    Wow..... I can't even believe it... That is crazy...

    But yeah to answer youre question, when the wifi is grey I think it means its on standby waiting for a connection. When its white, means its connected.

    I still can't believe its working without a sim...

    The way I understand it from reading a bunch of threads (I was having some wifi issues) is that yes, you can use the internet without the SIM, but the logo will be gray. This way if you are somewhere with no service, but has wifi, you can still surf the internet (someone gave a ski lodge as an example). The logo turns white when you are connected to BIS through wifi, at which point your phone will do all the BBM and email will go through wifi as well. This will only happen if you have a SIM because you can only connect to BIS if you have the plan through your carrier.

    If I have any of this wrong, feel free to correct me.

    Ya you can still use it with out a SIM card. It will turn white once its connected to the the BIS network (BB dataplan and SIM installed). But you can still surf and use apps that use wifi without the SIM.

    For whatever reason, that just blows my mind. But I guess I was left in the dark on that one.
