The Verizon Note 3 is factory sim unlocked, I was able to put in a straight talk/tmo sim in and get calls, and use data after editing the APN. So does this mean that it is not region locked? I didn't see any sticker on the outside of my box mentioning region lock, but I bought it in store, so they might have removed it.

Its unlocked. I just tried my prepaid T-Mobile Sim card and after putting the correct APN setting I got G.

I can confirm that I switched the sim from my note 2 from att to my Verizon note 3 and it could make phone calls. But I wasn't able to get data. I tried to switch the app settings but that didn't work for me.

No. I'm not rooted. But the only downside is that there will always be a notification saying that a non Verizon Sim is inserted.

Where's the APN setting on the GN3v. I looked around in Setting but couldn't locate it.

The ones I used were the regular T-Mobile one. I don't have them memorized but a simple Google search will pull them up.

Sorry, I'm just looking for the settings area to make the change to. Like "mobile network/..."
