GSM equals Global System for Mobile Communications; popular
largely in Europe and other parts of the world, it has made
inroads here in the United States and has gained quite a bit
of grounds with TMobile and AT&T as the leading adoptors.
Some Verizon phones support both GSM and CDMA technologies
and they are thus referred to as world phones. GSM
technology, unlike CDMA, uses the SIM card.
With GSM, if the phone is unlocked, moving a phone number
from one phone to another is analogous to a plug-&-play in
that one can take out a SIM card from one phone and insert
into another and you'll have service instantly.
One can't do this with CDMA phones!
