Use of CDMA SIM card in Bold 9930

I know it is possible for a GSM SIM card work in a BlackBerry Bold 9930. Is it possible for a CDMA SIM card to work in a 9930? If so, could someone please share with me.

Technically, there is no such thing as a CDMA nor GSM SIM card. There are SIM cards, and there are not. CDMA or GSM is a function of the radio that is physically built into the device, not a function of the SIM card.

Good luck!
