Are you sure the call has been sent? Some phones have odd dialplans 
installed, and may not send the call to the SIP relay until you meet the 
dialplan reqs, press #, or otherwise wait the inter-digit timeout before 
the call is actually placed.

If this is the case you need to take a hard look at the dialplan string 
for the endpoint, and edit accordingly.
