Does the Nexus 4 battery drain faster if it has no SIM card inserted?

LOL The other way round is more likely. My HTC Wildfire lasts about a week without a SIM inserted. With SIM (but mobile data disabled) up to 4-5 days. Drops below 2 days with mobile data then... – Izzy Feb 19 '13 at 15:35
No idea about Nexus 4 try it and see. I have seen an old Xperia X8 that used considerably more battery with the sim removed which was the opposite of what I expected. – Ifor Feb 20 '13 at 17:27
