    Other XS XS MAX (CDMA) VS (GSM) ??

I called apple and the customer service rep was not sure of the difference. This leads me to believe that the phones purchased...

No matter GSM or CDMA, Sprint, or Verizon, these iPhone models will work on...

    I want to get an iPhone 7 Plus through the Upgrade program. I want the Verizon model with CDMA because I plan to doing extended international travel. Apple tells me that by "Apple policy" I cannot signup for an iPhone 7 without having an existing account with one of the providers (except...

    GSM only iPhone 7 will not support LTE networks in China/Hong Kong.

    From looking at the iPhone 7 LTE band support, only the CDMA versions (Verizon and Sprint) of the iPhone 7 will have LTE support in China and Hong Kong. The CDMA version adds TD-SCDMA 1900 and 2000 bands. Only more reason to pick up the CDMA model over the GSM only one.

    No AWS-3 (Band 66) support in the iPhone 7

    It seems that there is no AWS-3 Band 66 support in the new iPhone 7. Any ideas as to why Apple may have left this out? Both AT&T have a lot of AWS-3 spectrum with AT&T having a nationwide contiguous footprint. Sources: Fortune Apple: Model A1660* Model A1661* FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...
