right click on my network places > right click on your dialup connection > properties > on the general tab, tick the box that says dialing rules > press the dialing rules button > choose your location and press edit > tick the "to disable call waiting dial " box and choose the key combo that's used in your area (most of the us is *70) that should cause the modem to disconnect upon incomming calls

if you don't have call waiting....then it should be disconnecting you when you get a call...most telco's aren't really charging for call waiting...try doing the steps above and see if it makes a difference
