Wow. Have to say this is great. Have not logged into metalink in a while and just when I need it. Go figure.

I also had a separate OTN account that was not linked to and CSI numbers.

Is there a solution for this problem as I would like to get this resolved?

Any luck other than a just wait as see approach? Received on Thu Nov 12 2009 - 13:50:25 CST
