    I didn't think the GNex would allow tethering and a phone call at one time. I was pleasantly surprised tonight to discover that I could continue browsing Android Central on my computer while chatting with my wife.

    Is anyone else surprised or am I just late in getting the memo?

    4g allows voice and data at the same time so it makes sense. I also tried it out a while back. Talked on the phone while watching slingbox on ipad that was tethered to phone via wifi.

    If you are on 3G connection on your phone, I don't believe it works. Your data will cut out for the phone call.

    You are correct. LTE is data only so you're able to use it while voice goes over the CDMA network. You can't do simultaneous voice & data via 3G.

    For some reason I thought only the thunderbolt allowed voice and data at the same time. I don't have LTE at home, so I wouldn't have had the opportunity to try it before now.

    If you weren't connected to LTE, then you must have been connected to Wi-Fi. The Verizon Nexus doesn't have the hardware for simultaneous voice and data over 3G.

    Unless you're saying you were on 4G and I'm misinterpreting your post.
