The worst bunch is anything with integrated SOC running baseband having shared memory access with main CPU.

However, I personally feel that it is significantly higher risk to get your device infected with "standard" malicious SW having nothing to do with BB or 3G stack. There exist loads of crap especially for Androids aiming for that.

True, there currently being no device that does detect it
(as I believe cryptophone is still vaporware...)
IMSI Catcher Detector for Android, as far as I understand it, uses geolocation databases to check if the BTS with with CID/LAC like the one you're connected with could be around the place you're at, and if not, then it marks it as IMSI catcher.
