So it seems my "no" was wrong.

Still, I'd go and ask the verizon shop where you bought it. My guess is that you will need to buy either a Verizon-offered sim-card or a local one to be able to use GSM. And, of course, pre-paid data is rather expensive.
If it has WiFi looking for a public WiFi occasionally might be cheaper.
