the snapdragon s4 is a SoC (System on Chip) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_(system_on_chip) so it includes the radio which is incorporated into the chip that's why the 2 links I posted above show what cellular technologies are supported by it

Plus*– Snapdragon S4 Plus processors bring outstanding application processing and leading-edge 3G and 4G internet connection speeds. Processors in the S4 Plus tier include MSM8960- http://androidandme.com/2012/08/smartphones-2/qualcomm-explains-the-system-of-tiers-for-snapdragon-s4/

IF the bootloader is unlocked on that phone, that firmware is our answer to getting custom ROMs

I need that serial number ASAP lol

1. I guess I was right because under the LGSERVICEMENU theres settings for GSM/UMTS & then settings for 4G HSPA+ http://db.tt/WwCnZZgY http://db.tt/yV5pOd7U so I guess it is capable of being a world phone

2. There's settings for 4G roaming on Verizon in the Verizon Hidden Menu

1 means nothing, my old optimus m has settings to change radio to GSM network, of course it doesn't work.

2 means nothing, many phones do that, the optimus s for Sprint has a menu with Verizon settings.
