Or, like I do, assuming it's a voice modem, configure it as an
answering machine.  I use mgetty/vgetty.  You can even run
asterisk and have a voice mail system like businesses do.

In my case, when I get an answering machine message, it gets encoded
and sent to my local mailbox.  I read it with mutt and hear the
message like any multi-media email message.  Then I delete it or
save it like any email message.
