Clarification: CDMA vs GSM


Nov 9, 2007, 6:33 PM
I have my eye on LG's new VX10000 (Voyager) phone, but noticed that it's CDMA (800/1900 MHz). I'm currently with Rogers which uses GSM (1900 MHz). I'm wondering if this means that I can use the LG Voyager on Rogers since the phone is 1900 MHz and Rogers uses 1900 MHz although it's GSM and the phone is CDMA.

...I hope that made sense.

Nope, not possible at all...kinda like a PC vs. Apple...the do the same thing using different operating systems...

Thats like trying to use a betamax tape in a VHS vcr. Actually a better analogy is thats like trying use a CD ROM of MAC software on a Windows PC. Just because its a CD-ROM doesnt mean whats on it can be read by your machine.
Likewise, jJust because the phones use the same frequency doesnt mean anything, the digital coding they use is totaly different.
