Hi my phone been acting up my WiFi is suppose to be blue up on the top right corner but I just notice it has been grey for about a week as well as the service symbol and the battery life. I checked my data usage and notice I have gone over my data as well. Could you let me know what's going on and how I can fix it? Also hopefully I haven't been charged extra for data.

Thanks

Which phone do you have? Is it a Nexus 4 or 5 or Moto G that's running Android 4.4.2 kit Kat? If it is that's how the status bar looks now in the version of Android that is running on your phone.

That explains the discolored bar but not the excess data usage. My new moto g sent amsg saying I went from 75% to 95% in less than 24 hours. Considering it took me 3 1\2 weeks to get to 75% I would say there's something wrong with that.

Mostly chrome and play store, but I don't use either very much unless I'm connected to my wifi? Being a new phone I was downloading my apps but that was at home.

Well the only answer is that you weren't connected to your wifi when you thought you were because you thought the color of things would change in the status bar or something. The best thing to do is turn off your data connection when your at home so you can only connect through your wifi, that's what I do anyways. There's apps that will automatically do it for you but I just always do it manually.
What data plan are you on some are so small that it doesn't take much to use it up very quickly.

Or something? So that's the only answer but you don't know what it is. Great. I actually never noticed the color of the bar until the gentleman who started this post mentioned it. So I can assure you it was not that it 'wasn't connected because I thought the bar would chance color or something'. The first thing I did was set up my connection to avoid that problem. I've had this plan For 3 years and never gone over my limit until I got this phone. Thanks for your help, I'll just call my phone company.

My apologies for the misunterstanding, I read your post to be that I didn't connect the internet at all because of the color of the bar.. Or something. And no, I didn't place blame on anyone. I did not once claim, nor do I think, that it's your fault my data is is racked up. And before you talk about my attitude, maybe look at your own. 2 other people on this convo, one was helpful, one reported me, and both of them managed to be pleasant about it.

You see, to me, that sounds an awful lot like lashing out and calling him an idiot with no clue what he's talking about.

Reported for more rude language :(
Justine, please keep in mind that this is a family friendly environment. By all means be angry if you need to, but leave the potty mouth out of this, thank you.
