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 (retrobattlestations.com) that if someone can demonstrate getting a modem to work through a cell phone I’ll send them an entire set of retro stickers. http://imgur.com/a/iAS5T
