There are years since I have needed to configure network settings with
my Norwegian SIM cards for use in phones. But i just came across a case
where swedish settings were set in a SIM card for Tele2 which operate in
both Norway and Sweeden.

Missing settings are okay, but if they are incorrect, they should not be
used. Before it was a problem that they used to be WAP APNs, but I guess
people wants to use full internet APNs nowadays even in phones, to be
able to read e-mails etc.
