Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to control the modem (standard phone modem) in the PC, so I can let it dial pagers?
For my job I need to call 1400 pagers, and recall everyone that doesn't call back every day. This is an mind numbing job, so I would like to automate it.

I need the program to do the following: dial a pager, wait till the answering service picks up, enter the phone number the receiver needs to call, wait for the answer and then hang up.

Does anybody know what classes I should use? Or maybe someone knows a program that can do this already? That would save me the trouwble of re-inventing the wheel...

I've already searched the net for possible answers, bt found none so far.

Greets,
El Loco

Start Googling for "TAPI" there are some good samples available. Since you are not trying to do an answering machine, it should not be that difficult.
