When did the iPhone come with CDMA rather GSM? Does MetroPCS use any phones that are GSM rather than CDMA?

I would suggest reading up a bit on www.metropcs.com, CDMA, GSM, iphone etc.

Take it easy! Not everyone here works in wireless, myself included. I once had a reseller tell me "bluetoog" technology was what talked to the towers from my cell phone to keep me from dropping calls.

You better start doing your homework young man. Your lucky the guys here went pretty easy on ya considering. Had it been any other site, you would have been owned. Seriously.

Wikipedia is your friend. If you get bored and don't want to get too much into the technical aspect of it, at least read the definitions on this page and take it upon yourself to learn which carrier uses what technology and frequency. That way you won't look like a dummy in front of your coworkers and customers.

If you're cons...
