I'm taking a trip to America tomorrow morning and I would like to know if I will get charged on my bill when I pass the boarder to Detroit. I have a data block on my phone and all I want to do is listen to music on the road to chicago, but I do not want to get charged. Also, the hotel has Wi-Fi. Will I get charged if I connect to it?

Make sure you turn on airplane mode so no cell signal gets through at all. If you can, inform your friends/family not to text you during your trip just in case you need to turn the network back on for an emergency.

Alternatively, just take out your SIM card and put it back when you're in Canada again.

Music and WiFi are free everywhere because they have nothing to do with a carrier.
