The connections in the schematics are the right way. As for the software side, I don;t really have answers to these questions. As I said earlier, even with the serial USB solution, I had flow control issues to the point that it was simply not working. We seem to have issue with flow control, even if all we do is send serial data from a PC (the misery of "slowdown.exe"). 

I have a feeling that there is something slightly wrong on the MessagePad hardware side. I have seen the domino modem line and I wonder if even Apple knew that something is not working. Was the internal modem ever released? If not, maybe that's exactly why it could not be released?
