That's 3G SIM cards.

To support 3G a phone needs the hardware to transmit the 3G protocol and 
frequency (3G chip inside) and a SIM card that supports 3G
The neo freerunner and 1973 don't have a 3G chip inside so cannot 
connect to the 3G network.
A while back people were having problems using 3G SIM cards in the phone 
(3G SIM card to connect to 2G network).
The phone wouldn't connect or would give issues so that page was setup 
to list which 3G SIM cards would work on the phone (2G connection).
As far as I know the latest GSM firmware fixed those issues.
