Phone and Modem Options opens a property sheet with three tabs. The key settings are:
- Dialing Rules
Configures locations from which you may dial. The minimum information to specify when creating a new location is a location name, country, and area code. You can configure a location to use a calling card automatically if desired.
Displays the installed modems, installs new modems or removes existing ones, and configures the properties of an installed modem. The properties for a modem vary and are usually configured automatically when the modem is installed. Some settings you might want to adjust are the speaker volume and the disconnect-if-idle timer. For standard (default) modem drivers these settings cannot be changed.
Displays the installed TAPI providers and lets you configure their settings when using advanced telephony applications.
