It was announced today that the Government has approved the closure of the Telstra CDMA mobile phone network on the 28th April 2008. If you still have a CDMA phone (I did until last Friday) you need to look at replacing it pronto. It was pointed out in a recent press release that many out there may not realise they actually have a CDMA phone as they look the same as a GSM phone so here are the easy ways to pick a CDMA phone; If it has Telstra CDMA on the screen it's a CDMA phone Open up the back and pull out the battery, if there isn't a SIM Card then it's probably a CDMA phone. I had a CDMA phone which I only used when in areas of bugger all GSM coverage and I reckon a few of you may also have a CDMA tucked away somewhere. If you are getting a Next G phone make sure it's a Next G phone and not a standard 3G phone which reverts to GSM outside of the capital cities.
