    … if the decision was made yesterday, the automated line won't tell you anything, it's just too early (this was in my case), try again on Monday or Tuesday :)

    Not everyone receives a text. I know you received other texts but that doesn’t mean anything. The automated payment line often gives incorrect information too and I agree that it may not have been updated yet.
    It’s also possible that they couldn’t see what the decision was because it takes up to 24 hours for the system to update.

    It’s very rare for them to go against the report but I have seen it happen here.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
