This guide will setup your Qualcomm Galaxy S9/S9+ for use on Verizon Wireless
I have not had any tester for the SM-G9600 but myself and several others have tested and confirmed this to be working on SM-G9650

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP EVERYTHING BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THIS GUIDE!!!
I am not responsible for any bricks, soft or hard, and not responsible for lost or corrupt imei/efs
  • Boot into TWRP and select backup.
  • Tap "Select Storage"
  • I recommend you backup everything to an extSDCard.
  • Select Boot, System, Data (if you want), and Carrier Configs
  • You can backup each one seperately or altogether.
  • Next select Backup again and select EFS only.
  • This backup is extremely important!!!!!
  • keep it stored somewhere online or somewhere safe.
  • If EFS gets broken and you do not have a backup you will not have a functioning phone. This partition is where your imei is stored.
  • Now, flash this file S9+_ODM_combo_ATTVZWUSCTMO.zip
  • Reboot to system and go through Setup Wizard if you have not done so already.
  • Now boot to TWRP again and flash this file Verizon_EFS_IMEI.zip
  • Do not flash both at the same time, you will be stuck in a ForceClose loop at Setup Wizard if you have not completed it already.
  • Now reboot and enjoy Verizon functionality with 2g, 3g, 4g, volte, and wifi-calling!!

If there are any issues let me know and myself and others will do our best to help resolve any issue.

Edit: Updating with a zip that is compatible with pie.

Wifi calling does not work just yet but we will get it fixed and upload it as soon as we can.

This also works on T-Mobile using this T-Mobile_EFS_IMEI.zip instead of the Verizon_EFS_IMEI.zip thanks to @klabit87
