Hopefully, someday the USA carriers will ditch the CDMA technology and join the rest of the world with GSM (which has about 75% of the world's phones). Then you will be able to use any phone with any carrier.
This line is getting tired. Which major USA CDMA carrier isn't currently in the middle of a transition to the GSM standard? LTE is 4G GSM, and Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular are all in the process of rolling LTE.
