You probably do not have enough g729 channels license.

Unless you have serious bandwidth issues, just forget about g.729 and change
to a-law throughout.  A-law is what the PSTN  (in civilised countries)  uses
anyway, so you won't need to transcode  (which chews up processor resources
and risks compromising quality)  for calls to and from the outside world.

If you really need to use g.729 and are outside the USA  (therefore, beyond
the reach of software patents),  there is a free version that you can use --
and this one, better than Digium's offering, comes with the Source Code so 
can be sure it isn't doing anything nasty behind the scenes.

But to be honest, you probably are better off just sticking with a-law.
