Default [Q] change apn

I recently bought 2 - Verizon Samsung galaxy s3's. I coverted both of them to straight talk and the one phone I have absolutely no problems with. Mobile data is a little slow but from what I've read that's pretty common. I followed the exact same steps for the second phone and I cannot get the mobile data to work. When I go in to change and create a new apn I CAN"T. It should have the LTE-Verizon apn grayed out and then I should be able to create the new apn but NOTHING shows up. No LTE-Verizon apn and it doesn't give me the option to create a new apn.

How can I change the apn on this phone so that I can use the mobile data?

Do I have to root this phone?

If I root it do I have to unlock the bootloader in order to root it?

Is there a way to change the apn settings and create a new apn without rooting or unlocking the bootloader?

Do you have a simm in both phones? You need to to have them the same.
Once you install a simm you should be able to do what you want.

yes I do and both phones can make calls. I need to find a way to change the apn on the one phone. It only shows a restore to default when I hit the menu button. Verizon - lte greyed out apn isn't there either
