Default [Q] Revert back to verizon from tmobile

Purchased an HTC M8 from a friend that seems like was flashed to T-mobile. I tried everything and various roms (revolution, viper, bonestock) and the stock vzw RUU to get the phone back to verizon. The APN file is still showing all t-mobile files in it.

Also if I go into settings>Network preference: It shows all european networks ie: vodafone UK ,Claro dom,JP DOCOMO, all GSM/UMTS.
I called verizon to verify the IMEI and sim and they both checked out to be verizon, so I know its a verizon phone. Has the VZW logo on the back also.

I cannot make calls or get any internet connection with it. Tried changing all of the network settings, replaced the sim card and so far no go. Can anyone point me in the right direction for some help.I have searching and tried various procedures for the past 2 days without any luck.

Strange thing is the 4G icon is there and when i try to connect to the internet the bars below it become active but I always get the same message: Cannot connect to the internet.

The phone is rooted, TWRP, S-off and CID 11111111 also.

Thanks for any help !

Check your IMEI number, settings>about>status http://swappa.com/esn use this site to see if its bad or not. If it is, the phone was probably reported stolen or the person who bought it didn't pay the monthly amount for the phone, so Verizon would have blacklisted it

I called verizon and first verified that is was indeed a verizon phone which it is and it is ok to be activated. I took it to the store an they tried a new sim card but it did not work. No phone calls or data
No matter what RUU or rom i tried flashing when I check the apns-conf.xml file in System>etc it always ends up having T-mobile settings in there.
I have it rooted, S-off, SuperCID11111111, and nothing has worked so far. Very frustrated as I have been working on it going on 3 days. But not all is lost. I have have learned a lot trying to get it fixed. I just might end up sending it in to HTCand have them fix it. Sure would suck to have a $400 paper weight
Thanks for the reply..

At boot time, Android determines the correct network configuration based on the MCC and MNC from the SIM card and automatically configure all network settings.
I have a verizon HTC One M8 (had my imei verified at a verizon store and esn was clean) with a new sim card and yet all of the files in my system>etc>apns-config.xml file are showing T-mobile.
Also in settings>Network Preference>all of the carriers are coming up vodafone, CLARO DOM, JP DOCOMO Swisscom and they are all GSM/UMTS.
Does anyone know why its not loading the proper files from my sims MCC and MNC ? This has been driving me crazy for the past 3 days trying to figure this out.
I flashed stock RUU and am s-off, unlocked, Super CID 11111111. Have no idea what is causing this.Any help or pointing me in the right direction would be GREATLY appreciated.

Well, Sent it in for repair. Told the Customer rep the phone was roooted, Rom'ed, CID'ed and that I never got to activate it.
So just waiting to see what happens and will post when I find out the verdict.
BTW, they could tell when I gave them the IMEI the day that the phone was rooted. Is that possible ? Sure came as a surprise to me. Gave the lady the IMEI # and after about 1 minute she came back on and told me the phone was rooted on May 1st. I have no idea if that is true because I have only had the phone for 1 week now.
