CDMA networks are limited to USA only. They are also much more difficult to port to another carrier (chances are your phone is locked to Sprint for life, unless you do some heavy mojo to change it) GSM network devices can swap SIM cards to adapt to anywhere in the world as long as they are unlocked.

misinformation. Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, South Korea, and a few other places have CDMA carriers. Granted nowhere near the amount of GSM carriers out there.

The only carrier that gives you difficulty porting phones to their network is Sprint. Almost every other US CDMA carrier will allow you to port a phone to their network, and will even help you. For the Touch Pro / Diamond, there are multiple guides on this forum to port from Sprint to other carriers.
