Encryption aware phone?

"Handsets are supposed to provide an on-screen notification when encryption has been disabled, but conformance to that detail is very rare indeed."

Has anyone ever seen such a notification? More importantly, are there any phones where you can set a flag which means "If the base station asks for an unencrypted connection then the answer is always - No"?
