The issue that I am not having is that it wont connect to the Verizon network.
I think the issue may be that in Mobile Network Settings>CDMA Subscription it is set to NV, and won't let me switch to RUIM/SIM. Another clue is that in the About Phone section, Baseband version is UNKNOWN. Any ideas?
EDIT: Ok, I updated to the latest CM version via the CM update process on the phone. looks like i am now on CM11 and i have network connectivity, though it is 1 bar of 3G. And now the google play store keeps throwing errors so i have to uninstall it.
I thought CM was a polished ROM that I could just install and go. I am now considering going with something else since I still cant get it working right.
You definitely want to be using CM 11! 10.2 is ancient at this point.
As for your problems. First, Sense based ROMs apparently show more bars for the same signal strength. To know if it is actually worse, you need to compare the numeric (db) signal strength. Second, did you also flash a kk gapps package?
I would recommend downloading the latest gapps-kk-* from http://goo.im/gapps
and then in recovery do:
* factory reset
* format /system
* install cm 11 version of your choice (latest nightly or M8)
* install gapps
And see if that makes your life a little better.
