That is true... if the cell phone is turned off, it is not considered active and cannot transmit a signal so there is no RF radiation that can be a protential problem. It has been suggested that cell phones be turned off during the night especially if they are being put in the bedroom as the low level radiation that is emitted even when the cell phone is on but not in use can cause insomnia and other difficulties. It has also been suggested that cell phones not be used in the car as this may increase the radiation exposures as it is in a smaller enclosed area. Keeping the cell phone away from your body when in use and when not in use is a good idea. Hands free is a good thing but even that will not totally eliminate RF radiation exposures... Just a little additional information gleaned from browsing on the net.
