Thanks for example, but users are prompted for a port number and most users do not even know what a port is.
You can search for modem port by this
'Controls: Timer1 (Timer), MSComm1 (MSComm control)
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim s As String
    Dim iPort As Integer
    Dim n As Single
    Dim bModem As Boolean
    For iPort = 1 To 4
        With MSComm1
            .CommPort = iPort
            .Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
            .InputLen = 0
            On Error Resume Next
            .PortOpen = True
            If Err = 0 Then
                .Output = "ATV1Q0" & Chr$(13)
                n = Timer
                While Timer - n < 1
                s = s & .Input
                .PortOpen = False
                If InStr(s, "OK" & vbCrLf) <> 0 Then
                    MsgBox "Modem detected on COM" & iPort
                    bModem = True
                    Exit For
                End If
            End If
        End With
    If Not bModem Then MsgBox "No modem detected"
End Sub

iPort will be the modem port currently hook on to the computer
