A few weeks after the Affordable Care Act website rollout, President Obama reminded would-be customers that, despite the glitches, the phone lines were still open and the exchanges were in business.

Don’t let problems with the website deter you from signing up…The phone number for these call centers is 1-800-318-2596. I want to repeat that—1-800-318-2596,” Obama said Monday.

msnbc’s own Mika Brzezinski tested the phone lines during the Morning Joe broadcast and got a hold of an operator in about a minute. 

But have you been so lucky? We want to hear your Obamacare stories—whether you were able to get through on the website on the first try, or if you had to go back again and again, like Sally Kohn, before being able to buy affordable insurance. 

Use the “Comments” to tell us your story. We want to hear from you.
