Personally? I doubt it. Too common an issue in here to be just a bad SIM. But Teir 2 Support did tell me (whether it's true or not is up for dispute, of course) that too much ghost dialing can actually FRY the SIM, since all updates to Nexus supposedly come OTA.
If your phone is calling out every single day, it sounds like there is a serious issue, though.

You may want to call Verizon, though, and explain the situation. They may issue a new SIM... or they may suggest something else. Don't know what, since youre already reset the phone and uninstalled suspect apps...
Well, I had disabled JuiceDefender, that didn’t help.
Then I uninstalled it, and the next day, it dialed it again. I still factory reset the phone, and I reinstalled my applications. I figured, it couldn’t be the JuiceDefender application, because it still called while it had been uninstalled.
So, I was cool for a while, but it suddenly dialed the number again (3 days in a row).
So, this morning, I called Verizon, and the lady told me that her co-worker had the same thing happen in her phone (she doesn’t have JuiceDefender), and she toggled her Airplane Mode, and it never happened to her again.
The woman will call me in the morning to see if it happened tomorrow morning, and if it does, they will send me a new SIM Card.
It’s very odd. My wife, mother, and step-father all have the same phone, with JuiceDefender, and it never happened (so far as they know) to any of them.
I mean, my wife lives with me, and she turns her phone on each morning in the same room. We both drive to work in the same direction, yet, it has never happened to her…?
I know, Dankees, it's bizarre. But there are a couple of threads (actually, I think I merged them) on this very subject. So you're definitely not the only one with the issue. I really have no idea why some phones do it and others don't.
After 20+ years in electronics, however, I have learned that it is NOT an exact science. Electrons are going to do what they are going to do, sometimes much to our surprise and - on a few occasions - much to our dismay.
If Airplane Mode doesn't do the trick, I will lay money on Verizon sending a new SIM out for you. And if THAT doesn't fix it? Then you & I have very talkative Nexi

OK, I put the SIM in. It activated for like 2 minutes. It never said that it was successful, nor did a voice say it was. It just dialed that number and there was music for two minutes. My PRL has a version of 52686, just like earlier.
You need a new phone as your battery problems are clearly related to your connectivity issues, both data and wifi. I don't believe a new SIM will help since you are having issues with Wifi staying connected too.

Well, luckily, it didn't happen this morning. Although, my battery was draining rather rapidly while I was using the phone. I did notice, however, that in my bedroom (in the upstairs of my home), my cell phone connection isn't all that great, but it did improve (minimally) when I left the room, but remained on the same floor.
