Mmmm...  You're not going to get a prompt...  You just need to type into
the console provided...  If your keystrokes don't echo back to you,
something is wrong..  i.e. It's not finding the modem..  Are you at least
getting back an 'OK' message after the modem initialization??

I've never used the DIAL function from the menu, so I'm unfamiliar with
how it works...  I'd work on getting 'ATDT' to work...
