Originally, the acronym GSM stood for Groupe Spécial Mobile, a group formed by the Conference of European Posts and Telegraphs (CEPT) in 1982 to research the merits of a European standard for mobile telecommunications. Commercial service using the GSM system did not actually start until 1991. Instead of using analog service, GSM was developed as a digital system using TDMA technology.

Definition: The most common and most recent digital cellular technology in North America. What differentiate CDMA from other phone technologies is that in order to carry many conversations over one frequency, it sends all communications in groups of bits mixed altogether, but tags each group, belonging to a specific communication, with a different code (CDMA stands for &Code Division Multiple Access&). Therefore, at the other end, each communication can be rebuilt in the correct order, based on the unique codes attached to certain groups of bits.
Alternate Spellings: CDMA stands for &Code Division Multiple Access&
Common Misspellings: Don't misplace it with TDMA, which is another digital cellular technology.

Can I use my Droid with at


If you're referring to any of the units in the actual "Droid" line of cell phones, no, they can not be used with AT&T. The "Droid" phones are configured to use CDMA networks, such as Verizon, and do not have the radio nor a SIM card slot necessary to connect to AT&T's GSM based network.
If however you're using the generic term Droid for any Google Android phone, you have about a 50/50 chance that it's a GSM model and not CDMA, as described above.

My nokia c7 phone shows sim card registration failed whenever i insert a CDMA sim. The manual says it supports WCDMA. Please help


The SIM registration failed because Nokia C7 is not a CDMA phone. It is GSM phone.
Also, WCDMA is different from CDMA. In simple terms, WCDMA is a 3G technology for GSM connections just like EVDO in a 3G technology for CDMA phones.
So you have to buy a GSM connection.

One cellphone for cdma and gsm both the connection.


As far as I know there's no device supporting CDMA/GSM yet. Although some GSM phones are tri&quad bands is nothing to do with it. The CDMA is totally different system as GSM. Let say comparing diesel engine with petrol engine.
