comment Is it possible to use HTC Desire C phone in Russia?
@AdityaSomani It may void the warranty, but as far as I know it is not illegal to do so in any country. It may be illegal to export unlocked phones in bulk for resale, though.

comment Are security rules different at European airports?
Since the TSA operates in the US, I would guess that the rules are different for every other country.

comment Non-EU citizen applying UK visa, return ticket from France, should I book a return from UK for UK visa appliation?
Your train ticket from London-Paris should be sufficient. You need to show how you plan to leave the UK, but you are not required to leave by air!

comment Why is it difficult/how to make it easier for Americans to understand Australian accents?
I live in the middle of New Hampshire, not exactly a huge tourist destination (at this time of year, anyway). I last spoke to an Australian in person four weeks ago. Maybe I just have a wider circle of friends...

comment Buying a phone in the US
The US version of the Nexus 5 does not support the LTE frequency bands used in the UK, (3, 7 and 20) so you will not get 4G data. If this is important to you, buy the non-US model.

The US actually has procedures for this circumstance. It doesn't sound quite as bad as you make it out to be.
