3G (in context of GSM) == UMTS, the successor to GSM. In nearly all cases*, a UMTS phone also contains GSM, as most UMTS network providers have yet to match the full coverage of their GSM networks.
3G (in context of CDMA) == EV-DO, an upgrade to the CDMA2000 standard (much like GPRS-EDGE for GSM, but from 2.5G to 3G)

*The edge cases being mostly Asian countries like Japan (PDC) and South Korea (CDMA)
