    In all likelyhood, no. In reality, time will tell. But dont get your hopes up.

    I really hope this does. I am in dire need of a NICE international Verizon phone.

    When I pre-ordered, I was asked if I was going to use the phone internationally. That would mean to me yes, it is a global phone. When I selected "no", I was told I could unlock it later.

    From Phone Scoop: LTE 750
    WCDMA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
    CDMA 850 / 1900
    GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

    If it has GSM radios it should be unlocked from the get go. Verizon's iPhone 5 is sim unlocked from the factory and they had some announcement to the effect of going forward all devices that are on the 4G network will be fully sim unlocked to comply with the requirements for their spectrum block. So here's hoping.

    I'm officially confused. There is no confirmation for reputable (and un-reputable) sources on the availability of GSM on Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
    Even the Samsung rep that I spoke to on the phone seemed unsure. I guess it will be revealed when someone actually holds the Galaxy Note 2 at a Verizon store?

    Well according to Samsung's site Specs - Verizon Wireless Cell Phones SCH-I605 | Samsung Cell Phones it very clearly says the following:

    Network
    Frequencies and Data Type GSM Quad Band: 850/900/1800/1900 UMTS Quad band: 850/900/1900/2100
    Data Speed GPRS/EDGE

    So it would seem that yes GSM is in there, its a world phone for 3G anyways.
