My phone is set to turn itself off every night roughly at the time that I go to bed. When I wake up, I turn it back on. I've set the security options on the phone so that it prompts me for the SIM PIN before it will turn on the radio, however, my WiFi immediately activates (or within a few seconds) of the phone powering on. I am notified of new messages received even when I didn't enter the SIM PIN yet (so the carrier is still off).
I've also conducted the test while the phone was on and just turned off the carrier (WiFi still on) and I am still getting e-mails.
I'm using 126.96.36.1991.
