If I understand what you're asking, it is a strangely intriguing yet bazaar question! (no offense meant!).
Is what you want to do is to dial a number that has a modem on the other end and be able to watch the interaction between your BB and the other modem - like you would if you checked the "Show Terminal Window" box on the security tab of an XP DUN connection.
No, you can't do that. The BlackBerry is not a modem, nor does it have one. But like I said, very intriguing thought!
I don't know if this helps, but I believe there are telnet clients for the BB.
