Hi, I live in the US and have a Sprint CDMA phone. Can I use something that interferes with both GPS and A-GPS and can still make calls? Would I be better off with a GSM phone?

Indeed you can. If you want to interfere with A-GPS but still want to talk on your phone, you need to use a GPS jammer. This device is blocking all GPS signals in its work area so the A-GPS module on your Sprint CDMA phone will not work. Even if the A-GPS module starts to work, it is completely useless without a GPS signal to find your location, and A-GPS only speeds up the process.
As for the phone, I would recommend that you continue to use your CDMA phone as GSM phones often combine the A-GPS modules with GSM modules into one unit. So if you interrupt the work of A-GPS, there may be communication problems. CDMA phones don't have such a problem. If you make your A-GPS module unusable without GPS signals, you can make calls, write text messages, etc.
