Default LG Lucid 2 -VS870 - on GSM?

On gsmarena says that Lucid 2 is global phone and can be used on gsm network. Has anyone used it on gsm? To be more specific my concern is: -Is Lucid 2 intenationally unlocked?

Do you know if it's blocked only in US or everywhere because I want to use it in Europe.

I think GSMArena is wrong. I don't think this is a world phone.
Phonearena and Phonescoop both say this is a CDMA-only phone.

The lucid 2 is global.
To use gsm you need to edit the build.prop

Changing "ro.build.target_operator=VZW" in build.prop unlocks network toggle. Change VZW to anything. Then use any phone info app to toggle. I tried but cannot toggle to GSM. Instantly goes back to CDMA

Edit: i have lg spectrum 2 vs930 which has exact same hardware as lucid 2. VS930 has GSM.
If someone can guide me how to backup and flash baseband from VS930 to VS870 maybe we can make GSM work.

Edit: Changing "ro.build.target_operator=VZW" also unlocks *228

Doubtful. I think this is a CDMA-only phone. There are people claiming it has GSM capability, but so far no one has offered any proof of that.
