Modem strangely answers my phone, when ppp is not connected.

When I have killed all pppd, after running poff, when we pick up to
answer a phone call, we are getting a modem screech, which we have to
physically remove the line to get rid of.

I use modem lights to dial in, or alternately pon.  Previously, I had
configured ppp to "persist" when disconnected; however, even when those
lines were commented out from /etc/ppp/options, this other behavior has
bothered us.  

Can someone suggest where we might look?

I have steadily endeavored to keep my mind free, so as to give up any
hypothesis, however much beloved -- and I cannot resist forming one 
on every subject -- as soon as facts are shown to be opposed to it.

The right to search for truth implies also a duty; one must not
conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.

As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others we should
be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of
ours, and this we should do freely and generously.
