Simply so, can you switch a GSM phone to CDMA?
US Mobile is a GSM carrier. In general, anunlocked GSM phone from AT&T and T-Mobile will work oneach other's networks. Older phones from Verizon and Sprint,on the CDMA network, don't operate with a SIM card. Thatbasically means that those phones are restricted andcan't be used on another CDMA networks.
Also, what does GSM and CDMA unlocked mean? All GSM devices are designed so thatservice is provisioned using a SIM card. With an unlockeddevice, a GSM smartphone can be reprovisioned andused on another network simply by popping out the old SIM card andputting in a new one from the new carrier. EV-DO is the 3Gtechnology used on CDMA networks.
