    Hi everyone,so i bought a samsung note 3 from a buddy of mine at work. So im not good at phones but i have tried many different ways on the internet. I tried both global and the gsm option and both t-mobile and metropcs apn. It works when i restart it for about one second but then says no service and the popup that states that the sim is not from verizon. It doesnt ask for that network unlock code with my sim so i dont think its locked. I called verizon and they say they can't help me since its an old phone now. If anyone can help,id really appreciate it!! Thank you

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you able to edit the APN settings? If so, make sure they're correct: https://bestmvno.com/apn-settings/me...-apn-settings/ This might be a problem, though, because from what I've seen here, Verizon phones don't necessarily give you a way to edit the APN.

    It could be that the Note 3 for Verizon just does not support the base-bands that are in your area for Metro and T-Mobile.
