    I am shocked that it worked. T-Mobile is a GSM network. Verizon is CDMA. As far as I know they are not compatible, and most phones can't be used on both networks.

    You might have to adjust the APN settings. As for what they should be specifically, I do not know.

    Verizon phones are GSM compatible, but not vice versa.

    Probably didn't even need to be unlocked. Most, if not all Verizon LTE phones ship SIM-unlocked.

    These are the settings to get your mms messaging working. My sms doesn't send at all. Does anyone know what I can do? I have an unlocked S4 Verizon on T-Mobile
