    Ok, here are the facts:
    Verizon based S6
    I own the phone
    I am in Bucharest, Romania
    I have Telekom SIM installed, verizon SIM is out
    Messaging, calls, data all work perfectly
    I have deleted all US based credit cards from google play acct

    Little icon in top left corner always! "SIM card is not from Verizon"
    When i go to google play store to download/search for apps relative to my location...i receive error saying "this app is not available in your country"
    For example; "Cristaxi" is a romania app for calling a cab....i can not even download it.

    Ok, i know this phone is "unlocked" from the factory....but how do i get it to stop thinking i am in USA...how do i get it "freed" from Verizon!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    BTW....it is obvious i can not go to a verizon store!!!!! I am in Romania!!!!!!!

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    Did you have to edit apn settings to get the data to work. I am currently away to with a verizon s6 and looking to grt a local services sim card

    To get rid of the not verizon sim notification, hold down the notification and then force stop
