I have a Samsung SCH-8500 cell phone that has a built-in modem.  (You
connect it to the serial port on your computer via an overpriced cable
and send it AT commands.)  Using pppd under Linux on both the client
and server end, I dial a modem on my home machine.  The only other
piece of software I use is mgetty on the home machine to actually
answer the phone---it hands it off to pppd quite nicely.

The mgetty+sendfax documentation and the pppd manpage contain all the
information you need to get something similar working for you.
