Communication Problem calling ECFMG

I called ECFMG today with skype. The system asked me to enter my USMLE ID. I entered it, but it continuously request me to do it. I was stuck in that step of entering USMLE ID. I called several times, the same problem. Any one with the same problem calling ECFMG, please help me. Thanks !

I called ECFMG 30 min earlier. Called from my cell phone. Had to wait for 8-10 min. Why don't you try calling from ur cell phone or landline?

I think you should try calling them from landline. or if the problem still exists, then call as a new user without an USMLE ID. when you get to an official present your problem about the ID. I don't think it should be a big problem.

Also, make sure to call them on the right time, THE OFFICE HOURS EST!

Best try to connect without USMLE ID.

CALLING FROM SKYPE WILL NOT BE USEFUL!!
no system recognises the digits entered through an Internet based call. even if you try to call some VOIP from cell, it wont work. you need to call them directly.
