: Do you have "AT&D2" set on the modem so that it drops DTR on carrier loss.

: DTR too.

You probably want AT&D3 as on modems that I am familiar with this will
reset the modem in addition to hanging up.  You want to set up your
NVRAM settings to a useful startup state - especially if you use the modem
for both dial-in and dial-out - and reset to that known state when
you finish a call.
