I currently have my phone on Straight Talk network, I am no longer with Verizon and wondering... Do I have to run Verizon ROMs on this phone? Or is it different from, Let's say... AT&T hardware?

Yes you still need to run the Verizon ROM because of the bootloader being locked.

That's a bummer. I'm getting a little irritated with the persistent icon telling me I have a Non-Verizon SIM in my phone. Any ideas of the bootloader will ever be able to be unlocked?

Your guess is as good as mine on the bootloader being unlocked. Time will tell.

If you're rooted, install Xposed and then install the NotifyClean module and get rid of that icon. This is assuming the icon is an ongoing notification...
