Now I thought that because it is CDMA I could NOT switch from one CDMA carrier to another and continue to use a CDMA phone from another CDMA carrier.
Yes, there are contract issues with switching from GSM carriers - nothing changes regarding contracts between carriers. However there is a greater choice and flexibilty with GSM phone, not to mention Global acceptance (I could start a rant about why we americans continue to be non-metric in measurements, but that I'll save for another time) - true world phones.
However, being on Verizon I really have to say that personally it is the most reliable signal with no dropped calls - much more that I could hvae ever said for T-Mo and more than my friends can say for ATT (aka Cing). The connection is fast as well, so I'm stuck with waiting for Verizon to finally put the 6800 (WM6) out - sigh...
