The Note II has both CDMA and GSM capabilities. It is a "global phone" as termed by CDMA providers such as Verizon and Sprint. Unfortunately Sprint decided to embed the SIM card unlike Verizon which has their SIM slot accessible. This means Sprint users are forced to pay Sprint's rates when travelling abroad instead of just popping in a pay-as-you-go SIM card from another country to save money on rates. Stupid Sprint.
 
Also, the Verizon Note II comes unlocked. My friend tested it by popping in a Tmobile SIM card and he was able to make phone calls using the Tmobile number on this Verizon Note II.
 
Here is a thread on XDA detailing the possibility of switching out some parts to convert the Sprint Note II to have an accessible SIM slot:
