Default [Q] Galaxy Note 3 on Sprint anyway of getting GSM?

OK so after one 2 many beers I purchased a sm-n900p off EBay on sprint. I am based in UK and we use GSM. Only just realised the handset is CDMA. Am I now stuck with a useless phone or is there anyway I can flash it or do anything for my O2 sim card to work on it?

There is currently no way to unlock the phone for international SIM without being a Sprint customer and having the phone activated on an account.

can you explain more regarding having sprint customer?

from a lot of forum threads i'm getting Bias information:

so, It is possible to use GSM international but nobody can do that unless Sprint authorize person do something to the phone or account?

so Unlocked version doesn't exit? or what Unlocked mean on SM-N900P?

the phone can only be unlocked for International SIM cards by Sprint, and for this to be able to be done, the phone has to be activated on a Sprint account. this is the ONLY unlock method currently available for this particular Note 3 model (Sprint variant, SM-N900P)
