    Usually they are grey-ed out, but sometimes one, the other, or even both will turn black.

    What do they mean?

    The one pointing down indicates downloading, the one pointing up indicates uploading.

    When one or the other is black, it means that activity is being performed (either downloading or uploading).

    Oh, awesome. Thanks. Will the "3G" change to something else if I'm someplace where I don't have service?

    changes to "1X" when "3G" can't be accessed. "1X" is extremely slow in comparison.

    Yep. And if you have no data service, you won't have 3G or 1X up there - it'll just have the signal bars. You can see that when you make a phone call - as soon as the call starts ringing, the 3G/1X symbol disappears, because the phone can no longer use cell data.
