There are basically two main differences.

1. The main difference between CDMA and GSM version is the Micro-SIM card. GSM model has it attached with the antenna whereas CDMA model don’t have it. This difference is because the CDMA model don’t need to save the users’s data in the SIM. In CDMA version, the data of user is hosted on board.

2. Another difference is the CDMA model has an extra antenna like iPhone 4.
