I am writing a piece of code to catch the data coming into my internal modem.
i made a text box which displays data as when a call comes in
this code just tells my modem to wait for an incoming call so that it can receive data when a telephone call comes in.
but i dont get any data on the text box.also is there any specific modem that i have to take care of.
if any of u guys have a working piece of code for an internal modem..kindly send it

Public Call_Name As String
Public Call_Number As String
Private Sub Form_Load()
    With MSComm1
        .Settings = "9600, N, 8, 1"    
        .CommPort = 2              
        If .PortOpen = False Then          
               .PortOpen = True    
        End if
     .RThreshold = 0
        .InputLen = 0
     .Output = "AT#CID=1" & Chr(13)    
    End With
End Sub
