    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

    First root using this method

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

    Then mod your apn settings with this it's simpler then what's posted above
    [MOD] Add APN editor to System Settings
