    For some reason everytime I'm connected to a wifi network my 4g or 3g
    Turns white...normally I wouldn't mind this but I am paying 30 a month for 4g so I would like that to be on with my wifi as a helper. Anyone have this problem too or is there a way I can change this?

    That's how it works. 4g lte or wifi it can't be both.

    I don't know if that's really a problem. Mine does the same, and when I turn off wifi the 3G/4G turns blue again. It's letting you know what connection you're using, but I didn't think you could use 'both' at the same time. It's saying your 3G is up and running, but not being used for data, or vise versa. If I'm wrong, someone correct me.

    I believe you are correct.

    Yes, it is true that when WiFi is on, network data is turned off. It can be confusing sometimes when the WiFi indicator is on in the notification bar at the same time the 3G or 4G indicator is on. When this happens to me the 3G/4G and signal bars are white (inactive).
