    Its definitely not worth it.CDMA tower is definitely better comparatively except TATA INDICOM.But RIM is nothin compared 2 Android which is definitely the future market leader.D set lacks features. 5 mp cam,2.7″ display,a good 4 nothin exterior screen and a flip qwerty 4 24k.Must be kiddin me.Better go with android based HTC n Samsung if u like software updates or go 4 high priced SonyErrison,Lg or others if u want no updates.Either CDMA or GSM,BB aint d way 2 go.Even features less than HTC WILDFIRE. It rocks n so does CDMA!

    Why are/ were clamshell/ flip phones never popular in India unlike US? Back before the iphone most Americans had a flip phone (motorola takes credit for that I guess)

    Hey, I have seen comments regarding both Rcom and Tata not being serious in their CDMA ventures. Also MTS is relatively new to the scene. It has very less spectrum (2.5 MHZ).

    Is it really worth switching from GSM to CDMA?
