Galaxy S5 SM-G900V Samsung Account Lock: No WIFI to Choose at the Wizard WIFI Screen

I bought this phone which was freezing up. I thought that a firmware upgrade would do the trick. However, there was a Samsung Account of the phone and I was not aware of. The phone goes to the first set up screen, asks me to connect to WIFI but there is not WIFI providers to choose from. I click in the refresh WIFI list and the phone asks me to turn on WIFI. However, I do not have access to the WIFI on/off switch due to Samsung account lock. After a couple minutes the phone would again freeze up. Sometimes it restarts or it would simply stay in a black screen. I have to remove the battery and start the process all over. I have tried re-flashing via ODIN . I update the phone via Verizon Software Assistance to the latest firmware Marshmallow G900VVRU2DPF4. But I downgraded to G900VVRU2BOE1 Lollipop 5.0 firmware now. I also tried removing the account by flashing the modem.bin file but I get stock in the same spot. Guys, please help!
