    it's a GPRS icon which tells you that your iphone GPRS setting is active.

    I think it means that gprs is available, you dont need to turn it off, if your concerened with data usage just edit your apn and it would be just fine.

    If you're saving juice, you can turn it off by switching to Airplane mode, which in turn, turning off your network.

    it can be:

    circle - gprs
    E - edge
    G - 3G
    airport icon - wifi

    It is an indicator of what signal is available to your iphone for internet.

    I would say, don't turn it off (as mentioned, the only way is to put it on airplane mode). ANd I don't think it consumes battery that much.

    Treat it like you would see the other indicators on you iphone--globe, clock, battery.

    Thanks for the info, but what does a paper plane by the battery indicator mean? All my email accounts have no unread mail. When I'm in the main page this indicator turns blue, when I'm on the email pages it is white. ???

    I think your Bluetooth is on. Turn it off in Settings > General > Bluetooth.
