Default Verizon Note 3 KitKat Trouble

I recently returned my note 3 back to stock after I loaded a 4.4 rom thinking it was the rom and not actually Kit Kat that was causing me so much trouble with my note 3. I have been in love with this phone since the day I got it on its release date until I finally started using Kit Kat. Since then this phone is junk I have to restart multiple times a day battery life is junk and the GPS is unusable. Not sure what to do from here as I understand there is no root and No way to get back to 4.3. I'm sure I can get Verizon to replace the device but the replacement will just come stock with 4.4. Please someone out there has some insight on how to get back my beloved device
