The reason why the wizard is showing only GSM providers is that the
database doesn't yet contain many CDMA providers :) 

The list of operators could easily be filtered based on network type,
but libmbca API doesn't support that ATM :/

True, but let's see if we can get network ID's to the database. We can
use those to present smart suggestions to the users and since network id
is inquired from the phone it's pretty accurate.
