Help Rescheduling the exam date!

hello guys,
I need some urgent help here. I canceled my date at prometric center and extended my eligibility peroid. I have got the updated Exam permit. I am trying to take the date on prometric website but it says that my number is already used!
I tried to call prometric center, but after the toll line it goes blank/no voice (what does that mean?)
I need to know;
How I can reschedule my exam?
how much I have to pay now?
Do I need to pay twice (once for reinstating my eligibility and once for rescheduling the date)???
pleasee help me out!

But I guess your problem solves mine too. You need to call the prometric. Pay the cancellation fees. Reinstate eligibility and then proceed. Try it out and keep me posted too!

The only thing I know about the Prometric site, is that it doesn't work properly a lot of the time. Even if it keeps telling you your number has already been used. Wait a bit, or try a different browser, and then it'll work. That's what I did.

Your only solution is to speak with an operator at prometric centre.
You will have to pay a fee which depends on your exams zone and how close you were to the exams date before you cancelled.
All of these would be told you by the operator u will speak to.
Don't worry, you will be fine.
Good luck.

It takes few minutes once you get the operator. He/ she can even schedule the exact date and time for you and they would send you a confirmatory email to that effect. Just try and speak with someone at prometric. They are welcoming.
Be sure to get ur credit card with you since they would ask of the number. And yea it's safe to give them your number so don't worry.
