Hello my fellow Note 3 friends , I am looking into buying a Verizon Note 3 from Swappa. What I need to know is , can a UNLOCKED Verizon Note 3 be activated on GSM networks like ( ATT ) or is it only the UNLOCKED international Note 3's that can only be ported over to different networks like Verizon CDMA and or ATT GSM networks ? and what are the differences ? , which device do you think is best to buy ? Thank You in advance for any help that you can give me .

Verizon does not SIM lock their phones so yes you can put an att or t mobile SIM in and have phone service but.... not full data support

att only hspa+ and phone work so phone and 3.5g data
on t mobile band 4 lte for 4G phone and h+ work

the t mobile note 3 is the one you want it has a unlockable bootloader

I appreciate your response , I wished that I could get and use the t mobile note 3 , but tmobile does not work where I live at and I am on verizon unlimited data now and dont want to give that up because of the tethering capabilities. Thank you for your help.

Same here I got the vzw note 3 I made sure to get a rooted without tripped Knox since developer models are either rare or expensive.

That said the Verizon models while locked down are not locked SIM wise and can in global mode go to any other carrier but the connectivity that they have is phone and 3g guaranteed 4G is a maybe

Knox is a security suite both hardware and software that we don't want when tripped the warranty on ours phones is supposed to be void and it gives nasty messages like unauthorized software is generally something you don't want to have tripped. At this point in time we have no method to reset it either.
