I can only speak from over 40 yrs of experience even before we even heard of phantom power. I have done live shows all over the country with all kinds of consoles. I have owned and sometimes operated 2 different pro studios in KY and still in Nashville. Have never damaged a mic or console input to my knowledge by plugging/unplugging mics with or without phantom on. Pops yes. Damaged speakers? Yes in one case that I am pretty sure of. Damaged to a ribbon mic? Not to my knowledge and I own a few inc old RCA models. Best to turn off when not in use or when changing sources. Anything can happen.
