use a landline telephone, speakers, a mic, and a computer to go online with dial-up Answered

Would it be possible to use a landline telephone, a computer with speakers and a microphone, and a software program to connect to the internet with dial-up? there are multiple free dial-up numbers available, so if I called with the phone, and used the computer to emulate an analog modem and listen to the response with the microphone, would I be able to get online? if so, does anything like this already exist?

Editor I hate you, may you rot in hell!
Sorry couldn't help it ;)
Just check Wikipedia for "Acoustic coupler" and "Analog modem" ;)

Yes, something like this exists -- a modem.

Sorry, couldn't resist. So seriously -- why not use a modem?
