will battery life be better if I disable GSM?

I'm on Verizon, and I'm wondering: will battery life be better if I turn off GSM in the phone options? I don't need it 99.9% of the time; will it actually help battery life or is it irrelevant when a CDMA network is around?

Mike

I tested it for a couple days. It did nothing for me

I am "meh" about the GSM thing. I keep mine on CDMA only. If I get to close to the Canadanadian border or Mexico, I could roam off an International tower without knowing and get charged a LOT.
