First thing to do is verify that the modem is connected to /dev/ttyS0. I see that the config calls for it to try to dial out on ttyS0. But if the modem isn't connected there, no amount of config is going to make it work.

Run '/usr/sbin/hwinfo --modem'. It will probe the hardware and tell you the ttySX number you should be using.
