You wouldn't be able to. Verizon requires all phones to be "approved" for their network. Since you bought the T-Mobile version the chances of that IMEI being in the Verizon data base for approved devices is slim.

Your TMobile S5 is a GSM phone and Verizon uses CDMA phones. You would not be able to get LTE and maybe not even 3g even if unlocked. You can bring a Verizon phone to TMobile since they are GSM unlocked but not sure if it works the other way.

If your phone is unlocked you could always use a Straight Talk AT&T sim card. $45/month. Have been using ST for all my unlocked phones for 3 years. I use the AT&T sim because I don't get good coverage from their TMobile sim.
