    This is probably very basic but I don't know....I've noticed that at certain times the wifi signal and the 4G on my razr go blue...sometimes they're white....why? What does it mean? I'm having some issues with my router...wifi is sketchy sometimes and goes out because of it...is that why it's changing color? Thanks !!!

    On my Bionic blue means connected and white means not connected. I would assume the Razr is the same?

    (edit) Just remembered I have a custom rom installed so the above may be totally off for the Razr.

    With my experience on bionic and Razr white is when it is syncing or connecting to a server. Blue is connected. But I have processed while it was white

    Hmmm ok so i see my wifi signal now is blue...but if white means not connected why do i have 3 to 4 bars on my 3G? I thought when there are bars its connected? Or because wifi is connected 4G is like in the background?
    Thanks!

    Bars have to do with your voice connection. Those measure the connectivity for voice, SMS and such not your signal strength for data. You can rock 5 bars and have no data connection

    White means connected, as in you have data and can surf the web. Blue means connected to Google's servers.

    What does it mean when 4G is white but wifi is blue? Wifi connected to google servers?

    I'd have to assume so. You can be connected to Google's server on either WIFI or cellular, 3G or 4G. His was the only explanation that seemed to make sense. I'm not saying it's right, just that it sounds plausible.

    It's normally green; blue is only used when your connexion is being monitored by a government agency. Federal law requires that citizens be advised of all monitoring activities, and Verizon has decided to use an approved, colour coding system. White means no monitoring, green is monitoring by Verizon or Google services (this is normal; white is usually only when synching or roaming), and blue for government monitoring. You probably got on a list due to a website you surfed; it's actually quite common and nothing to worry about. In fact, I hear the majority of Verizon customers are now in the "blue zone" for monitoring, so I wouldn't give it a second thought.

    When you have wifi turned on it is the proprietary radio used, so it is connected to Google. Your 4G is acting as backup and will switch to blue quickly after you lose your wifi signal. When you're on the edge I've seen both be blue, but when there's a strong wifi my 3G is white.

    Not that I doubt you, but where did you get that information, if you don't mind my asking? It's such obscure information that unless you were searching our you happened to read our hear a news report, I wouldn't expect anyone to be aware.

    I was just messing about. As far as I know, white means available but not connected (could be in the process of connecting, though), blue means connected. Someone earlier said blue meant Google services; not sure about that one.
