Local overseas SIM that works on 4S 5.0 system?

I got a 4S because a handful of different technicians from different Verizon stores all said that when I when overseas (US actually, Saipan Northern Mariana islands US Territory) that I could load a local GSM SIM no worries and I had the instructs to do it.  I was told the phone was unlocked which we all know is a joke.  Anyway, even with Verizon Global Services really unlocking the phone I find out that local SIMS do not work in the 5.0 operating system and after the Apple 4 came out it was about 6 months or so before they would work.  I saw this on a tech website.  Anybody else find this and will a SIM fix be out eventually?  Stuck in Saipan with a 4S smart phone that does not work and the **bleep** of it is I have a local working dumb cell that guessed it Verizon!
