Mmm, you said the magic key: "off-hook". Googling around by that keyword 
there seem to be some docs and forums posts pointing to ALSA and this 
lead me to the "sl-modem-daemon" changelog file, which says:

Version 2.9.11
-Off-hook with mixer (ALSA mode)

And there's also a mention of this at the README file, I would take a 
look at it; maybe is that you now have define something at "/etc/default/
sl-modem-daemon" file t get this working.
