Of course not. if you have a GSM phone it won´t work on CDMA networks.
WCDMA and CDMA are not the same.
WCDMA is the 3G connection for GSM networks.
CDMA is CDMA network.
I think this trick do not speed up your connection. Because Setting your phone up to WCDMA "only" or "prefered" will only give preferred or exclusive access to 3G/HSDPA/HSPA networks.
your speed depends on network type (EDGE, 3G, HSDPA, HSPA, LTE, etc), network trafic congestion, etc.
As you can see in my signature I got 6.67Mbps that time, I usually got between 2-4Mb. but in some other towns I got very low speed on the same type of network (3G) or even on higher speed network sucks a HSDPA.
