alasta: It could be argued that the majority of existing GSM operators will eventually migrate to WCDMA (or UMTS as it tends to be called these days), which will tip the scales considerably in the coming years.
Eventually being the keyword. People take in account current, not future trends. 

It depends on what you mean by 'people'. Certainly consumers are only interested in what services are available here and now, but telcos won't invest significant sums in technology that doesn't have a long term future. Telecom's upgrade to EVDO Rev A, for example, suggests that they are committed to CDMA technology for at least another couple of years.

Take for example your username. It is a clear indication of a trollish behaviour, isn't it?

Is it possible to change your Geekzone user name? If so maybe this option should be given to this user and others who let their emotions define their username??

I'm not into forcing anyone to do anything, but even I who hasn't been around very long on these forums have come across a few of these 'trollish' names.

I'm just asking the question more out of interest, that’s all....

Yes, if the name is not taken, just contact me and we can change it. It's been done in the past.
