Use an AT command? Have a look at the docs for the modem or the
manufacturer's docs for the modem's chipset.

Hi,

Sure (lots of examples in my book -- see below). However, the details
depend on what you want to do AFTER dialing. Do you want to connect with
another modem to send and receive data, or do you want to then pick up the
local telephone and talk, using the modem as an autodialer?

For example, if you send this command to the modem:

"ATD5551234" & vbCr

The modem will dial and attempt to connect to another modem.

If you send the command:

"AT5551234;" & vbCr

The modem will dial, but will then return to command mode, without
attempting to connect.
