    What's the symbol on top that looks like an oldschool bluetooth headset with waves coming out of it?

    I don't have my bluetooth on, btw.

    The online manual should tell you. I'm guessing it's either GPS, WiFi, or the location thingy.

    Can you find a picture of it, or something close on google so we know what exactly you are seeing?

    Weird...it's none of them.

    Let me try to find a picture.

    It literally looks like a cartoon rendering of this with 3 radio waves coming from it.

    It's been on since day 1. I can't figure out for my life.

    What data-connection are you talking about?

    Just turned gps on and off, it's still there. It doesn't look like a satellite at all.
     
  12. Hearing aid option on?

    So, along the same lines as the OP. Does anyone know how to get rid of the location icon? (the one that looks like a compass, or a steering wheel) I hate that it sits in my notification bar taking up so much space when I really have no need to see it, ever. :(
     
  16. Yup no prob.

    I think the only way you can turn off default icons would be to turn it off completely

    I thought about that, but it looks like you can't turn it off. Not to mention, I'd rather leave it on in case I have to call 911 from my cell. :)

    It just seems a bit ridiculous that they leave the icon on all the time. When I had a Nexus One, that icon was nowhere to be found if I remember correctly.

    Menu>settings>location & security, might have some extra settings vanilla Android doesn't.
