Either you used the wrong syntax in your call file and you sent it to the dialplan before it dialed out, or you are using analog phone lines and therefore do not know when the call is answered. If it is your call file, that is fairly simple to fix, if it is your technology, you will need to do something like detect voice for the answer.
