"Invalid" access codes cost me $115 today
Today just before 9:00, I got a call from the one district still in session, yet once again my access codes are not recognized when the system calls me.

I immediately called the system back, and got through with no problem,but of course there was no job.

I never have a problem when I call the system, but half the time they call me, I get three attempts, and then it says "Goodbye"

The sub tech, who is generally not too friendly, wrote back in a huge condescending font reminding me what my codes were, stating they should work. She is convinced I am entering them wrong.

Can anyone speculate what the problem could be? Is it their flawed system or my cheap cell phone?

Total monetary losses this year total $651, although I hope to get $286 back.

Your phone?
Could it be your phone? We had a house phone go bad and we weren't aware of it. After a lot of problems with computer systems not recognizing our numbers we hit, we realized it was the phone and replaced it. I don't know if it could be your cell phone though.

It could be my phone, but I have no problem with my codes from my two other districts.

Conversely, if it was on the districts end, the sub tech might have been less rude in her reply, and would not have assumed I was entering the wrong codes.

Nevertheless, it should have been obvious to her I was putting in the correct codes since I mentioned that I always gain access when I call the system.

I'm not sure what you mean by access codes? Are you referring to your AESOP PIN number?

This district uses ' smartfinder express" which requires an access code and a pin number. I don't which one was the problem.
