You're missing something.  Take a look at a dialstring:


In this case the modem will wait 9 seconds before picking up the line to
hear a dialtone and then proceeding to dial.  The behavior of "W" versus
"P" in the dialstring depends on your modem and the presence/default
setting for the "X" value, too.  So you really ought to refer to your modem
documentation on which is appropriate for your use.
