    Smile New to Android, 1st day using my Galaxy Nexus

    Hello, I had been using an old jailbroken iPhone 3G, and my financial aid from college helped me get the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ directly from google.play no contracts or bloatware.
    Please be kind, I know I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to android, but please help me get most out of the phone.
    Any APP suggestions would be most appreciated, but mostly I'd like to know one thing first off. What is the best way to teather to my laptop (Alienware M11x-R3 w/ bluetooth & wifi) for internet sharing on the go?

    But yes, any good game or social networking apps would he helpful as well. Below is a list of everything I have already installed and transferred my accounts over from the iPhone:
    Adobe Reader
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Foursquare
    Battlenet Authenticater
    Draw Something
    Words with Friends (having trouble logging into my current account)
    MeetMe
    Weather Channel
    Old Time Clock Widget(new to me)
    Walgreens
    Geico
    GetGlue
    AVG Antivirus
    Angry Birds Seasons
    Netflix
    Speedtest.net
    (and of course my google plus, maps, messenger, youtube...)

    BTW: I'm on T-Mobile the old Unlimited Plan, where I get slowed down after 200MB. (Speaking of T-mobile, is it easy to setup the wifi calling feature for when I'm on wifi?)

    Congrats on the gNex and welcome to the forum!

    You might check out FoxFi in the market for tethering - it does not require that you be rooted...good luck!

    does the native tethering not work? If not I would root and install a JellyBean rom I know the native wifu tethering works on them I use it all the time. I say this because I don't think third party tethering apps are compatible with JellyBean yet and to be honest if your not on JellyBean you aren't getting the most out of your phone Imo
