You said you "never turn yours off". Are you a pilot? Or if not do you fly?
I am not completely sure what is required when the airlines tell you to turn off the phones when they shut the door. I see people working on their BB's seated near me. I have turned off the wireless and left the BB on and while expecting it, I have never been challenged by an attendant.
I'd like clarification of what is "off" for the purpose of being on an airliner.
