Default Is the GSM radio unlocked?

Is the gsm radio in the note 3 for verizon unlocked or locked? I am on verizon right now and can buy a note 3 from my friend for $500 in box, but I want to leave for strait talk when my contract is up in november. Can the phone be unlocked to work on any gsm network I know it has international but verizon has been known to lock out specifically US carriers.

This Verizon note 3 is very well unlocked for gsm..I've used it on straight talk. ..h2o..and even flashed the phone to work on pageplus wireless network. .Only downside is the network only get H or H+...Btw am on At&t..they have better coverage. ..Now to get a 4G network icon you can go with T'mobile even on straight talk but coverage is just not as good as At&t. Also you can flash your this phone work on straight talk Verizon tower..Google. .
