I've found that 90% of the time when I do that, the other guy fails
to repeat my call, so I don't know whether he got it or not. With
the X4 penalty, it usually makes sense to delete those. (My UBN
reports confirm the results when I don't delete them!) So, while it
takes slightly more time to withold the exchange, I don't know any
other way to be sure of getting the confirmation. Any other ideas?
