Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

WCDMA is the standard that most GSM carriers moved to when upgrading to 3G. Parts of the WCDMA standard are based on GSM technology. WCDMA networks are designed to integrate with GSM networks at certain levels. Most WCDMA phones include GSM as well, for backward compatibility.

I.e it has the same settings as GSM so use the same settings

    Hello

    Yes GSM has 2G technology where WCDMA has improved 2G technology  ( known as 3G) but not amalgamated with CDMA
