Automatically monitor that a phone number gets answered?

The external fax modem in our office sometimes simply stops answering the phone. To fix it, we simply unplug it wait 10 seconds then re-plug it.  We only get a few faxes a week, so sometimes it takes a while for anybody to notice the problem.

We have ordered a new modem, but the boss would like us to monitor the fax daily.

He gave one of our people the thankless job of calling the fax once a day to check that the modem answers.

Does anybody know of a program, to automate this simple function, and send an email if the modem does not answer?

Perhaps an application that can run on the boss's iPhone??
