    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 on Android 4.2.2.
    Is there any way of removing ongoing icons which permanently sit on the left side of the status bar? I ask because apps like 'Unlock with WiFi' warns you when disabling its permanent icon that it will hinder the process' activity. I tested it and yes, the app didn't detect the state of my WiFi well.
    Same goes for BBM's Connected icon.

    Is there any way of making their visibility 0% or making the icons 0px, if not 1px, without disabling the icons entirely?

    The BBM icon can be disabled without affecting anything it does

    I know. It's a good example so people know what I mean, though. I prefer my status bar rid of any unnecessary icons as possible.

    Juice Defender also has one and it says disabling it will make it more likely that Android closes it when the RAM is full but I haven't had any issues since I disabled it. What does that Wi-Fi app do?

    I have a problem with BBM! My bbm connected icon is on and my notifications icon is on, but the connected icon don't stay on my notification bar at the top of my screen! Yet when I go into bbm and turn it off then on again it comes on but as soon as I leave the bbm app it disappears!!

    Looks like I solved the problem! Closed the BBM app and reopened it and its fine now

    Long press the notification and press App info, then uncheck show notifications.
