Tipping and Mobile Phones

Jump to last reply

Hi, in June my husband and I are visiting New Mexico, (a tiny bit of) Arizona, Utah and Colorado, for about a month.

We're from Australia where tipping is rare. We were in New York a few years ago when restaurant tipping was 25%, is it the same where we are going or less?

Who else do we tip and how much? How much for hotel maids?

Also our mobile phones will not work in the USA so we thought we'd buy a cheap phone each when we arrive ($10 + cost of calls?). Any tips? Which company has the best coverage in the area we're visiting?

Thanks for any help.
