Try to Odin to stock MF1 firmware and then update to 4.3. Just remember if you take the 4.3 OTA it will permanently lock your bootloader and you can not downgrade from 4.3.

In the OP he wrote he is using an AT&T sim card. Wouldn't that prevent him from being able to get the Verizon OTA? Like The Pagel wrote, using the ODIN file to get to 4.3 would probably be your best bet.
Shouldn't we treat this world like the garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

You need to install the driver for your PC before Odin can work, here is the instruction:
