Interesting; I don't have to enter a username or password when doing PPP
over Bluetooth to 1xRTT with Sprint.  In any case, it's quite clear
there need to be these fields anyway.

I'll likely be doing the development using a US CDMA provider like
Sprint or Verizon with both Bluetooth DUN and an EVDO card.
