    There's LOTS of information on the protocols up on wikipedia (www.wikipedia.com)
    AT&T and T-Mobile are the major US GSM carriers, Verizon and Sprint are the major US CDMA carriers. The vast majority of the world is using GSM technologies - only about a half dozen CDMA carriers with significant numbers of subscribers. (Here in Canada, we have Bell and Telus for CDMA, only Rogers for GSM).
    Extensions of the protocols - GSM is GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSPA and eventually LTE. GSM is the evolution of TDMA. CDMA is EVDO (CDMA2000).
    Virtually all of Europe is GSM (which is why for a CDMA carrier to have a worldphone - like the 8830, they have to put a GSM radio in it along with the CDMA radio).
