Dialplan executes before call answered

Hi -

We are making automated outbound calls using call files and have an unusual intermittent problem where the dial plan is executed before the actual call is answered. So for example the call file will set the context to an extension in the dialplan which starts the playback of a pre-recorded message. In the instances when this happens (and it happens rarely), the call file dials the number then jumps immediately to the extension and begins playback of the message before the call is actually answered.

If anyone has seen something similar happen before please let me know.


put a wait() before the dial() function

please post your dial plan.
