In my experience No signal shows up when in fact the modem is on and

When the modem is off it does not appear, which is what needs fixing.

There's at least one bug tracking this issue ( ie. no icon to reflect
modem offline ):


I think part of the problem here is that we are not showing the signal
carrier in any way in the normal UI. Instead, we have "Search" in the
top bar. But with that moving into the header in apps and the dash, we
should probably show the carrier name, and when there is no carrier show
"Searching for network" or "No SIM, SOS only" or similar, as every other
phone on the market has done for the last 20 years.

...and yet another bug to track this issue, feel free to add comments to the bug:
