Which ever Verizon rep told you that was misinformed. The sim slot will take a gsm sim card and work as long as it's a global phone, the sim is unlocked, and you use a carrier that uses frequencies that your phone supports.

Not every LTE phone is global capable, though just about any modern one is. There are a couple older ones like the Galaxy Nexus, Droid Charge, etc that don't have gsm radios in it.
