With CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon, you have to use their carrier specific phones. So in the case of your friend, they have to get a Verizon S4.

Any cdma s4 will work on prepaid service such as page plus. Only a verizon model will work with verizon postpaid. If 4g/lte is not important but coverage is, go with page plus. It's a whole lot cheaper.

PM for flashing info if you decide to go that route.
Page Plus Flashing - True 3G (evdo)
Free Page Plus Ports/Activation - PM for more info

Vzw Samsung S4 - Page Plus
