Hi all Firstly, I'm in Australia where we use the latest and most current mobile phone network technology - Telstra call it NextG. CDMA in Australia was shut down over 10 years ago as it was not quick enough and a technology that aged quickly and could not keep up with data demands. This really makes me wonder why the USA which proclaims its so technologically advanced, uses such an old and antiquated CDMA phone network. Furthermore, Apple had to re-create the iPhone for the CDMA network - which seems ridiculous just for one provider - Verizon. If Australia phased out and replaced CDMA years ago, why hasn't the US changed as well? Why are Verizon and maybe other's hanging onto such old technology?
