the right response to the question can Modems be used with dial|it is a „it depends“

  • most modems had own drivers for windows2000, at that point the clear response was yes it will
  • for XP most modems, did not provide own drivers, and using the microsoft driver limited the tapi funktion to outbound only. 
  • for windows7, the only modem family that works with inbound Caller-ID, is the way2call modems
  • for windows8 the only modem family that works with inbound Caller-ID, is the way2call modems

you can use Phone.exe to identify if your modem/driver is supporting caller-id, and if so, dial-it is supporting it to.

if you find other modems, that work with windows7 or windows8 with inbound calls, let us know the brand, the driver and we will be happy to post it here
