    That circle is for GPRS and I think you are confusing it with the GPS system.

    GPRS is a slower data system than the EDGE system and that is the system you are connected with when you see the circle (rather than the E).


    I'm not certain if you can turn off the GPS system but with the location services turned off it won't search for it when you start an application that may normally look for your location.

    Thanks so there is no way to remove the circle thing at the top so there is no form of internet on?

    You could turn on the airplane mode or remove the SIM card. Otherwise I think it will always look for that connection along with the cellular connection.

    Are you just worried about getting charged for something you didn't know you were using or is this some other paranoia?
