i can confirm this directly. a ride into Vegas for DC 20 demonstrated
that Alexander's toys have the ability to inject into receive only
(airplane mode) and tip to exploitation.  (baseband exploits being
exceptional at leaking keys, elevating privs, and erasing tracks...)

battery out or faraday caged the only effective options.

(or as Snowden demonstrated, put in a fridge to avoid scrutiny and
audio capture the best idea.  non-serial tower associations are an
anomaly alerted and acted upon.)
