Default [Q] switched to verizon

I recently switched to Verizon, my previous phone was a ATT Galaxy s4. Can I unlock the ATT galaxy s4 and have it work on Verizon network?

Unfortunately no. AT&T has a completely locked bootloader from what I understand, and as of now can't be unlocked for use with another carrier.

Sim unlock and bootloader unlock are two entirely different things. You can sim unlock. You might have to buy a sim unlock code.

that's right! lol duh me. If i remember correctly you will need a sim unlock code...and to get that you have to have been an AT&T customer for I believe 90 days. Then just give them a call and request a code or do it online maybe.
