    Isn't the one with the green on the Wi-Fi picture something that's running? I must have took the pictures when they were in red but a few seconds before the ones that are red had green and also there were a few more that had green. Does this means somethings running in the background?

    The free version of Netstat is ad-supported, so after about 10 seconds your phone will connect to the web for ads. In your case, it looks like amazonaws.com is where AdMob ads are coming from.

    The connection to scnet.net could be anything. Perhaps it's from an app you recently opened? Double-click your home button to bring up a list of recent apps. If you hold down on an app icon, you will get an option to kill it, and this will eliminate its network connections.

    Buying the no ad version made my life easier :p but if you can identify the ad connection it still works fine.

    Things I noticed that can cause weird connections hanging around -

    Facebook app in background (even with Push off)
    Email app in background (with Push off, might have to clear syncs using the toggles and opening calender and notes etc that people often say)
    AppStore login in the settings menu
