[Freeswitch-dev] No sound with Gizmo5 after transfer from a dial plan

It is a very interesting and challenging issue! What I am trying to
achieve is playback a message (notice) to PSTN telephones with Gizmo5
as service provider with the originate command as follows:

$ originate sofia/gateway/gizmo/0019876543210 5001     (Case 1)

$ originate sofia/gateway/gizmo/0019876543210 5002     (Case 2)

I can hear the playback from extension 5001 in the first case, while I
could not hear anything from extension 5002 in the second case. The
difference between them lies in that extension 5002 transfer the call
when the PSTN phone is connected. Please see the dial plan below. Both
dial plans are basically adapted from examples found in the online
documents. Both 5001 and 5002 work for my two other voip service
providers. On the surface, it appears to be Gizmo5's problem. But, I
am wondering if there is any issue on the FreeSwitch side.

My main goal is to delay playback until the end user has picked up the
phone. I have been looking for a way to do this but ended up with
nothing so far. I have tried setting {ignore_early_media=true}, but
that did not help either.

I am welcome any suggestion on how to achieve this. In the meanwhile,
I would like point out this issue.
