/dev/ttyUSB0 got me responses from my modem.  I saw the init string and an ok from an at command.

Now off to find a program similar to what I had before...(phonetray free)

Thanks!

Installed minicom, and tried to set it up using all ttyS0-ttyS3, and none worked.  According to lsusb, it is listed, but I don't know where it went to or how to tell what it became.  Using ubuntu 8.10, installed bu wubi.

I know the commands for the modem, just not where to send them to.
