I also noticed that without sim card, it keeps trying to communicate
with it continuously. I do not know if it is resource consuming ? (is
gsm off in such a case ? Or does it suck battery a little more ?)
Polling SIM module wihtout card so often is not needed, especially
since we cannot change SIM card without taking battery out (granted it
could be done when plugged in)
