Thank you to everyone who responded to my problem with the Motorola modem.


>> Change the QESTELE data area to 18003270949 and your problems go away.  
>>Just > drop the SST9:
 
>You can't drop the '9' - that's required to get an outside line. 
>You may need a pause after it, so '9,18003270949' should work.

Armed with the information that nothing needed to preceed the 
phone number, I tried '9,18003270949'.  No luck.  I requested and 
received a fax from Motorola, which indicated commas are not 
allowed.  I retried ':', which the modem manual defines as the 
character for "Wait for dial tone".  Still no luck.  Finally, I 
substituted 'W', which the modem manual defines as the character 
for "Wait for second type of dial tone".  Viola!  I am now in the 
midst of a PTF download at breakneck speed! <g>

Thanks again to all.
