    Is it code division or some type of time division? What is unique about it? What frequency does it use?

    IDEN is not CDMA...code division multiple access. It is a protocol based on GSM that is used mainly by Nortel.

    That is correct although Nextel (not nortel, sorry), is making dual mode phones which will be both iDEN and GSM compatible.
