    Just loaded an app called System Monitor. Under Device Info - Connection Support is the following:

    Connection Support

    Wi-Fi : 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi‑Fi with MIMO
    Bluetooth : 4.2
    UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA : YES
    GSM/EDGE : YES
    CDMA EV-DO Rev.A : YES <-- ? Really
    Connector : Lightning

    I purchased my iPhone 7+ from the Apple Store in Altomonte Springs. Florida. The phone is model 1784.

    So, I am guessing this program is wrong. Yes I am on AT&T.

    You are correct. I suspect the app is just displaying static data, not actually reading anything querying hardware, and it has bad info in its database.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but all iPhones come with both GSM and CDMA radios now. The only thing different you're getting by going with AT&T over, say Verizon when choosing the iPhone, is an AT&T SIM card and a network lock.

    That was true with iPhone 6, but not iPhone 7. Apple has two sources for the cellular modem chips, Qualcomm and Intel. Only the Qualcomm device supports CDMA.
