CDMA isn't everywhere, but like GSM it is still growing in coverage. The problem for GSM is that CDMA is in far more places than GSM is. TDMA is currently in second place to CDMA.

Today I had a chance to compare three phones. I had a Nextel, Cingular and AT&T phone. The iDEM did not get any better reception than the GSM phone, yet the TDMA got full strength in an enclosed area. Some day I'll get to compare a CDMA to a TDMA phone. I find that my desk is the best place to compare phone reception at.

Coverage and technology it has a lot to do with who you want to switch to. LNP does not stand on an island all alone. VZW stands to gain more customers than AT&T does when LNP finally hits, and that is mainly due to their claims of having superior coverage.
