    Verizion and Sprit are CDMA old technology and only used in the USA and and Parts of latin america.
    ATT and Tmobile are GSM used most of the world. Litttle humor ( My friend is a retire executives of Verizon and we talked about this a\several times. He said why Verizon should change when American will pay top dollars for this. And it would cost hundreds of billion to change.
    with the iPhone 4S it runs on both CDMA and GSM. Dual radios/antennae.

    Without good coverage the phone is useless.. So go with who ever has the best coverage in your area..

    ATT has the best coverage where I am at as well as having the best international coverage.

    I say Verizon.

    CDMA for Verizon gets very good coverage in the US. Plus, if you're a good customer, they'll unlock the GSM for your 4S free and you can use local GSM card when you travel abroad.

    So Verizon is the best option to use your 4S as a world phone

    Coverage being equal, AT&T. There's still time to join a different carrier later for LTE as an LTE iphone would be a new ballgame.

    I have to disagree with you on that. I travel internationaly a lot for work, and a couple of my co-workers have VZW and they don't have coverage in a fair amount of places that ATT does.. Maybe its because we travel to areas that are not tourist or heavily populated areas.

    On the GSM side of the 4S, both of them should work universally on the same frequency bands so really they should both be the same, and I imagine as the point is that they would be using a local sim anyway it's effectively acting like it were a local phone.

    Are you guys roaming internationally? Buying a local prepaid SIM is cheaper, usually.

    Yep, like I said in my post earlier, I'm talking about buying a local SIM card to use in your iphone. Which, if I understand correctly, AT&T does not allow for their iPhone 4s, Verizon does, after you get them to unlock your phone for you.

    If you can find a microsim. I've got that problem here, none of the Afghanistan carriers use microsims.

    All you need is a SIM cutter, you can get one from Amazon for under $5. And it'll cut any regular sized SIM card into microSIM to fit your iphone 4/4S/iPad
