Can unlocked iPhone be used with Sprint?

Generally, these days, phones that can be moved from system to system are GSM phones. Phones that are sold by Sprint and Verizon are not GSM - or they are not GSM on their home systems. The iPhone uses GSM. The system that Sprint uses is NOT GSM, so a GSM only phone like the iPhone won't work on Sprint, period, end of story. Sprint will sell you an "International Phone" that will work as a Sprint phone in the US and will switch to GSM when you are in an area that Sprint is not in and GSM is in. Like Europe, for example. In some countries, all cell phones use the same system. When cell phones were first introduced in the US many years ago, that was true here. There were two systems, and you paid full price for a cell phone and you could transfer it from system to system. Eventually that changed; phones were locked into systems, and incompatible systems were introduced. But then much of the rest of the world standardized on GSM and AT&T changed from the analog/digital system they were using here to the GSM system. In the US, national carriers that use GSM are AT&T and T-Mobile.


What is the difference between CDMA cell phones and gsm cell phones Can you put the gsm sim card to the CDMA phon?

Okay the different for CDMA (es verizonwireless and sprint) and GSM (at&t) is that they work off of two different wavelengths. no, you can NOT put a GSM sim card into a CDMA phone because CDMA phones do not have places for sim cards. The only ones that do are Global phones, and for it to be a global phone it has to be able to work off of GSM and CDMA...

Can a Blackberry Pearl 8100 with an unlocked GSM sim card work on a Rogers plan?

There are two types of cell phone networks, GSM and CDMA. As long as the network you are trying to move your unlocked phone to is compatible then yes it will work. In most cases a GSM phone will not work on a CDMA network and vise versa, however, some careers (such as Verizon) have support signals for GSM phones. There is no support for CDMA phones on a GSM network at this time. So for overall versatility, GSM phones are better.
