It's hard to say for certain as every situation is different. However, I have had pictured transmitted with yellow lights.
I've had it transmit fine when the Signal is yellow. Even with a "yellow" Signal, the Server should still go green once connected. I think the Server has to be green to indicate it is connected to somewhere for the uploaded pics to go. I could be wrong, won't be the first time.
