In addition to what Brian said:

1) check if there's a "drop this connection if idle" setting
 - if there is then it could account for it dropping out when you've
gone quiet
 - last time I looked it doesn't have a default but it might

2) check if call waiting is on
 - check the white pages; there's a way to turn it off temporarily and I
think it's *44restofnumber

Also, it could just be your ISP, but I suspect it's *not* :-)

I'm sure you'll see there's more to
 Martin Guerre than a name!
