Default How can I remove all the phone functions?

I want to turn my x10 into a wifi mp3 player. There is no sim card inserted. I don't want bars to show. Basically how an ipod would be to an iphone.

You can do this by some cosmetic and some functional changes.
For example:
You can edit the framework-res.apk and replace all the images related to radio signal bars and G/3G/H symbol with a transparent 48x48 icons.
That way you won't see anything related to network.

Then, you can turn airplane mode off, that should do it.
Also, freezing the Phone.apk with Titanium backup should block everything making X10 a phone.

Seriously...?
If you want the icons removed you need to edit the framework,
since it was designed to display those icons, because this is a PHONE.

And by freezing the phone process you ensure that the phone will no longer function as one.

If it's too much trouble, just turn on the airplane mode already and start playing music!

Jeez!

The GSM radio still sips away juice in the background.
