how to remove Mobile Sync from sidebar?

Is there a way to hide the “Mobile Sync” item in the sidebar? I don’t think I shall ever use it.

No.

Is that a no to ever being able to remove it from the sidebar? I never use it either…

If you are never going to sync to DTTG, just rename the Mobile Sync group(s) to something else that is meaningful to you and use it/them as normal groups. You can replace the sync icon by pasting a normal group icon or a custom icon into the icon box of the sync group info pane.

Great, thanks, I’d never tried to rename the built in folders. Ack, so stupid!
