I ran the region unlock app yesterday just for the hell of it on my Developer edition and inserted my friends AT&T Sim card and the calls went thru!. There was an H signal but it wasn't bright like the rest of the icons on the status bar and had no internet only calls, so I wonder if the AWS Unlock/hack will make the 3g/4g work? Or if anyone knows how please share.

I got 4G LTE speed on my Verizon note 3 and S5 with tmobile or AT&T sim, you just need to change APN accordingly.

All Verizon 4G phones are sim unlocked.

As urcboss said, you just need to change the APN to the specific carrier settings.

I am able to successfully use my VZ Galaxy Note 3 and my wife uses her VZ Galaxy S5, both on T-mobile Edge, HSPA, HSPA+, and LTE (band 4) frequencies.

Here's the guide I followed for both (with correct APN settings screenshots to accommodate for MMS on page 4 or 5 i believe):
