You can buy a modem that enables you to hold the internet connection when you recieve a phone call.
Hope this helps.

You cant send data down a line and use a telephone at the same time using a dial up modem. ISDN will allow this as it is a dual channel or an ADSL or cable modem.

Are you sure you are not confusing making phone calls via the internet with a service such as Skype? Only broadband and similar offers simultaneous net use and voice calls.

You can't do it with a standard 56k modem, apart from make phone calls as mentioned.
