GSM also included a very powerful set of features above that, and included some interesting features not directly associated with the RF link, such as a personality module which contained a customer's phone number and billing information that could be moved to another phone any time the customer wished to.
GSM was clearly superior to IS-136 or such abortions as IDEN (a Motorola design which never became an industry standard because Moto was never willing to license it, which meant that systems which adopted it could only get infrastructure and handsets from Motorola).
GSM has many features which are marvelous, but they can eventually be grafted onto IS-95 and CDMA2K, because they're all implemented at high protocol levels or don't have anything to do with the RF link.

 GSM Interception   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
GSM was one of the first digital mobile phone systems to follow the analog era.
Widely known problems with GSM's analog counter parts were the possibility of phone fraud through cloning phones and thus calling in someone else's expense, and the possibility of someone intercepting the phone call over the air and eavesdropping on the discussion.
The GSM system was supposed to correct these problems by implementing strong authentication between the MS and the MSC, as well as implementing strong data encryption for the over-the-air transmission channel between the MS and the BTS.
