similar thing happened when I tried to use voiceglo.. It appeared to be a
problem in the provisioning of the phone number. Their tech support never
responded to fix it, so I dumped 'em and now use Broadvoice instead.

I don't see fromuser= and fromdomain= in your config below.. try adding
those. In the SIP debug, you'll probably see that your asterisk server is
putting From : asterisk at yourhost in the messages to broadvoice. Their
server doesn't like that; it wants to see From:
yournumber at sip.broadvoice.com in the message. fromuser and fromdomain make
that happen.

PS, a question for Jay. What dtmf mode are you using? I haven't got dtmf
working inbound or out yet.
