Verizon phones are not SIM locked, they will however complain the SIM is from an unknown source, and in many cases it seems that to get it to boot up requires a Verizon SIM for the initial activation, then everything will work.

Since this is obviously not possible for you, your best bet would be to manually upgrade to KitKat with the Verizon Software Upgrade assistant through your PC and then install an aftermarket ROM, which will not require the Verizon initial activation.
