Maybe, Motleyfan. Sounds more like the modem is fried, though.
However, when a modem gets fried, it doesn't usually put the line "in use".
Try this: Plug the phone line into the receiver and then unplug the POWER from the receiver. Theoretically, the line should get disconnected.
The 20 seconds thing puzzles me, though. It's like it's trying to phone home.
Bottom line: NVRAM reset certainly will not hurt the situation.
Funny, a ways back I had some quirky dialing while I was on the phone, too, but I never even thought it could be the HD300.
