http://forums.androidcentral.com – I don't know if this has been posted or not, but the Verizon Galaxy Note II is now a true global phone. Use GSM SIM cards from any carrier for VOICE, TEXT and DATA(!) No rooting required, if you updated it to Android 4.1.2 via the update released by Verizon Wireless earlier this month. I confirmed this on two Verizon Galaxy Note II phones.(mine and my co-worker's) The tests were done using AT&T post-paid GSM SIM card and T-MOBILE prepaid GSM SIM card. Insert the GSM SIM card, go to Settings > More settings > Mobile networks > Access point name > Menu button & (HowTos)
