Default [Q] VZW Demo App

I have an Unlocked Verizon Note 2 I was wondering how do I stop VZW Demo App for re-installing itself. I keep uninstall it but re-install itself minutes later. My sister got it off craigslist, so I'm stuck with the phone. Is it possible to root it and put it on a different rom or install a stock rom to it?

Edit: Just realize post this in the wrong section some one please move it to the right one please.

Thats what I thought also, but it would have a bad esn if that were the case. Factory wipe it, and if that doesnt work, ordin back to stock.

Not to hijack a thread, but does Verizon actually block lte phones that are lost and stolen? Or is it like gsm where it will still work with a good SIM?

Seeing as they still have IMEIs im pretty sure they can be blocked if they are reported. I have read in the GS3 forums where some guys had gotten the phone off ebay or craiglist and VZW woupdnt activate it dues to it being reported stolen. They didnt have a 4g sim card though and were trying to get VZW to send them one so while that still leaves it uo in the air...
Im pretty sure if you use a phone on VZW that is reported stolen then they will block it and contact you, and im pretty sure theyd be able to even tho we use sim cards in 4g phones now.

When the first iphone came out I got one, I was young and stupid, and it got stolen within a month. When i called AT&T and reported it stolen they told me that it had been activated on a different account and that they were blocking it off of their network permanently and would contact the user and ask them to return it. I dont know what ever came of it cause they were supposed to contact me if they got it back, I assume they didn't, but even they could block a phone permanently back then sooo......
