What you could do is #*#*4636#*#* and see if there is a phone number and current network listed.
If the sim cannot be read by the phone I suspect those would be blank values.
I would imagine that at least the phone number in the sim would show up.
Edit: I just stuck a Verizon sim in and the number appears but the network name does not and it just shows "no service"
It was an interesting thing to try out... but it's not going to work.
I did try selecting other bands and stuff to see if I could trick it into working but nope...
