well you are right partially, CDMA phones will drain your battery if you are roaming. GSM dont do that. but in USA CDMA/TDMA is the better choice for south eastern states because of the topography. GSM sinals do not have that much strength in mountains or valleys. Since CDMA use a lower frequency most of the time it will work on mountians/valleys. GSM is used over almost 95% of the world. only a small percentage use CDMA in other counries.

Lower frequencies???
GSM 1900 operates at 1.9GHz
CDMA 1900 operates at 1.9 GHz
GSM 800 operates at 800 MHz
CDMA 800 operates at 800 MHz
If you use Verizon you are using CDMA 800, Sprint CDMA 1900, Cingular GSM 800, T mobile GSM 1900, so what are talking about lower frequency??
