Think about your question a little more.

Yeah I went to Canada and used my phone the whole time. They pay for the whole thing

Turn on att WiFi in your phone settings When abroad, turn off cell data, leave on WiFi and you are able to call from locations with WiFi like your hotel

Don’t abuse it. I’ve seen some crazy high phone bills due to international usage - primarily data but voice too. Limit your calls and turn your data off and use WiFi whenever possible. You don’t want to get questioned about a high bill and have to explain you were on vacation.

I did but not to much

I’ve always done it, and it is explicitly allowed within reason. I don’t use my hotspot (much) unless it’s for work, and I don’t stream Netflix or videos. That’s always kept my bill at a reasonable level and far below what triggers any kind of questions.

That feeling when a well meaning manager keeps ending meetings with “have a happy holiday, and enjoy some time off with your family,” and he is unaware that some of us (a) already celebrated Hanukkah (and don’t really celebrate anyway), (b) are alone and unhappy, (c) kind of have no reason to burn PTO for a non holiday when you’re alone, bored, and have nothing going on in yet another month of a terrible year. It’s like one more set of fingers on a chalk board listening to such pleasantries.
