if you add *70 as a dialing prefix, that'll disable call waiting for the
current call (I think that's the right code).

If you set your modem mode to X0, and call waiting interruption will usually
hang up you current line and allow the incoming call to pass (if you didn't
disable call waiting).  Setting mode to X0 will likely forfeit some features...

This was true on my old Hayes compatible 9600 modem.
Don't know if it's still true
