Why are the cellphones of missing Malaysian Airlines passengers still ringing?

The 'unprecedented mystery' behind the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 deepened on Monday when relatives claimed they were able to call the cellphones of their missing loved ones.

According to the Washington Post, family of some of the 239 people on board the vanished Boeing 777 said that they were getting ring tones and could see them as online through a Chinese social networking service called QQ.

One man said that the QQ account of his brother-in-law showed him as active, but frustratingly for those waiting desperately for any news, messages sent have gone unanswered and the calls have not been picked up. 

All I know is, this whole situation is very, very bizarre. The lack of distress calls, the lack of debris... No matter how much logic one uses, there really is quite a lot of room for 'conspiracy theories'.
