    So I just bought an HTC Desire off of ebay... I've been doing some research and some websites say that the Desire is GSM... Which means that it won't work with Verizon, correct? But other websites state that the Desire is CDMA... Which will work - so what's the truth?

    Let me correct myself... I will be using pageplus, and I just found another site that says the phone is HSDPA

    Here's a site which lists the specs of the phone including the type of radios it uses: HTC Desire - Full phone specifications

    I'm not sure if pageplus uses HSDPA, but I know for a fact it won't work on Verizon. You'll have to see what pageplus uses to confirm whether it'll work or not.
