So we’ll see if D&B contacts me. Check back soon!
Ok today is 01/09/13, Wednesday, just two short days after my last update.

Selecting option 2 again:
Again back to here:
Again with the same error! So I’m contacting support. Hopefully they can help me 😦
I received quick turn-around from Apple support so I’m trying again Thursday 01/24/2013 and run into this:
So I’ll have to call D&B tomorrow:
