    Does anyone know if the 4S will use the CDMA network if the Gsm network is not available. My 4 has a major connection problem to the gsm network in a certain location but I know their CDMA network comes in perfectly, at least on my old berry.

    I have an unresolved ticket open for the connection issue but after a year I doubt it will be fixed anytime soon.

    If this works I will be all over the 4s as I really need to make and receive calls from that location.

    Can someone make my day?

    No. It will be GSM only as far as I know. Bell doesn't really use their CDMA network any more other than a few dumb phones and older hardware that was out before their new GSM network went live.

    Beamed over the interwebz from my iPhone 4S using Siri.

    It will be GSM. It doesn't use CDMA if it's a GSM carrier. The only time it will use CDMA is if you are on a CDMA carrier like sprint or Verizon. Then it uses GSM as the world phone portion.

    click on the tab "specifications", it says


    * UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    * GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    Doesn't UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz) also cover CDMA?

    And I remember iPhone 4S was marketed as a world phone?
