Kris’ fans are planning a massive operation to try to take the title that Adam so deserves. Unite, brothers and sisters, we shall counter-attack.
Now, we are not going to kinda’ copy their tactics, we are going to do the EXACT same thing and then some more.
STEP 1: EVERYONE NEEDS TO DOWNLOAD GIZMO BY SUNDAY. ON SUNDAY WE ARE ALL GOING TO TEST IT.
DOWNLOAD GIZMO HERE: http://gizmo5.com/pc/
It will only take you a couple of minutes, please do this before you continue reading.
** This works for International fans too, so all of you guys on the Phillipines, Brazil, and Europe that are dying to vote, this is your chance.
Ok, guys, time for STEP 2:
The “00? helps connect the call faster in Gizmo. On voting night, you should add “00? in front of Adam’s number as well.
2. CALL. As you type in the number, the gray circular button should turn green. This is the “Call” button. Click it to call.
3. CONNECT. A new smaller window will pop out and you should hear a ringing noise,then a “ping” sound (meaning that the call has connected), and after a few seconds, a “Call’s recorded, Google”.
On voting night, expect a delay before the gray call button turns green.
FINAL STEP OF OPERATION AND JUSTICE FOR ALL:
Steps 1 and 2 were only preparing everyone for this final step.
This is IT, here’s the information you NEED TO KNOW. I hope you are well rested, this is a big day for all of us.
Begin by making this page your home page, even if it is only for today. This will sky rocket our ratings on Google and get this message to more people.
If you do not want to make this site your home page press CTRL + D and bookmark, this also helps. We must be on the first page of Google today.
Be sure to share this page with Adam Lambert fans all over the world: http://adamunofficial.com/vote/
INTERNATIONAL USERS: Watch the countdown timer on the right hand side so you know exactly when to begin voting.
ADAM’S NUMBERS ARE :
The official voting window for this week will be 4 hours, and with the use of Gizmo, we can all extend that to 7 hours. Whatever it takes to win and cancel out Kris Allen fans’ efforts. Have water and food ready, stay in our chat room and be sure to motivate each other. You can chat and vote at the same time. Avoid any distractions that are non-Adam Lambert related. This is a test of endurance and stamina.
The MOST important thing is to NOT STOP VOTING AND TO STAY MOTIVATED.
When calling using Gizmo, add “00? to the beginning of the number for better results. For those who have experience issues in the past with Gizmo, you may find the programs such as vbuzzer may work better for you.
Eastern: 8:55 PM-1:00AM and 1:00AM- 4:00AM (Gizmo)
Central: 7:55PM-12:00AM and 12:00AM -3:00AM (Gizmo)
Mountain: 6:55PM-7:55PM (Gizmo) and 7:55PM-12:00AM and 12:00AM-2:00AM (Gizmo)
Pacific: 5:55PM -8:55PM (Gizmo) and 8:55PM-1:00AM
To dial, just type in the number in the space provided (right next to the small phone icon). Be sure to dial “00” and then Adam’s number which will be:
- Make sure you have exited out of the small window that pops out when you call. Wait a few seconds.
- If the button is still gray, try deleting a single digit in the number and re-entering it.
- If that doesn’t work, go to FILE and then EXIT and restart Gizmo. (Do not exit by clicking on the “x” button on the top right hand corner of the window as that simply minimizes Gizmo rather than exiting out of Gizmo)
Gizmo is completely frozen? Is this normal? What do I do?
You can expect Gizmo to freeze up several times on voting nights – it’s normal and probably due to the high call volume to the AI lines. Usually if you wait a few seconds it’ll start working again. If not, try step 3 from the previous question.
I’ve heard a DJ say that using Gizmo is cheating, is it?
No. The American Idol official statement is that VOIP programs may be used for voting.
None of these FAQ’s have helped me so far. What gives?
Try the Gizmo support page here: http://support.gizmo5.com/
I hate Gizmo with a passion! What do I do??
Try downloading vbuzzer here: http://www.vbuzzer.com/ . Some find this program to be more cooperative than gizmo. Ideally you want to have both.
Some people have reported better success by putting no dashes between the numbers. Some have also reported more success by switching lines every so often (i.e. from 01, to 03, to 05).
Yes, you can vote if you subscribe to some digital or internet-based phone systems, such as Vonage or Skype [Gizmo is one, too]. However, note that digital phone and VOIP services **often re-route outgoing calls to a different geographical location from which the call is being made.** As a result, you may only be able to vote in the voting window to which your call has been re-routed. If you are trying to vote in the regular voting window for your region and your call is re-routed outside of your region by your service provider, you will not be able to vote (instead, you will hear a fast busy signal). **However, you still have the availability to vote during the other voting window.** For further information, contact your digital phone or VOIP service provider.”
The “legality” of using Gizmo and voting outside your own time zone, Gizmo is a VoIP service, which is totally valid for AI. Don’t scare people into not using it b/c they think the votes don’t count or it’s unethical or something. It’s totally legit – even for use outside your area’s voting window!
More questions? Our Adam Lambert fans have the answers. Comment below.
Remember everyone is responsible here to help people out on the comments below.
ROCK THE VOTE!!
Now if you are a hardcore fan like most of us, go outside and write in the back window of every car that you and your family owns: “VOTE FOR ADAM LAMBERT”
They have window paint pens at craft stores (I even saw them at Dollar Tree) you can also use shoe polish on windows ONLY- not on the paint.
Then take a good picture of it, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and your friends and family.
Your picture may appear on this site. Examples will be posted at the very bottom of this post.
Thanks for sharing those pics Kelly
If you’re living abroad, or if you can’t make the call from a phone you can call for free ONLINE by following the directions below:
OPTION 1 (THIS IS WHAT WE ARE ALL DOING – ALREADY DISCUSSED)
Gizmo5 (works for International and US) and vBuzzer
You can use Skype (works for International and US):
Dial Idol (works for only US residents):But ONLY works right now with dial-up for all the numbers;
For Gizmo, I suggest using the second option(on the website) on how to vote for ADAM
Try testing the softwares with Google’s Toll-Free number:
1800-466-4411 American Idol numbers are also toll-free so if you succeed in calling Google, you would also be able to call in to vote for ADAM If you are calling the number (1-866-IDOLS-XX):
– The phone lines tend to jam up directly after the show finishes and often times you’ll get a busy signal. Call continuously your voting will be more efficient and will more likely to count for ADAM.
-If you have a cell phone and a home phone, try calling for both. You don’t have to talk with anyone to vote, so you can just continue to re-dial on either phone for the duration of the two hours.
– It’s a toll free number, so you shouldn’t have to worry about phone charges.
If you are an AT&T costumer:
You can vote without having to make the call. You just have to text the word “VOTE” to the special 4 digit number that will appear next to ADAM’s Toll-Free number on the day of the show. You can text as many times as you like. Since standard text rates apply you MUST get unlimited texting for $20 this month. Then you can send up to 5,000 text votes every hour.
Text messages is a BETTER vote because you are keeping the lines free for non AT&T customers.
As with the toll-free voting, each contestant will also be assigned his or her own AT&T Mobility text message number during the show — this 4 digit short code number will appear on your TV screen alongside the toll-free phone numbers. To vote by text if you are an AT&T Mobility subscriber, simply watch American Idol on FOX each week, input the word ‘VOTE’ into a new text message on your cell phone and send this message to the 4 digit short code number assigned to your contestant of choice (such as 5701 for Contestant 1). Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers. If done correctly, you will receive a message confirming your first valid vote during the voting window regardless of how many contestants you vote for, or how many votes you cast.
AT&T Mobility text message voting will open at the end of each performance show and stay open for at least 2 hours, subject to local time zone limitations. Voting will NOT be open during the show or outside the two hour time period determined by the area code on your cell phone. Votes sent outside of the voting window will be invalid, and you will receive a message saying the window is closed. If you are sending your text vote from a cell phone with an area code that is in a different time zone from that in which you are calling, the network will accept or reject your vote based on the time zone of your area code. So, if you have a New York cell phone area code but are voting from Los Angeles during the West Coast voting window, your vote will not be accepted. Try calling the toll-free number from a land line during the West Coast voting window instead.
