    So the way a iPhone 4 is for Verizon is its a unified radio. However, the GMS bands are not activated. This ends up saving Apple money because they can just use that radio in all the models rather than having to manufacture the specific CDMA radios.

    Now a global phone at Verizon has both CDMA and GSM. However with these, only the CDMA will work within the United States. The GSM is there strictly for when you're outside of the US since only Sprint and Verizon use CDMA.

    So, for the OP, he's with the rest of us praying to the Gods of webOS that magically the Pre 3 will appear for Verizon/Sprint. It would be awesome if HP in their last breath of webOS hardware could get that to us and push out a couple updates to make sure its running great and then they can dump webOS to whoever wants it.

    On November 27, 2007, Verizon Wireless announced plans to allow all cell phones compatible with their CDMA technology to run on their network. Users of such phones are also allowed to use any application they wish.

    Unfortunately, that still leaves out the Pre3 as it's not a CDMA phone.

    It leaves out the current Pre3's in the EU. We know they had a CDMA version of the Pre3. What we don't know is how many if any were made for Verizon.

    Actually the CDMA version has an HSPA radio with 900/2100, just not 1900. They can unlock and sell them as Euro versions.
