How can i activate iphone 5s in Brazil

Hi Guys

Need a little help!

 

I got as a gift, an iphone 5s that was bought in U.S from Verizon.

When i got it here, it was unlocked and working just fine!

 

Last week i had to use apple care, and Apple changed my phone.

For my surprise, i discovered that Verizon blocked it!

 

I got the new one, 2 days ago, but it came blocked, and i can use it!

 

Can you guys help me out? I live in Brazil, so i can’t activate at a Verizon Wireless connection.

It will need to be activated with a Verizon SIM on the network before it can take an international SIM.

At one point in time I might believe that, but I have seen for a fact with a Verizon iPhone 5s being activated on the AT&T network before it was ever activated on the Verizon network.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
