    Default put a T-Mobile sim card(prepaid) in my Note 2, works fine for voice/text, but can't get data at all?

    I have an old GSM phone with a T-Mobile prepaid sim card. I keep it on the daily plan which comes with unlimited voice/text and data.

    When I put that GSM sim card inside my Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Note 2, voice and text work just fine.

    However, I can't get any data at all. In addition, the phone also keeps giving me a warning message that it's a non-Verizon sim card.

    Are there ways around these problems?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    You would need to root, then do this to get data

    Jailbreak(bootloader unlock) / Root / TWRP Recovery -- Even after update [26JAN13]
