Verizon Galaxy Note II - GSM Unlock - Add APN Data - Remove Non-Verizon SIM Message
 
This is great info.
We have one of the best phone now working with GSM Data.
CDMA Voice with SIM Card should work without any change & CDMA Data through SIM can also be tried through this APN method.
 
I think we may have another best seller on our hand after Incredible 2 which works on CDMA & GSM SIM Card with Data! :)
 

First and foremost, the VZW GN2 comes SIM unlocked out of the box. It is global ready and you can technically put in any SIM (assuming it is active) and not need an unlock code or the unlock method you have seen in other posts (AT&T or T-Mobile variants). This includes domestic carriers such as AT&T and T-mobile. Also voice should work without any changes, however, data will not work unless you add APN data.

 
Verizon chose to only put their APN data on the phone and block the ability to add APN data via settings. Most likely so you use their global services to make more $$$.
 
How to add APN data:
In order to get data working you have to add carrier specific data to the apns-conf.xml file. While you may have been able to do this is in the past on other devices under settings, VZW has blocked this.
 
Method 1:
Flashable mod (via custom recovery) that will enable the Add APN menu by removing Verizon's block.(For deodexed roms only) >> http://www.mediafire...wqmad2ypgsyd75z
This enables the apn editor under settings.
Go to Settings, More Settings, Mobile Networks, Access Point Names, menu button.
 
Method 2:
Ensure your phone is rooted
adb pull /system/etc/apns-conf.xml
Add the carrier data to apns-conf.xml with your favorite text/xml editor and save
adb push your modified apn-conf.xml file back to /sdcard/
Copy this file back to /system/etc/ and change permissions (I use root explorer)
Power down and change your SIM card (AT&T, T-mobile, whatever) if you hadn't already done so
Power back on and go to Settings -> More Settings -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names (if done properly you should see the APN data you entered for your respective carrier).
Select one of the APN listings and then you should have working data
Profit
 
Removing the Non-Verizon SIM message When Using a Non Verizon SIM Card:
This will occur on roms that include Samsung's Setup Wizard (including stock) - all others can ignore
Method 1:
- Freeze "Setup wizard 1.0" in Titanium Backup 
Method 2:
Download THIS APK for a deodexed ROM only and replace the original in /system/app/, then reboot. Make sure that /system is mounted as read/write before copy/pasting, and also that you're on a deodexed ROM. After copying it over, reboot and you shouldn't have the ongoing notification anymore.

Hidden Menu Enabler for the Verizon Galaxy Note II >> http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2077653

 

NOTE: Be Very Careful in using this menus. Don't mess with it unless you know what you're doing as rightly advised by Hetal Patel in this later post no 11.
 
I request Rajan to Remove IOT menu ! just messing with it will put Death Nail to you NOTE2 - Want to try ? Just Press RTN or just mess with 1x Engineering menus

Thanks Rajan Bhai.

Does this actually means CDMA Voice/SMS + GSM 3G Data will work simultaneously? Both active at the same time like a dual sim phone?

All world capable phones are one at a time, either CDMA or GSM. This one looks no different.

My Vodafone sim was working fine for voice/text in my Note 2 back in USA but the same sim is not working here....My Note 2 shows signal and network name but whenever I try to place it just disconnects and when some other person try to call me it also does not connect.....

 

Please help me in this

TOday I received PM from Shashank asking if GSM on N2 works.

 

For me it works, my N2 is on

BUILD : JRO03C-I605VRALJB

BASEBAND : I605VRALL4

Kernel: 3.0.31-414933

Android : 4.1.1

 

I downloaded ROOTED ROM from http://server10.stoc...?token=39385653 and ODIN it.

 

To insert VODAFONE APN, I used TB and APN MANAGER PRO.

 

But, this phone is on CDMA though.
