You make no factual sense. CDMA handles data better then GSM was the reason Verizon stuck with it. GSM was the standard for the most of the world so AT&T jumped on the wagon. It was basically no BIG benefit of going either way. It was just preference and hope that which ever way your company went was going to become the standard. Which non became the US standard, US has no Standard and even with LTE will be no standard. GSM has nothing to do with them dropping calls. Its the Mgh/ radio frequency that each company uses that helps the drop call ratio not the cdma VS GSM. Sprints waves go further and verizons simply penetrate through material better such has basements and buildings, and thats due to the frequency radios they use.
and last but not least, LTE IS NOT GSM.
