    What is that leftmost notification icon for? It's been bugging me all day.

    I'm surprised there's not a menu somewhere to choose what icons will and will not display. Please let there be an app for this soon?

    Rooted phone will be the only way I know of getting rid of it... At least that's the case with my N2...it's a definite eye sore

    Thanks. I never saw location services have a notification, so I was baffled when I couldn't find anything on that was on but not accounted for. Although now that you mention it, it would be nice to not display certain icons, especially something like E911!

    Yup.. I don't like icons clogging up my status bar.. I don't even show a clock on my phone... Haha
    Just like that annoying wifi notification the N2 shows in dropdown area.. Got rid of them all..
