    Yes, make sure it's a VZW branded one.

    Any device that runs on the same frequencys that verizon uses rlshould run on verizon, tho a modem flash may be necesary, as well as an imei port, and you will also haft to change your mms address, these are not easy things for a noob to do. Im a veteran and I still have teouble sometimes.

    I wouldn't risk buying a $700 to test it out. I was hoping someone else did this and wrote a guide.

    Ive done this with other devices. If the antenna frequencys match up, then it will work on said network, for example a verizon htc one x will work on att or tmobile or sprint clbecaus rlle the frequencys are there. Just look for a rom and modem that will support the carrier. May be difficult for the note ii cuz its newer.

    And 700, u can find cheeper on ebay.
