You should have been around in the '90s when the replacement technology for AMPS was being debated. The advantage of CDMA was supposed to be better spectrum efficiency, better ability to handle multipath (a problem with AMPS), and the ability to do handoffs between AMPS and CDMA. There was a lot of Qualcomm money involved in buying off carriers and politicians too.
