Why are verizon iphones cheaper than unlocked or at&t ones

I've noticed that verizon iphones (same condition) go for cheaper than their gsm counterparts. Any particular reason for this? Is it because of cdma vs gsm?

Pretty much is CDMA vs GSM. At&t( after being unlocked) and unlocked iPhones can be used on any GSM carrier, where a Verizon or Sprint is stuck. Just pop in a sim card and go.
