If the battery was at fault then turning the phone off probably would not help.

Aren't you supposed to turn off your phone during landing? Oh, forgot, iPhone users don't know how to turn it off.

i think the comments on the moded iphone is rubbish,
for 1 its a cracked back so its not the steve jobs back cover. it just looks it.
2 i have an iphone and ipad and neither has caught fire.
i also work in a phone shop.
i have seen 1000's of android and bberry phones come in for repair on power issues and exploding battteries and only seen one case of the same happening with any apple device... that case being this one.
negative comment i believe are coming from people who use rubbishdroid or badberry ??
most of them have never use an ios device and how powerful they actually are.....
that is all :D
