is it possible to change the bands on a verizon s3 to work with straight talk and get 4g?

so i have an unlocked galaxy s3 from verizon on straight talk now but im only getting edge data speeds i heard that its not possible to get 4g because the frequency bands are different. does anyone have any experience with this?

Prolly cause you already maxed out your data or your running a weird custom rom.. The bands are the same..

850, 1900 MHz
CDMA

I'm on my way to switching mine to straight talk and for the most part I've read and gotten a ton of info that 4g just isn't available
