It is still not very clear exactly what you are doing.
If you are running 5.x then that is quite outside my ken and
you should not take my added notes to seriously.

Which end is this where you enter the echo command -- the autoanswer end with
ttyd0 enabled in ttys or the other end? And where does it pop up at the other
end? Presumably you are calling out from the distant end with some sort of
software addressing /dev/cuua0.
The response end (the end that is being called) normally talks through
/dev/ttyd0 rather than /dev/cuaa0.

The change from ?? to d0 will happen when getty gets the appropriate modem
control signals -- I'm not sure exactly what, probably 'carrier detect'. Can
it be you have a problem in your modem cable? Or even some freaky modem
If this is the case it "might" sort of work if you dissable the requirement
for modem control signals using (at the answer end)
# stty -f /dev/ttyd0 clocal
