 I have a Program that auto answers now on th Xm301, Then I 
Know How to send Characters, but how
would I let the person
calling see what he is typing at an
input? And Would I use
Get #1 or Input #1 for String characters? Thanks if you can help.

        Use GET#1, then immediately 
follow it with PUT#1.  (I'm assuming
you OPENed one modem channel for two-
way transfer.)  That allows you to echo
his words back to him AND TO PROCESS
EACH CHARACTER AS HE SENDS IT!  This 
last can be important for keeping files
smaller when the caller deletes things,
and for single-key responses.

         Thanks for asking.
