Description of problem:
[Wish] NM should _not_ display an incomplete list of countries/operators in a dumb 'hold-my-hand' configurator since not all of network operators out there aren't on the list anyway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Easy. Move yourself to Cambodia :D
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a canoe
2. Stack your stuff in, row all the way up the Mekong River to Phnom Penh city.
3. Try to connect.
You have to do it manually, after the dumb "helping hand" has fooled you into something else from albania or uzbekistan.
Stray away from the Ubuntu way. Give control back to the user (or at least, a "I live in another country" button)
Feel free to point me to where I should submit settings for my portion of the planet. But it doesn't change a thing.
[It was a live session; currently reporting so much issues that I didn't care to keep it up, sorry - well, especially with no network anyway. If given enough instructions, I can give it another go of course]
You can submit them here, and then I can add the mobile operators to the database.
Good point though, we should allow a "my country is not listed" thing. I'll file an upstream bug for that:
I just requested everybody here on the local LUG to report their settings:
I have 3 already, I'll wait a few more days & commit them then.
There is now a "My country is not listed" option at the top of the countries list that allows you to manually enter your provider name and APN (if GSM).
Actually for master it's a1ed5bfcae0aeda51e0e177ea5da48695477f0e8
That was fast.
Here is the current list, as reported by end-users from real life:
Country: Cambodia (KH)

Mobitel CellCard Corporate (012):

[I'll let you know if I stumble upon more]
dunno why it posted itself 2 times (but my nokia keeps on disconnecting on me all the time). please remove.
I updated the upstream mobile broadband database with your info. Many thanks to everyone who helped out!

Dan, thanks for this!
Yesterday with the PPLUG (Phnom Penh Linux User Group), we celebrated the 'coming' of Cambodia in NM at our weekly gathering.
No sooner did I notice that afternoon on a fresh install that NM 0.7.999-2 boasted both 'my country is not listed' and 'Cambodia', I switched my laptop to sleep in order to try this with friends (and beer).
Right there, yesterday night, I plugged my phone, selected 'Cambodia', then Mobitel, then my plan, and seconds later I was browsing away.
So, we had a second beer then, honoring your help to us, exotic nerds on the other side of the planet.
with thanks from the PP linux community!
