Find Out the Many Ways in Which CDMA Phones Fulfill Communications Requirements

CDMA or Code Division Multiple Access, phones help you stay in touch with friends, family, and business contacts. They also double as nifty cameras, sound recorders, mini gaming consoles, mobile hotspots, and GPS devices. Explore the superior service CDMA offers by selecting one of the affordable CDMA phones available on eBay.

What makes CDMA phones unique?

CDMA is one of two major radio systems that most cellular carriers use throughout the world. CDMA predominates in the United States and certain countries in Asia. CDMA utilizes a spread-spectrum technique that begets signals with a wider bandwidth. This higher allocation of data space makes for optimal performance on 3G and 4G networks. That means higher speeds and less congestion whenever you use data and other phone features.

What carriers and brands can you choose from?

North American CDMA carriers include Sprint, Verizon, and Virgin Mobile. However, you must use the carrier that the phone you purchase is "locked" for. You can also purchase an unlocked phone. An unlocked phone lets you choose between CDMA carriers. As for brands, every major brand manufactures several models of CDMA phones that are locked and unlocked. A few examples include:

  • Apple: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S
  • LG: G5 LS992
  • ZTE: Max XL
  • Samsung: Galaxy J7
  • Motorola: Moto G Plus
Are these CDMA phones Bluetooth enabled?

Yes, they are. All of the gently used and new-in-box (NIB) mobile phones available via eBay are Bluetooth enabled, provided they are produced after 2010. Luckily, all of the phones are either a post-2010 model (iPhone 4) or the most recent generation. In these cases, Bluetooth is a standard feature and essential for pairing with an array of wireless headset products and other valuable peripherals. In addition to Bluetooth, other unofficially standard features you can count on finding include:

  • 3G and 4G data capability
  • Wi-Fi and wireless charging
  • Camera (pictures and video)
  • GPS
  • Touchscreen
Which phones have an Android platform?

As a general rule, every phone that isn't an iPhone either has an Android operating system (OS) or a proprietary OS that is Android-compatible, such as the Blackberry OS. However, even recent Blackberry models have an Android OS and not the proprietary Blackberry OS originally intended for such devices. The "iOS" is the OS associated with the iPhone. All phone product descriptions typically identify the OS or software platform associated with the phone in question. Most importantly for users, the type of OS associated with your prospective phone dictates where you buy apps: Google Play sells Android apps, whereas iTunes sells iOS apps.
