comment How can AT&T charge me to use WiFi while I'm abroad?
@JDĹ‚ugosz Not sure about iOS, but on Android you enable Airplane Mode, which turns off all radios, then you can turn back on the ones you want. (WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.)

comment Kicked out of hotel in morning when booking through booking agency (asked to pay for extra day)
As for why this is normal - the hotel needs leaving guests to vacate the rooms with enough time for them to be cleaned for incoming guests to arrive in the afternoon/evening. They need your stuff out of the room for this to happen, so they may offer late checkout and store your stuff. If you just leave it and don't check out, this is extra hassle for them - if they even have your room available to keep another night, based on bookings.

comment 3 blocks away from a fraud?
@gsamaras You might be able to arrange a phone call to give your credit card information over the phone, which would be somewhat more secure.

comment Is it a good idea to mention to the USA immigration officer that I'm visiting my girlfriend?
@gerrit With the caveat that they also watch out for marriage scams designed merely to get you into the country and then dissolve the marriage.

comment How common is open carry of firearms in the USA?
Having been to the southwest US, you're far more likely to see scorpions and rattlesnakes than normal citizens open-carrying handguns. (And you'll be in significantly greater danger from them as well...)

comment What should I do after buying an airline ticket?
It's also probably worth noting that the boarding process really isn't as simple as "everybody lines up and gets on the plane" - most airlines will offer boarding first for first-class passengers, those traveling with small children, or those who may require additional time to board. (Wheelchair-bound, etc.) After that, they still will usually board in smaller groups so the entire load of passengers isn't rushing the gate. Some assign groups back-to-front, some according to when you checked in, and so on. If you try to board before your group is called, you'll be sent back.

comment What's the best money option for US travelling?
I would also strictly avoid the pre-paid card option. Some places won't accept them at all (since your name is not on the card) and in some cases you'll get false rejections if your available balance is too close to the transaction amount, or if you've got reserve amounts that haven't cleared yet.
