I bought Note 3 in India, which the sales people at Samsung stated that phone will work in US on Verizon network. However, coming here I found out that is not the case!.
I called Verizon upon my arrival and was told that I can take the phone to retail store close by and have them flash the phone. However, that's the case either!!
I go to my local Verizon store and they tell me that it's not possible. So now, I am confused. I understand that I may have lost my $700 I payed for the phone, but I would like to know for sure if this phone is able to be flashed to work on Verizon network or not. At least this way I know what needs to be done.
No. You will not be able to use a device purchased in India (presumably for an Indian service provider) on Verizon in the US.
You will need a Verizon device to use on Verizon.
