Can You use a cell phone as an analog line?

by jakenct / March 8, 2008 2:11 AM PST

I am trying to use my cell phone as an analog line to dial in to a modem to work on PBX systems. I could not find any help with Verison's web site. I have a pn-820 phone and windows XP.

There's no need...

There's no need to use a cellphone as an analog line since PBX phone systems can use digital phones.

They wanted to call into a dialup modem which I fear you may have missed.

Cell Phone as modem to dial land lines NOT to the ISP
by Tangent513 / September 29, 2011 2:43 AM PDT

This "solution" just lets one connect ones computer via the Verizon ISP to the internet.
I believe the challenge was to set up the cell phone to dial out directly to another modem,and NOT use the internet.
I have a similar issue where as I need to be able to use a cell phone or Blackberry on Verizon services to dial different phone numbers (land lines) which are connected to modems which are connected to regular computers. I realize this is very 1980's but this is still useful when dealing with closed systems.
Anyone have any ideas on this?
