    -->Exactly. Speaking from Verizon experience, I haven't seen any area of
    theirs, where they have not used AMPS or CDMA and not used 'power control'.
    It benefits battery life as well as sound quality of the end user(s).

    It's not like it's and "add-on" option the carriers have to buy, nor am I
    sure you can even turn it off if you wanted to.

    Others posted the power issue, but digital and analog DO NOT need
    different transceivers (complete) and share antennae. It's just how
    fractions of the frequency allotment (channels) are used.

    AMPS is divided into a number of channels, CDMA just uses several of these
    channels (portion of the transceiver and system's bandwidth). Only the
    modulator/demodulator methods vary. A number of channels treated as CDMA
    and a ever decreasing number allocated as AMPS.
