Default Verizon SIM on international Note 3

Hi,

I just moved to the US and have a German Note 3 which is free for all carriers. My employer gave me a Verizon SIM to be used while being in the US.
I cannot activate the phone with the SIM and Verizon tells it won't work since the phone is not a Verizon Note 3.

Is there any way to flash the phone with a Verizon firmware or open it to a Verizon SIM in another way?

The phone does not have the region lock from Samsung anymore since I have used it in Germany for a month with a local provider.

Thanks much
Torsten

Can't be done. Verizon variant has different radios and Verizon won't activate non-Verizon devices on their network anyway.
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.
