered with free wifi zones. Tons of starbucks, McD's, parks, plaza's with free wifi. Whenver we have friends and family come in from Canada we get them to download whatsapp/viber, because you can communicate for free via wifi. Last I checked, there are no roaming charges in the US, the only time you get dinged is if the phone is actually used (call/text).
