My girlfriend has a ThinkPad 600, I'll have a look on that and see if I can
get something going on it.

I use Roger Burnham's Serial package, which was a doddle to get some basic
communications going with my Ericsson T68.

Try sending some basic AT commands e.g. 'ATI\015' should get the modem to
identify itself.

You could take a look at the codes used in Gnokii

Its a Nokia specific tool, so it'd surely be of some use.
