You shouldn't really disable icons like that either since they give information in a way a user is used to. I don't know about this exact icon but I guess a user might be pissed if the icon indicates that the phone is online and you remove it.

I agree with e-u-l-o-g-y. And most phone manufacturers agree too, and that's why they don't let Java applications get rid of them.

Because thats Symbian and that allows more control over the phone. J2me is a total sandbox system, and does not allow you to operate outside of the sandbox. So all low level control functions are protected.

One of J2ME's big selling points is security. Another big selling point is that it's an open platform and anyone can develop and deploy applications to the end user (as opposed to a closed platform like BREW were the deployment is centralized and there is a body, Qualcomm, that can "look out" for the user). The way to mix those two selling points is to limit the possibilities of the developer so he can't screw up things too bad.

With Symbian apps the user should know that the application can do almost anything it wants so he uses it "at his own risk".
