Dial the phone from the Address Book
Authored by: BobVB on May 04, '04 12:13:05PM

I just did a test button to dial a number and it worked fine.

Open Scriptmaker.
Perform Applescript.
Put this in the text area:

tell current record of document 1
    set thephonenum to cell "Phone"
end tell

initModem "/dev/cu.modem" with "~^M~AT&F1E0S7=45S8=5S11=150S0=0L2^M"
delay 1
dial modem "ATDT" & thephonenum
display dialog "Dialing " & thephonenum & return &
"You can pick up the receiver, then click OK to hang up modem." buttons {"OK"} default button 1
hang up

made a button that performed this script and it dialed the phone.
