    Hey Guys --

    Is it possible to use a DroidX as a dial-up modem? I'm not talking about a cable modem or some way to get on the Internet, but rather dialing into a remote server via an analog phone connection. Examples being old-school BBSes or RAS/DUN servers.

    Most if not all the Motorola Phones I've had over the years have this capability, and given the Droidx is seen by my Linux laptop as both a USB storage device and Network device is there any way to set it up as a USB modem that could accept AT commands from a terminal program and dial out to a remote modem?

    Thanks for any advice in making this work. Take care --

    Sam

    I have a semi-related question. Is it possible to use an Android phone as a dial-up fax machine? I imagine that as long as it is possible for the operating system to send or receive sound to/from a phone call, it should be possible if someone wanted to write the application.

    I did just search for a Fax app, but the only ones there were ones that use a special service, not directly dialing a fax. They were all rated very poorly.

    Following this one. As a PBX technician, that would be invaluable.
