    I am in Argentina (purchased the phone in Houston last Saturday) can't get it to work.
    Got the error after inserting a local card; set for Verizon, can not activate.
    Any solutions?

    Hi - call Verizon, they should be able to unlock the device for you.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which Argentina carrier are you using? I don't think you'll be able to use LTE anyway, since Argentina uses the 1700 and 2100 bands, while the phone seems to support bands 3 (1800), 7 (2600), 20 (800), 38 (2600), 39 (1900), and 40 (2300). EDIT: I'm incorrect, see dpham00's correction below.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 edge | Verizon Wireless
    Network coverage in Argentina - 2G/3G/4G mobile networks

    Note that the list you posted doesn't include Verizon native lte bands 2,4,5,and 13.

    Wiki lists lte bands 3,4,and 7. All of which should be supported by this phone.

    To the op, try a Verizon sim(even u) nactivated and go though the activation process over wifi. Then after the phone goes through the initial setup, put in the local sim
