I don't think the cell phone searches with wide open power until and unless it "hears" a tower in the first place, because it has nothing to respond to.  I have been on long flights where I forgot to turn off my cell phone and I haven't found my battery to be significantly down by the time I discovered it had been on.

...or if you work in a cave, as I do on Tue & Thu. ;) I put my phone into Airplane Mode when I go inside. The shop at Krell is in the basement... no signals at all. :P

At least we have WiFi, which works well, so I can listen to this radio station there. :) (My phone lets me activate WiFi while in Airplane Mode, which is handy!)

If you go on a cave tour, the phone will do the same thing but won't be having the receiver interference issue, it will just keep trying to reach a tower using full power.
