At least with GSM, a mobile station needs to receive a base station
signal before it transmits anything at all.  If no cell network signals
are received at all, the mobile should not be transmitting anything at
all either, as without a base station signal it has no idea what
frequency channel it should be transmitting on, etc.  I would think
that the same principle would hold for all other widely deployed cell-
phone technologies..
