I been using CDMA for about 5years now.
Guess what both systems are fine, HOWEVER, GSM yes it's global but, how many of you REALLY travel outside the country, let alone the city, enough times to validate GSM service?
GSM phnoes have more toys - better mp3 player capabilities and ringtones, and just overall better selection of phones.
But did you buy an mp3 player to play music? or a phone to communicate?
Best analogy of GSM - in a room full of people imagine everyone trying to have a conversation with each other, but instead of saying full sentences, everyone said one word at a time, until everyone said their one word. Then it would start back at the first person and say his second word, and so on.
CDMA, in a room full of people (double or even triple the amount of people i might add), imagine everyone talking to each other, but in a different language at the same time.
Anyways coverage is much better with CDMA 110 kms versus GSM 35kms.
Do a search, each have their own pros/cons.
As much as I want a kick ass phone with a lot of toys. Ill stick with my coverage, so I won't get a lot of dropped calls.
America is behind in cellular technology? If that were the case why is Qualcomm(based in Cali) such a strong leader and force to be messed with in cellular technology.
You think people got stupid all of a sudden just didn't know what to do anymore and stopped progressing?
Try to get a job with one of these companies and see if you get one, it's not easy. There are smart people working on these things and I have a pretty good idea that they know what they're doing
