I am able to dial-in on your number but the system is ignoring my PIN. Why?
This problem is most likely linked to an issue with your handset. It may be that your telephone is not sending out the correct DTMF tones, hence preventing our system from identifying the keys pressed. It might be advisable to try another handset for your next call and to contact us again if this problem persists.
