I received my biometrics appointment letter less than 2 weeks following NOA1. You might want to follow up with USCIS.

I would try an info pass at your local office to see what stage your application is at. I think you'd have more success that way then by calling them. Did you happen to move or change address at all between the rfe?

Good idea, cause if they generate a biometrics letter at the local office, you can probably do a walk-in apt for biometrics.

Call them ASAP. Not attending your biometrics appointment can result in your case being considered abandoned.

Hey guys. I talked to them and they made a service request. It appears that my ead was approved 2 weeks ago and that I had missed the biometric appointment, but I haven't been notified in any way whatsoever of either the approval or biometric appointment !! Although, they write that they have rescheduled it and enclosed a copy of the asc appointment... Does that mean in the email or by mail?
