If you are an "unregistered" filer which most inventors are then they only way to update the filing is to do it by postal mail.

If it were me I would just re-file everything and re-pay the fee and then see if you can get a possible refund on the first submission.

I submitted my Provisional Patent through the EFS online system last night and had great difficulty as the website kept refreshing and presenting errors. Finally, I was able to submit and pay my fees. Unfortunately, I noticed my specification page was not one of the listed documents that I uploaded. Is there any advice on how to add this page either via fax or resubmit through EFS?

I was hoping not to have to wait for USPTO to kick back the application via mail a few weeks from now stating missing docs.
