Use modem to dial voicemail?

I don't know if this should go into networking or software.

What I would like to try to do is have a cronjob setup to have my linux box dial my voicemail and key the numbers to tell it to forward all my calls at a specific time of day.
Could someone help me out with this?

Basically I want it to call 5551212
wait 3 seconds and key 1234
wait 3 second and key 1
wait 2 seconds and hangup.

I haven't tried it, but I believe you could use minicom and runscript.
(runscript is part of the minicom package).
Have a look at the '-S script' option and 'man runscript'.
