"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will find the code for a simple dialer in your \VB\samples\vbterm  directory. After you dial out, the dialer (or you) reads your Comm port. If your modem sends a "BUSY" reply (this is exactly the string reply you will get) you will have to hang up i.e send ATH0 & chr(13) to the modem and wait a second or two (waiting is a must). Then you dial out your second number the same way you did before.

Good Luck with modems. You'll need it.
