It's like a clone of my phone? (dumb noobie question)

    Well, my husband's phone. I used his Google account to setup gApps and now the wallpaper is the same as his phone (I didn't put that picture on the card or Nook but it's there!) and it's downloading all the apps he has (including the Verizon ones but not Facebook - still doesn't like that one).

    Is this normal? I guess because it syncs to the account? But why the same wallpaper?

    Android phones have a backup and restore function.
    Settings>Privacy> Backup my settings and Automatic restore. These will backup to Google's cloud drive. Whenever you sign in to another device it will automatically restore all the settings previously saved, including wallpaper, notification ringtones (if factory ones) and applications downloaded from the market. You can uncheck these boxes to prevent his apps from appearing on your device, or create a gmail account and sign in under that :)
