    I have Verizon but work where there's no vzw coverage so I have a prepaid tmobile phone.
    I want to use my sim from tmobil in the vzw note 3.
    I put it in I can make calls and recieve but cant send sms or get on the Internet?

    I read something about changing or adding a vpn for tmobile to use sms and net?
    Anyone have the solution?

    You'd have to root your phone then add the "apn" necessary to get to t mobiles network.

    You can edit the apn without root on the Verizon Note 3. Just put in the tmobile sim and go into the settings and edit the apn. I tried a StraightTalk /tmobile sim and got voice and data no issues.

    The Verizon Note 3 has cdma and gsm radios. According to the fcc filing, it supports tmobile band 4 lte as well, though don't know if it is locked for now since Verizon hasn't deployed band 4 lte yet.

    Hey guys. I'm a complete noob. Would you guys mind giving me the apn settings? I noticed the example and suggestion given, but it's not working. I'm not sure if I'm suppose to add to the apn.
