The "BLACKLISTED" thing is internal to the modem: it will blacklist
a number after several unsuccessful connection attempts. I don't
know how to clear the blacklist, off the top of my head.

Part of the reason is that my wife needs to use this computer and will NOT connent to the Internet from the command line without throwing a tantrum and making disparaging comparisons to other OS's. The other part is that I know precious little about chat scripts.
