I sent an e-mail to suncert@prometric.com 2 days ago and I haven't gotten a response yet. How long does it usually take?

Hi Joe,

I saw something somewhere (maybe the Certification Results forum) that the wait for fixing permissions was about 2 days. I took me about a week to get the permissions fixed earlier this month. Based on your comment it looks like it's taking longer than 2 days now. Anyway, I would guess it shouldn't take longer than a week. What can I say? This amazes me, but then many things amaze me. By the way, you should at least have received a canned auto-reply saying something like we are currently backed-up dealing with e-mail sent after such and such a date. They may even give an estimated time for servicing your request in the auto-reply. If you haven't gotten an auto-reply yet then things are worse than they were before (insert more amazement here). I would be tempted to check the address to which you sent your request to make sure it went to the right place (should be SunCert@Prometric.com I believe).
Hope this helps,
George

Joe -
I requested permission to upload on Wednesday, Jan. 21 and got the canned reply. Then, on Thursday, Jan. 22 I got a real reply that they did it. I haven't uploaded yet because I'm not ready, but I wanted to get the permission granted early so I don't have to wait for them when I become ready.
Did you get the original canned reply? I think mine said something about them only doing upload/download requests every other day.
My guess is yours got lost in the shuffle somewhere if you are still waiting after 8 days.

Yea I got the auto reply. I've now sent two more e-mails. It's crazy because I have been done with the project for a week and a half and just need to upload so I can take the exam. I don't see why it has to be such a big deal.

I'd be going nuts if I was you. Although, you're in a better position than me - you're done and I'm not.
Just fyi, here is the info from my original email request to them. Hopefully you provided them with everything they need.

I would like to get permission to upload my Sun Certified Java Developer
assignment.
I purchased this exam (CX-310-252A) on (my purchase date here) .
Purchase Confirmation # xxxxxx
Prometric Student ID# xxxxxxx
User Name xxxxxxx
Please let me know if you need any other information from me.

Good luck Joe, and keep us posted.
TJ

Thanks Terry. It's been 2 weeks since I asked for permission and today I finally uploaded my assignment. I sent them e-mail from four different accounts until finally one of them got a response the next day. Strange system...
