"Network" field is sometimes empty in "Mobile broadband".

1. Setup Mobile Broadband connection and connect to it.
2. Open "Network Settings" - "Mobile Broadband".
   -> There should be operator name in "Network", no "Add new connection" or empty field. (sometimes this fails)
3. Disconnect from Mobile Broadband.
2. Open "Network Settings" - "Mobile Broadband".
   -> "Network" shows "Add new connection" or empty field. (fails always)

Another observation:
When Mobile Broadband is disabled and you are in "Network Settings" - "Mobile Broadband". Toggle ON/OFF button. -> You'll get correct profile in "Network" and also "IMEI"!
