frank ma, no it is not. Different technology, different circuitry. You either have a CDMA or a GSM phone, but you cannot convert those.

To switch to GSM, you need:

A new MLB, since there is no "CDMA" unit, everything has been consolidated into a single board,

A new case, since the MLB size, connectors and screw holes are different.

A new display, since the cases are different,

And many other minor parts, since the cases are different.

So you need to buy a new phone because almost every single component is different and not interchangeable in any way.
