    Someone in my life does not have internet ans does not want to get internet.
    They are looking for a phone that would give them wifi hotspots access.
    The carrier offers unlimited data slows down after 10gbs. This person owns a old I book 12" 500mhz ppc and would tether with that.

    As you can imagine the computer has a very outdated browser and does not load Facebook right. So I think a phone with a big screen would be good.

    At the carrier their choices are:

    IPhone 4s
    HTC wildfire s
    SG S2
    Galaxy Nexus

    Ans that's it. Other wise its blackberry or the HTC radar 4g (3.5g speeds).

    Wildfire S gets scratched. Its not in the same league. That's like the Vios among Ferraris.

    I pick SGS2.

    Big screen eliminates iPhone.

    Galaxy SII or Galaxy Nexus would either one be great choices. Both may have to be rooted depending on the carrier to tether. If I was choosing between those 2 right now I personally would choose the Nexus, but I am very happy with my GSII.

    I do love my Galaxy Nexus and it does allow free tethering on the network.

    I know the first 2 nexus phones did, but I wasn't sure about the Galaxy Nexus. I know google compromised and allowed Verizon to make a few changes so I didn't know how many changes they have allowed on various carriers since I haven't had the opportunity of owning a Galaxy Nexus.

    I think another one to consider, is the Samsung Galaxy Note. Large screen is nice, especially if you're using the phone to replace a computer.
