I'm trying to compile a list of official iPhone carriers that use CDMA. By that I mean official iPhone carriers that sell and activate the CDMA version of iPhone 4 and/or iPhone 4S. This does not include carriers that run both HSPA and CDMA networks, but only sell and activate the HSPA version of iPhone 4 and/or iPhone 4S, such as Bell, Telus, MTS, and SaskTel in Canada. I believe Iusacell in Mexico falls in the same category, but I'm not 100% sure on that.
I am a little confused. My Verizon phone was able to roam on GSM because they used TDMA. Tell it was shutdown. The phone recognizes it as Analog. If PCS has TDMA, It could be technically be used on GSM.

You do know that cdma isn't portable like gsm, right? You can't just start using another cdma carrier. You're going to roam using that cdma carrier under verizon's/sprint's rates.
You're better off getting verizon/sprint doing an international unlock and using gsm carriers when abroad.

You should be able to find that infomation on Verizon's website.
Why would Verizon list other iPhone carriers on their web site?
Maybe I misunderstood the OP's question. Is this about foreign carriers that an iPhone can roam on in CDMA mode (there's a lot of those), or is it about foreign carriers that sell and activate the CDMA version of iPhone 4/4S (there's very few of those)?
Last month saw six small U.S. carriers begin offering the iPhone for the first time, and it appears that another round of expansion to similar carriers is coming on May 18. Three new iPhone carriers, all operating CDMA networks, have rolled out their announcements so far today:
- Bluegrass Cellular (Kentucky)
- Golden State Cellular (California)
- Nex-Tech Wireless (Kansas)
