kinda silly question about iPhone 5 battery

Hi everyone! My iPhone 5 arrived today and I couldn't wait to try it but I forgot about the nano sim thing, so I can't activate my phone just yet. My question is, you're supposed to exhaust the battery the first time you turn the phone on, so shall I just leave it on like this, with no usage, or shall I turn it off and exhaust it once I have a sim card? Silly question but I'm ocd about battery calibration haha. Thanks in advance!

PS: this thing looks GORGEOUS!

It won't matter as long as you drain it. Even then, it's not really necessary.

thanks for the replies!! well I guess I'll just leave it on standby then until it gets drained on its own. such a shame I have to wait for the card to arrive to enter the os though
