    its a feature of the upgrade.
    custom roms/themes will probably be out soon that suppress it.

    well, my phone is rooted, but a theme sounds like a big thing to do just to get rid of a symbol..
    Thx :)

    You will probably find mods for custom roms will come out to do it. It has been mentioned many times on xda. I've not actually seen the solution yet, but i suspect it wont be long.

    As long as you have vibration set (for example vibration set to always), the icon would be there. The only way to remove is not to have vibration set, or possibly root and do something to it.
