I don't know how to get this working, I'd like to use this instead the Phone (And of course I have a Mic, I know it's required). All what I've seen in Google hasn't worked for me, at least isn't "self-explained" so not all is easy to follow instruction. So did anyone got this working?

Hm. Not sure I understand this correctly but provided you have the correct drivers installed you should see the modem as "virtual" COM port. Connect to that port (e.g. COM6) via PuTTY or some other terminal client and type ATDT123456789 (or whatever number you want to dial)

Ok, I did it, but I need area code and Call Rules Numbers. How do I search fo these? (These are for modem config)

Ah, and yes, I have the right drivers installed

Update: Forget the last, I've got the area code and all needed. I called and worked, but there's no voice in the other side (I heard who I was calling, but that person didn't heard me) and yes, I have mic.

Ah, you want voice calls? Sorry, I don't know anything about these. I guess you need a special program from your modem's vendor for that...

Windows XP ships with the Phone Dialer application, which should do exactly what you want.

The only problem is that, apparently, you can't be called. It's a one-way deal, you can only call other people, but not the other way around.

Unless you use Hyperterminal, which has a function for that:

And you can call from it, which is wonderful!

The main problem is that the call doesn't connect in my side, the phone receives calls and you can answer it, but the modem/computer doesn't detect when the call has been answered, so it doesn't connect the Mic/Voice to the phone which has answered (I can listen them, but they can't hear me) (They is figurative)
