Does anyone still do that? I haven't used dial up for almost 15 years.
My cell phone provides a network connection.

Exporting/sharing a connection (over WLAN, BT or USB) is different. If
that functionality is available, use it. Dealing with modems and modem
software directly is not a lot of fun I can tell.

The Hayes Command Set, if you choose to use it, has a "dial" command
that must be used, even if there is no concept of dialing on modern data
networks. So you just input a magic code.

Seems like the modern chips no longer support voice calling (the old way
of modems talking).


But given a sufficiently vintage modem (perhaps with a vintage phone),
that could be another way of getting a data line, though not a generally
well-performing one.

And that's probably why they still call it dialing...
