I understand the desire for security, but how does one set the password
the first time?  Instead, how about about using a default passkey if the
module password is not set?  That keeps the web interface closed to the
casual passerby, but allows initial connection to those with the
physical module's accompanying documentation.

We really ought to be making this easier to configure than the v2
module, where it one needed wrestle with SIM cards, accounts, and
activation headaches in order use SMS messages.  USB serial consoles are
better, but they still aren't all that user friendly.  We have a
wonderful web interface; we should be able to use it out of the box.
