Has anyone figured out how to dial a cell phone from the ACT dialer?

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

I was hoping to find out if anyone has been able to figure out how to get that dialer to redirect through the USB port and then send dialing commands to the cell phone. Maybe I should submit this for a future feature?
Personally, I'm not that technical. I can follow directions, but have no clue on how to do something like this.
Thanks for your response, though.

The ACT! program hasn't had any native dialer capabilities since ACT! for Windows 2. Since ACT! 3, what you see in ACT! as dialer setup and preferences are simply a mirror of the Windows dialer capabilities. In fact when I was in tech support and someone called about the dialer, I specifically took then to the Windows control panel rather than use what was available in ACT! to emphasize the point that Windows was doing the dialing. What I always advised when the Windows dialer wouldn't work was to not mention ACT! to Microsoft or a phone company that you worked with because about 99 times out of 100 (or even more) when then could dial through Windows, the problems with ACT! went away.
This is a long way of saying that a feature request regarding dialing a cell phone from ACT! would be a waste of time because the capability would first need to be in Windows. On the other hand, I believe there are Windows apps that will allow dialing VOIP from Windows so there may be something out there for cell phones.
