If you want to use a modem to dial, and have a "real" modem (as opposed to a
software-based modem a/k/a "winmodem"), you can use the SerialPort to send
Hayes AT commands to the modem, wait for a bit, and then hang up.
You'll have to tell the modem not to wait for a dial tone:
ATX0 "no dialtone or busy detect"
ATS6=0 "blind dial with 0 second delay"
"now wait for a bit for the dialing to happen"
ATH0 "hang up"
