Depends on the country. Latin Americas and parts of Asia have had more CDMA than GSM, not sure about now. Newer phones do both CDMA/GSM so doesn't matter.

I can't think of a single central or south American country I've been to that used CDMA. For sure Asia. But none of Europe or any of the Americas.

Yeah I've used CDMA in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Chile over the years. Don't think it worked in Peru if I recall, at least where I was. I think Mexico dropped CDMA a few years ago, others might have. It doesn't matter anymore given most newish phones can do either GSM/CDMA...
