Form Problem with form 186! Help!

Hello everybody!
I am new around here. I had seen a few posts as a guest recently and I really thought you people to be resourceful. I have this problem with the application processing. Here's what happened- After the ECFMG decided to resurrect its IWA site last night, I filled in the application right ahead and made the payment. Thereafter, I was redirected to the OASIS financial summary page which shows the payment detail, but where is the form 186 I was expecting to see? When I went back to IWA, I could only see an option to continue on the saved application(which means going through the entire application, from scratch!). Neither does OASIS show the application received status. One thing though is all these pages show information as true on 5th Sep' 11, while the payment(even on the OASIS record) was made on 6th Sep'11. What must I do? I've waited more than 7 hours already! Did you all get the application, pronto? Or did anyone of you have to wait? Please help!

There isn't any. The page I get shows me an option to begin a new application or Continue on a saved application or Print/ Reprint form 187.

There could have been a problem with the ECFMG server/database at the time you have applied which have resulted in the error you are seeing.

I suggest you call them first thing tomorrow morning.

Keep us informed of what they'll tell you.

Meanwhile, have a look at this post

Default Yippee! I got it!

So, after all that agonizing wait for the ECFMG phone lines to open and then waiting in the queue, I finally got to speak to the customer care executive. They told me there was some problem due to which although my payment was through, my application wasn't. So I was asked to go through the saved application and submit the same while the money would be credited from the payment made yesterday. I did and I got the form 186! Ooooh
