do you remember when computers first came out without auto dial modems Answered

do you remember when computers first came out without auto dial modems you would put your land line phone into a holder and dial the number to connect? I would like to do the same with my cell so I don't have to pay data charges. what do you think? can this still be done?

I don't know that cellular audio is high enough quality to work at the higher baud rates, even if you made a direct connection using transformers and the headset jack. At 300 bps, you can probably mail a floppy disk faster than the data will transfer.
