    Alright, hope this hasn't been asked before.

    How can you tell which one is connected or not? I obviously know if it says 3G it's 3G and if it says 4G it's 4G. My question is more geared towards Wi-Fi vs 3G/4G. Sometimes my bars are white & sometimes they're blue? Does blue mean connected data wise & white you're not? B/c It still says 3G while my Wi-Fi is on, and sometimes they're both white, and sometimes both blue, and other times one is blue & one is white. Just wondering what it means. Thanks!!!

    Correct assumption. White = no data transmitting, Blue= yes data transmitting.

    when I use WiFi I have my smart action disable my cellular data so only connected with WiFi.

    Thanks. Also just seen this has been asked in this forum already. Sorry! So what does it mean if both the Wi-Fi & the 3G are blue? Even sometimes the 3G logo goes away and it's all bars for Wi-Fi and phone signal? Confusing!!
