    Having turn off all data transmission i know(wifi, 3G, EDGE and GPRS), i still get the tiny o beside the singtel logo at the status bar. I turned off the GPRS by renaming the APN to Disabled and turning off EDGE with SBSetting. Still i see this o. it must be trying to transmit data but cannot becoz my apn is wrong.

    how do i stop it from trying to connect? i dont want the o icon there even though my data usage is 0kb. i feel it is eating my battery life.

    airplane mode really save a lot of juice. but i want to do calling and do sms. i just want the gprs and other data connectivity to be off. but the gprs icon is always there! does it have to do with service provided and sim card?

    Why do you need it gone so badly? If you aren't doing anything it's not going to eat up battery life.
