Buying The Right Modem
I am thinking of buying a modem. Do I need a rotary-dial phone, or will modems work with a Touch-Tone system?
Most modems will work with both the Touch-Tone and the older rotary phones. Some modems, in fact, work on Touch-Tone phones by emulating the rotary system. The Commodore 1650 auto-dial modem is one.
Before buying, however, it's always best to ask your dealer, or call the modem manufacturer for further information.
