comment Why does my app crash when I download it through 3G?
This seems like something you're going to need to debug on your own, at least to some extent. You should be able to "report" the problem to the Play Store when the application crashes - that will give you a stack trace and other useful information. Otherwise I don't think there's enough information to go on. You could also try using logcat at the time of the crash (and also note that this could very well be a programming issue, which would really be off topic for this site, although I guess that's not immediately evident at this point).

comment Hibernate from command line
I don't think I've ever actually seen a device that supports something akin to hibernation, including ones running GB. What do you use (as in, what command/menu item) on the older ones to put them into that state? How do they behave in that state?

Android devices typically don't implement this (some discussion related to is can be found in Do Android 3.0 tablets have standby/hibernate mode?)

comment Lock down 'receive text messages' setting
Yes, I think we need more detail on your setup here. Are you using some kind of carrier integration, like the one from Sprint? Are you having Google Voice forward your SMS messages to your phone? Unless your phone and your GV number are the same (which would require carrier integration) they should be completely unrelated to one another. If someone texts your GV number your phone won't receive an actual SMS unless you have forwarding or integration configured, GV will just get the message.

comment Does a factory reset on a Galaxy Nexus wipe the virtual sd card directory?
Possibly worth noting: if you use a custom recovery to wipe the /data partition it will skip the sdcard directory by default.

comment How can I remotely control my mobile without rooting it?
If you find a solution, please post it as an answer; it's perfectly acceptable to answer your own questions. Putting answers in your question is confusing and makes it essentially impossible to vote on the answer. (Also, arguably, if this is a dupe of anything it may most likely be Any VNC solutions for an unrooted device? since that also specifically asks for non-root solutions; the other actually didn't so I'm re-opening at least for now).
