Sometimes the 3g icon at the top of the screen on my Bionic is blue and sometimes it is white.  What is the difference and why does it change?

I'm not 100% sure...but when the icon is blue it either means that you have a data connection active and/or it means your phone's system is synced/connected-to the mothership -- Google servers.

I'm almost positive that I've been able to access some Internet content when the icon is white -- i.e., I could access some data...

...but I've never been able to access GMail -- Google servers -- when the server is white.

It's almost always Blue on my Bionic (when I have a data connection at all) and is only white when it's initially acquiring the data connection.
