Although I make jokes about almost everything, I consider the OP's question to be a perfectly valid one.
There is something particularly intimate about a device one sets on one's nightstand, and the idea of it containing a modem easily weirds people out.
Why, haven't many members of this very forum recommended disabling the modem, if for no other reason than fearing a doc or company somewhere might learn their AHI, or whatever? Oh, heavens! Lions and tigers and bears!
We can't expect every poster here to be a technological whiz-bang. I know I'm not one. We help newbies. And each other. Preferably without insult.
There are no stupid questions here. Only stupid answers. Usually mine. Or something like that.
No, it's not a valid question. It's not based on any evidence, it's no more valid than asking about a flat earth and moon hoax.
Some questions, simply should not be entertained nor encouraged.
Turning on Airplane mode???
A billion dollar company, with everything to lose, and nothing to be gained by installing covert microphones and cameras, is going to respect an airplane mode switch.
