Airplane Mode, not connected to a WiFi, probably would have sufficed. Iím not 100% sure you can completely shut off an iPhone.
Drain the battery :P

Yes you can.
That is the only scenario in which Iím 100% sure my iPhone was completely shut off.

What about holding the power button and then "swipe to power off"?

In a very intangible sense, it just doesnít feel like the phone is actually turned off when I do that. Itís not like it was with dumbphones, where there was an on/off switch, or a blank screen meant it was turned off (as opposed to simply being locked).

I wonder if it was my carrier. I am cheap and use Consumer Cellular.
I brought my own unlocked Nokia dumbphone to Consumer Cellular a few years ago.  My phone sounded-off at the time they said it would.  I do not have a message plan. so the only thing that showed up on the screen was 'OK' and an 'X', with no other message.
