Default Unlock it for Verizon

I bought a tab 10.1 and the company that I bought it from said that it would work on Verizon. But it turns out that it is only unlocked for use on GSM networks.
I am wondering if there is anyway I can unlock it to work on Verizon. I am aware that I am a prolly going to pay for it.
So any information would be a big help.
Thanks.

Sorry for the bad news, but Verizon uses a CDMA network, not GSM/HSPA. Totally incompatible systems so I don't believe there is any way it will work on Verizon whether it's unlocked or not. To confirm, is the model number on the back GT-P75xx? If so, it's GSM. The Verizon model is GT-I905.

Perhaps you can sell or trade it for the Verizon CDMA model?
