    when I first bought my Verizon Galaxy Note 2, I didn't have a Verizon 4G LTE SIM card.
    Verizon mailed me one, but it didnt' arrive untile a few days later....

    so... I inserted my T-Mobile prepaid GSM into the phone and powered it on for the very
    first time. The Google activation went through and I created another Gmail address.
    (in order to separate it from my other 11 Gmail addresses) it worked fine for voice
    calls and text messages... no data, obviously.

    when the Verizon 4G LTE SIM card arrived, I swapped out the T-Mobile card.

    fast forward five months to last week... I was looking at my Google Play Store settings
    from a browser window on my PC. I noticed that it still showed my device's carrier
    as T-Mobile, even though I have not put the T-Mobile card in there in the last 5 months.

    Is there a way to make Google Play Store recognize that my Note 2 is actually a Verizon
    Note 2? The problem isn't just the name of the carrier.... some of the Verizon-preinstalled
    apps are not being allowed to be installed or updated because of this issue.

    Hi, I just got my wife's Verizon Note 2 to get data. You need to set up your APN settings under Access Points. Here is the T-Mobile link to set it up:
