They are. I guess the mobile companies don't enforce any password  
security on connecting to their gateways, but use these as some  
phones/software may complain if they're blank. I guess it's the same  
as dialup used to be - some companies wanted a username and password  
when you connected, others couldn't have cared less what you supplied  
as a username and password, but you generally had to type something.

Just to be clear - these are the connection details to get on to the  
internet via GPRS, *not* for any ssh connection!
