Modalism does not believe in eternal coexistence which is that all three persons exist at the same time, from eternity. That's the key difference and in fact the only real difference between modalism and Trinitarianism - modalism does not believe that Christ existed before he was born.

Trinitarians do believe that God became a man, Jesus Christ, just as modalists do, but the difference is the eternal coexistence.
