In fact when there isn't any signal, the handset doesn't consume more 
power than under best conditions. It just waits and listens, once a 
signal appears, it 'handshakes' at full power and then gradualy 
decreases the power level to the optimum (you would see it as growing 
coverage-bar)

The worst case is when you have signal strength that barely covers the 
minimum - then the handset has to constantly transmit at full power. I'm 
not sure if you can emulate these conditions.
