    That "G" stands for GPRS service which is activated on your SIM card by your service provider. The symbol "G" is showing that your phone has active data connection. It costs too much if you don't have unlimited data plan.

    To disable it, do one of the following

    1) Delete the APN (Access Point Name) from Settings--Wireless and network--Mobile Networks--Access Point Names

    2) or Uncheck "Use Packet Data" from Settings--Wireless and network--Mobile Networks

    Two related questions.
    In my case I have a capital 'H'. Is there a list somewhere that explains the various codes ?

    How can you tell/check what speed your phone is accessing ?
