    I have TMO now so it would have to be GSM, but I am getting a company phone and they have Verizon so I have the chance to get their Pearl 2. Is that any good as I have the Pearl 1 now? I played around with it in the store and it's not that impressive over the original Pearl.

    Re: pearl 8100 vs 8120 vs 8130

    I had the original Pearl with T-Mobile about two years ago. The 8130 has a few things going for it, such as GPS (with VZ Navigator) and better SureType. However, some of those may be software related. The 2MP camera is nice. Also, I'd rather have GPS over widi' but CDMA also has great speed and penetration with EVDO.

    Yeah I'm running the 4.3 OS on my Pearl 8100 right now so I'm familiar with the new features. Overall it's better, but not a humongous difference.

    I was just being sarcastic. Now re-reading what was written I can see how it can be taken as harsh.

    Sorry guys. I didn't mean it.

    Try this thread, but please do read the entire (VERY long thread) because people have discovered some issues with this version.

    Sorry if this has been answered but I don't understand the difference between GSM and CDMA?

    Re: pearl 8100 vs 8120 vs 8130

    GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications). GSM is the “branded” term referring to a particular use of TDMA (Time-Division Multiple Access) technology. GSM is the dominant technology used around the globe and is available in more than 100 countries. It is the standard for communication for most of Asia and Europe. GSM operates on four separate frequencies: You’ll find the 900MHz and 1,800MHz bands in Europe and Asia and the 850MHz and 1,900MHz (sometimes referred to as 1.9GHz) bands in North America and Latin America. GSM allows for eight simultaneous calls on the same radio frequency and uses “narrowband” TDMA, the technology that enables digital transmissions between a mobile phone and a base station. With TDMA the frequency band is divided into multiple channels which are then stacked together into a single stream, hence the term narrowband. This technology allows several callers to share the same channel at the same time.

    CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access). CDMA takes an entirely different approach from GSM/TDMA. CDMA spreads data out over the channel after the channel is digitized. Multiple calls can then be overlaid on top of one another across the entire channel, with each assigned its own “sequence code” to keep the signal distinct. CDMA offers more efficient use of an analog transmission because it allows greater frequency reuse, as well as increasing battery life, improving the rate of dropped calls, and offering far greater security than GSM/TDMA. For this reason CDMA has strong support from experts who favor widespread development of CDMA networks across the globe. Currently, you will find CDMA mostly in the United States, Canada, and North and South Korea. (As an interesting aside, CDMA was actually invented for the military during World War II for field communications.)

    For ppl who havnt buy a pearl yet, buy Pearl 2. Despite of its obvious advantages over 8100, it also has a fast USB sideloading speed. So you can transfer songs, videos and files from your PC faster to BB pearl 2. The difference is pretty noticeable.

    Goto techonline, and search article "under the hood". It compares sideloading speed between BB pearl 2, iPhone, and W910.
