How can I use my smart phone as a camera in the US and not pay data/mobile network charges?

I live in Canada. Next week, I am going to the US. I want to be able to use my smart phone as a camera. If it is possible to use my phone with free Wifi (like at Starbucks) to do downloads/uploads of email and so on, that would be great. But I am primarily interested in using my phone as a camera.
I don't want to be stuck paying network fees or anything like that. I do not want a huge roaming bill.
I was thinking I could put the phone in airplane mode, perhaps, and make sure all connections were turned off.
My friend told me that even if I do that, some data will get through and I'll be paying $1 a minute.
I have an HTC Incredible, if that info helps.
