    I bought an unlocked Samsung S5 off ebay (Samsung SV-G900V). I live in Central America.

    Phone mostly works fine (aside from annoying Verizon startup screen, and notification that my SIM is not verizon).

    However, I am unable to text / call some numbers (my local phone company's customer service for example *611). It seems some Verizon remnants are kicking around, and perhaps the phone thinks I'm trying to call a number in the US?

    I thought about trying to root the phone to get rid of this verizon-associated bloatware, but am new to android, and don't want to kill my phone.

    Advice?
