I have had absolutely no luck at all getting a modem to work through a cell phone. Not even at 300 baud. No problem doing 33.6 over a VoIP connection, but modems just won’t work with a cell phone. Not by patching in through the headphone jack, not through an acoustic coupler, nothing.

I have a standing challenge on the RetroBattlestations community ( that if someone can demonstrate getting a modem to work through a cell phone I’ll send them an entire set of retro stickers.
