    I have a MacBook Pro with no modem. Yet the modem/phone icon appears in my crowded menu. Is there a way to make this disappear? Thanks!

    'Is there a way to make this (modem/phone icon) disappear?'

    01. Launch 'System Preferences' (in the /Applications/' folder, or via the 'Apple, System Preferences' menu item).
    02. Click on the 'Network' utility icon.
    03. From the resultant window's 'Show:' popup menu - select 'Internal Modem'*.
    04. Click on the 'Modem' tab.
    05. Click on the 'Show modem status in menu bar' check box, to remove the check mark.

    -----

    * - If 'Internal Modem' is not listed, then ...
    01. Select 'Network Port Configurations'.
    02. Click on the 'Internal Modem' check box - to add a check mark.
    03. Click on the 'Apply Now' button.
    04. Perform the above Steps - 03 through 05.

    THanks guys but neither of these work. Internal Modem does not appear on any panels on my MacBook Pro.
