Cisco VOIP Phones dropping External calls

I have a Cisco phone system that was recently installed.  Everything seems to be working fine, but we are having issues with the system randomly dropping external calls.  The call still shows as active but no audio can be heard.  I've got a Gateway router 2821 model that handles all of the call routing, and Cisco Call manager 6.1.1.300-2.  VOIP to VOIP internal calls seem to be fine, and outgoing external calls seem to  not have a problem, but incoming external calls are pretty hit an miss.   Any suggestions?

I thought it might be that as well, but the voice PRI is connected driectly to the router.  Our pix is not an issue with voice data

The calls come directly into the router from the CO.  There are 3 PRI's that are directly connected to the voice gateway router (2821) and from there are sent to Call manager.  the firewall is not in play in this instance

Is your gateway h.323 or mgcp?
