Default Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4& Metro PCS

I have come across a few different threads on this and also scoured the net for some clarification and I seem to get mixed responses. I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 (MK2). I went w a prepaid service to save a few bucks, and initially went w AT&T GO as I knew it was compatible. The problem is, they only give 2gb of data and if you go over they dont throttle, they shut it off unless you pay more money.

I looked into MetroPCS, and they are unlimited w their 60 a month plan- I researched and saw that quite a few people had success with this phone even though its Verizon. However, when I plugged in what I believe were the correct APN settings, I got dial tone, but the data itself went from H to disconnected, and fluctuated in that way. Is this a lost cause?

I dont mind changing ROMS/radios if that will help, right now I'm running Hyperdrive.... I had to switch back for now to the AT*T sim but I'm really hoping I can get this working as I burn more than 2gb of data in my sleep much less a month. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Did I post this in the wrong forum? If so my bad, just assumed this would be where it belonged.

Ghettro PCS is ok you have to have your phone in GSM mofe though in order to really use their service, from what I've been told. Just make sure the APN is perfect to ghettro as well. read in the Switching to At&t prepaid "tutorial" located http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2672843 as well as this one which goes for TMo.. same kinda issues but a lot of help http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2518347 Is At&t Go any better than straighttalk?
