Can you please tell us the make and model of your modem ?
Please also tell us about your telephone line... are you using VoIP or
any other DSL or cable based phone line ?
I'd suggest that you try running some basic tests with HyperTerminal to
see how well the modem is working. Use AT commands such as ATDT to dial
your cell phone. You should also try calling the modem from your cell
phone and when you see RING RING on HyperTerminal answer the call with
ATA. These basic tests should be run multiple times and work without
Another simple test is to 'query' the modem using the diagnostics tab in
the modem properties dialog. Again, this should work every time and the
results should be consistent.
