AKA: flight mode. Is it not just the thing that supposedly breaks 
interferes other gadgets in hospitals and aircrafts..?

Calling it register is silly. We are already accustomed to Silent Mode, 
Meeting and other profiles on the phones. So this should probably go 
with that bunch. When phone is on flight mode (or offline) it should not 
try to keep gsm alive and connected, more than that, it should be 
completely turned off. Other features should still be accessible, like 
games and whatnot.
