Phosh modem on/off effectiveness?
I realize that there is no way that shutting off the modem via software can be as definitive as the hardware kill switch. However the switch is a bit of a pain to get to and I don't know how many on/off cycles it can take.

By tapping the cellular icon in Phosh's control area at top of the screen it disables the modem, but how effective is that? Does it actually turn the modem off and prevent it from connecting with the carrier, or does it just prevent messaging at the user level? If left turned off when powering the phone down the modem indicator will stay off the next time the phone is powered up - but until Phosh loads does the modem become active for a short time?

I'm just wondering how functional that software switch is.
