Looks like they are ready for M&A deal and skimming what they can before timing out!

MTS is best in all respect. Cheapest operator in voice.

Like in the West they say, “Show me the money!”… CDMA is like “Show me the handsets!”… Pity, even on ebay we cannot find good basic handsets for CDMA these days… So in India, it seems like… “The hearse car has arrived… but where’s the body, fella?”

Yes, our family still has one mts number for voice but the handset needs to change….

For basic phone good CDMA handsets are available in Flipkart, Snapdeal, Amazon. 1800 mah battery with one cdma and gsm slot.
Single sim CDMA is also available.

Totally agree with Sachin.HTC has some high end CDMA handsets costing 30k+.So better search properly before commenting @Agnivo

Like in India they say “Dhoondne se bhagwan bhi mil jate hain”, a quick Google search will land you to Snapdeal, shopclues, amazon, eBay with all the CDMA Handsets.
Samsung, Haier, Micromax, HTC all manufacture CDMA handsets and you can get a range of CDMA phones – feature phones to smartphones starting from Rs 1500 to as high as 30,000.
