mbca: CDMA operator issues


I notice the Wizard in Ubuntu also doesn't filter for CDMA vs. GSM,
which can obviously be autodetected based on probing of the HAL
information.  For a given GSM device, you shouldn't show CDMA, but for a
given CDMA device, you shouldn't show GSM operators.  I plugged my
Sprint card into an 8.10 beta system running NM packages from 2008-10-15
and it just showed GSM providers, which obviously won't work for my

It's also sometimes possible to pull out what CDMA provider the card is
meant for by grepping the output of ATI, because the firmware strings
will sometimes contain the provider name.  Might be a future
optimization to suggest the provider based on that, but let the user
override if they wish.

There's also http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557819 which has
a few more CDMA things for mbca.
