No. CDMA will only work of you buy and activate your 4S device onto a CDMA carrier. The FAQ shows that when you activate the phone it will choose one technology for coverage in country. GSM Registered phones will roam on GSM as will CDMA phones. Sprint should work in 35 unnamed countries and Verizon in 40 at launch.

Indeed, Apple cannot provide you such information and they do not either unlock iPhones.

CDMA isn't something you can self enroll unless your carrier lets you enter that information into a web portal or other self-service kiosk.

If you have a GSM iPhone, you'll only be able to unlock it and move it between cell companies using GSM. This article gives some additional info on the topic...
