When I'm using wifi the signal bar turns blue which kinda cool, but when I turn my wifi off the signal bar turns grey! Could someone tell me why? *noob here!*

Had the same question. Except my cell reception bars stay grey now...back awhile ago when I flashed an update through cm10.1 my signal bars turned grey and stayed grey. Any ideas why or Google services possibly not activated?

No. They mean you are connected to google VIA the internet. You can still browse the internet with Grey
