Can the Pilot generate dial tones?

The CURRENT Pilot cannot and there has been no info on whether the rumored
"Pilot II" will be able to or not. The speaker is not capable of generating
the correct tones or at a high enough volume.

Can the Pilot generate dial tones?

I also thought this would be a GREAT match for my Pilot.  Somebody could
do an
external version that connects to the hotsync connector.

1. Technique for Tone Dialing using LX-DIAL

     I am using LX-DIAL on the HP 200LX and the program seems to work fine
in getting the speaker to produce tone dialing.  The question is .... do I
just pick up the phone receiver and play the 200LX into the phone to dial?
That doesn't seem to work, what is the technique here?  Thanks for any
help (expecting an excrutiatingly embarassingly simple answer).
