Question about Nokia Consumer Headset
Here's how I fixed the damn headset thang on my Nokia.
Take out the SIM card and start the phone *WITHOUT* the SIM card.
Wait until the phone's screen says, "insert SIM card."
Wait a minute, then re-insert the SIM card, and re-start the phone.
Voila, the horrid headset symbol is gone (I hope).
Do it a few times if it doesn't take the first time (although, it did on mine).
Hope this works for you, because hell, that headset setting is a real beyatch when you *don't* want it. ;)

Tried all the mentioned, except the demolition method. No good.
How I solved the problem:
Turned off the phone, took out the battery and the SIM card from the phone, and then inserted another SIM card. That's basically the idea.
Then I put back the battery. Turned on the phone with the alien card inserted, and there was no problem anymore.
Except that it wasn't my SIM card.
So I did the procedure again, placing back the original SIM card. After starting the phone again, there was no problem.
Hope it'll work for you other guys too, godspeed ! :)

I saw this suggestion for another nokia model and this worked!
1.Turn off your phone..
2.Press and hold three keys, i.e. Green Button(call answer key) + " * " button + " 3 " button and while holding the buttons boot the phone.. ANY three keys
3.Hold till the phone shows the Nokia Logo/formatting screen..

What looks like a head set icon is actually the voice mail icon if you look on page 40 of the users guide it shows it. I don't know why they have that, but I got rid of it buy going to AT&T's web site you will have to log in then look for technical support chat tell them what's up and they will just send a signal or something and the icon will go away. Or just call and they can do it that way. You will have to look around to find the chat here's the address http://www.wireless.att.com/support/chatLanding.do then select voice mail and chat with customer support.
Let me know if this works

I just removed the battery while the phone was still ON and that resolved the issue.
