    Just got the Dinc2 set up today, but can't figure out how to get the little Location or GPS icon off my bar. I turned the 3 Location settings off, and even GPS off, and it's always there. I guess it's no big deal but it takes up an extra space that I don't want.

    you can't get rid of it. I think stays up there because of the E911 service. ( which we cannot turn off )

    There is a mod over at XDA that will get rid of it but you have to be running the stock debloated deodexed rom. (I think)

    I just wish the whole notification bar was more configurable in the stock state. I don't like having the clock up there either. I have the time on my lockscreen, the big ass HTC widget on my home screen... I don't need it there, too.
    These phones are so customizable stock, except for that whole area....
