WiFi Tether and Phone Call Surprise
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.

Re: WiFi Tether and Phone Call Surprise
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.
