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??

either or doesn't matter an iphone appointment would probably have the least amount of steps.
