Re: They Can Hear You

With smart phones, there are different degrees of turning them off. The "Airplane" mode is supposed to shut off the radios, I doubt even an emergency SMS can get through that. A regular "off" merely puts the phone to sleep, but a "shut down" is more or less reliable, and should disable services as well as apps.
Of course, with a custom "spy" kernel-level driver, all bets are off - but it would mean a different driver for each phone model, which is above and beyond a "hacker's tool".
I'd say, if you use a "shut down" option, you're safe from anything but a directly targeted attack.
