    why do my signal bars keep going grey lately?

    Recently I am having problems with the signal on my nexus, the bars keep turning grey and I am unable to do hardly anything with it! It has worked flawlessly before a few days ago it now it is making me very annoyed, I am on o2 and in the UK.
    I hope it is just a network problem and not a hardware problem. Anyone else had a similar problem or shed some light on this please

    Welcome to the Forum, glad to have ya here.

    It basically means that though you the phone has a signal, it is not connected to the network, this usually resolves itself in a very short time, however if it continues to be a problem with long outages, it could be a bad sim card.

    There's an app in the market called "Reset Connections", which could help you in the short-term. Also, make sure your firmware is up-to-date etc.

    Thanks guys, my firmware is up to date 4.0.4 update yesterday so that is OK.
    Will wait and see if it gets better before trying the app. Thanks for taking time to help.
