Plug it into a phone line.

Then go to Start -> (All) Programs -> Accessories -> Communication -> Phone Dialler.

Bash your mobile number in. Click Dial.

If the modem is working and the right drivers are installed, your mobile will ring. Otherwise, um, it won't :tazz:

Anyway if the modem's functional it'll appear in Device Manager as a PCI Communication Device if it doesn't already know what to do with it.
