Sorry if this isn't even actually what's happening, but the jist I get is that this new Verizon iPhone that may come out is going to be CDMA. In New Zealand, they don't sell CDMA phones any more because they're shutting down the CDMA network later this year (maybe even next year); but it's being superseded by GSM 3G. I thought America would be ~ 50 years ahead of NZ and already would have gotten rid of CDMA. Another thing, I thought Verizon would be looking to go to 4G in the near future, and I'm just not seeing the point of why Apple may bring out a CDMA phone. Can someone please enlighten me? Once again, from NZ, so I am highly likely missing some important facts. Cheers.
