    SSH stands for "Secure Shell" and is network based. Technically speaking you need WiFi.

    I think the point is, you can turn off your Wi-Fi, have SSH on and use the tunnel through to 127.0.0.1 to get in. So wifi is actually off on your device.

    well, i said technically. technically it's remote.
    it's a little "hack", almost the same as using total commander.

    It's too fine of a distinction. All people care about is if they're away from a wifi signal, they still have an option to SSH into their phones/ipods.
