I'm not on my computer right now but the files for the blue 3g icons are named a little bit different in your systemUI.apk all of the blue 3g icons are named something similar to stat_system_data_inandout_FULLY_3g..... the white one being the same thing minus the FULLY. Now your guess is as good as mine between what fully and not fully means hopefully that helps some, I've switched all mine to the blue 3g icons

Blue just means you have a connected data connection.

I guess when its white I am not fully 3G...lol

Funny thing is When its white I seem to get better speeds. I dont have any hard proof of that though, just seems that way.

Its not a problem, just something I noticed.

Thanks for the reply mx750 & Snow02.

Usually for me, when the 3G turns white, my speeds go out the window. I have no clue why this happens, but this coupled with the dropping to 1X annoys the hell out of me. It seems to drop whenever I need the phone most. :mad2:

this guy speaks the truth. mine is always on blue 3G or 1x (in my concrete bunker of an office building). the only time i notice it is white 3G is right after bootup for about 5 seconds.
