    Hi there,

    If it circles around coverage concerns, Sprint will basically be starting back from stratch if they reverted to the GSM technology.

    CDMA carriers will most likely NOT go to GSM. A conversion of this nature would actually be a downgrade; CDMA is more advanced than GSM if you consider the protocol itself--the implementation is not however. If they had designed CDMA to use removable SIMs and used its advantages for call quality instead of quantity of subscribers, it believe it will blow GSM out of the water hands down.
    ...and yes, I've done a search!

    well I wont comment on CDMA being better since I am a GSM fan

    But I do agree that the lack of SIM capability does suck. I think that that with the cdma2000 upgrades they (SIMs) will enter into CDMA.
