I have put a card, but it has never happened that I have GSM and no CDMA. When I am in the desert in places like eastern Wyoming, there's usually an alltel signal, but no GSM for hours. So it would not help there. Between Alltel and VErizon, they have most of the places with little signal covered, which GSM carriers do not, not much money to be made there. The other issue is that that once it switche to GSM, it will stay there unless you force it to go back to CDMA, so you would use up all your prepaid. I had this issue when I was trying it. But when it ran out of GSM it did switch back to CDMA, but only if I had it in Automatic, which gets you stuck at 1x rTTs speed. Verizon bought AllTell (thanks FCC for allowing even less competition), and Sprint has roaming agreement, so if there's no Sprint signal, we can use a Verizon/AllTell CDMA signal.
