Default [Q] WIND Galaxy s3 = T-Mobile S3 or Verizon S3/ Play store "no connection"

My Galaxy s3 was from WIND in Canada T999V. Which SHOULD make it a d2tmo. However when i try to install 4.4 nightlies of AOKP and Cyanogenmod, they tell me in CWM that my phone is actually a d2vzw. Which is it actually? Is it actually a d2vzw despite the fact that I got it from WIND?

Secondly,both AOKP and Cyanogenmod (even the stable 10.2) boot but the play store doesn't connect and nothing can fix it.
I've tried going into root edit mode and changing the "hosts" file as per another thread, but it wouldn't let me save the changes. I think it might have something to do with the version of Cyanogenmod I installed (maybe the radio got f'ed up?), but i'm not expert and would like to open it up to a forum of experts.

Thank you

There was a discussion a while back about the recovery that you installed in the beginning might not have been a d2tmo, but maybe a d2vzw
