iphone white bars/black bars?

On my iphone it has black bars like in the carrier/wireless areas.
I was wondering how do you get the white one?

That picture has the white bars and the connection bars are blue and the E is blue how do you get the white bars instead of black?

I think what you're asking is purely dependent on the current screen. Apple made it to where the status bar now tries to mimic the color of the current window you have open. Mine are white whenever I'm in the home screen, but in the settings screen like you, it looks like you're picture.

I'm not going to show my home screen right now but this picture while I'm in Safari is how my status bar looks on my home screen as well, but not while in settings.

That's just how apple believes the status bar should be. Dark and out of the way when in certain apps and "white" and vivid when in others.

The only way you can get it to show black all the time is through jailbreaking and modding some files.

The status bar in your picture was used up until iOS 5. Since iOS 6, the status bar is black and white.
