I have up till this point just assumed that the only difference is the radio you install.
My understanding is that it should work on all carriers. For example, I got my HOXL from AT&T, but it was also sold on other carriers. The ROMs I have installed on my device work across all those carriers and are generic to the device. However, the easiest way to see if this is the case for the one is to go to and look up your device, and see if the ROM is different for different carriers.

EDIT: I went and looked, and it looks like there is a specific ROM for the AT&T, t-mo, sprint, and unlocked. So perhaps there are more things tht are different across the different models then usual,and you need to pick a ROM based on whether you have a carrier model or an unlocked model.
