When I was using the Ascend, it was available on two carriers, Metro pcs, and Cricket. One of the things we asked everybody to do in the "welcome to the forum" post was put which carrier they had in their profile so it would be easier to help them. (Eliminated the step of asking "which carrier" every time.) Worst I saw was a few "Metro POS" lol. Not exactly scandalous.
