Thank you for prompt reply,
"luckily" my phone is quite an old one (2006) to have a modem inside. Actually, after my last post I was able to connect to ISP, though without a callback.
I established a standard connection (in XP: Network connection > Create a new connection), entered login and password, hit connect. Mobile phone dialed the number, ISP checked password and I got connected, though with only 9.6 Kbit/sec Another attempt with another ISP yielded the same slow 9.6 Kbit/sec.
But when I tried to use call-back, everything went smooth (dialing number, checking & confirming password, initiating call-back from ISP) until ISP calls my phone. The phone can't "identify" ISP's call. It just keeps ringing, and if I press green button on phone, no sound, no action.
Normal landline phone would ring twice and PC's internal modem answer the call (remember that squeaky modem sound?) and connection established.
So now, the task shrinks to "how to make Samsung D600 answer incoming call-back from ISP"? Otherwise, getting connected does not make sense, since I have only incoming calls free.
p.s. what about connection speed? is 9.6 Kbit/sec maximum I can get?
modem parameters show whopping maximum connection speed of 460 Kbit/sec.
