Also share this page on your e-mails and twitters, there is a share this application at the bottom of this page. Just make sure everyone has this information: http://adamunofficial.com/vote/
UPDATE: THIS WHOLE PROCESS CAN BE FULLY AUTOMATED, KEEP SCROLLING DOWN FOR INSTRUCTIONS!!!
  US and INTERNATIONAL USERS: Ok,I’m going to make this simple for you guys.

1.  Watch the countdown timer on the right hand side so you know exactly when to begin voting with East coast area code (ie. 706) HERE: ———————————–>

2. The countdown timer will have a ‘TIME SINCE. When time gets to 4 hours, switch to a West Coast area code (ie. 951) Then you have three more hours to vote. HERE: –>

3. If you are using a cell phone, try using your earpiece to dial and redial. That will keep your hands free to vote with other devices. Most earpieces if you hit the button twice, it will redial for you.

4. You have 7 straight hours to vote. REMEMBER: HAVE FOOD READY, EVERY MINUTE COUNTS.

ADAM’S NUMBERS ARE :
1-866-436-5701
1-866-436-5703
1-866-436-5705
 AGAIN, 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.
 
**** IMPORTANT: NOW the next part of this final step is to download Ghost Mouse. Alternatively search for Autoclicker. This will make the whole process automated for you: 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Instructions:
1.Download program.
2.It downloads a zip file, unzip and double click “Setup Launcher Setup.exe” It will install the program in seconds.
3.Open “Ghost Mouse 2.0”
4.Open voting software. Press record, dial the number and wait 10 seconds, hang up. Press play. This will allow an infinate loop. Do not press stop.
5.Once you determine that it is looping itself effectively, click File>Save> and save the script.
6.When voting opens, open the voting program program again. Open Ghost Mouse, open file you saved earlier. Window must be in the exact same position or else it will not work.
7.The beautiful part, you don’t even have to be at your computer! You can set this to vote for you while texting or calling.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO VOTE IN BOTH TIME ZONES: you need to go gizmo’s actual website and sign into your account from there. Then there’s an option on that page to add “caller ID.” You follow the instructions from there and it cost $4. This takes awhile to process so do it IMMEDIATELY PLEASE. Once this is processed, it will allow you to change your area code to whichever time zone you want to vote. Change area code as many times you want for the $4 dollars. DO IT NOW, IT TAKES A WHILE TO PROCESS! THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO VOTE IN MULTIPLE TIME ZONES, JUST CHANGE YOUR AREA CODE (CALLER ID) TO THE APPROPRIATE VOTING TIME ZONE. Once you finish voting east coast, log onto gizmo’s actual website and under your account section there should be a place to change your caller ID. You can change it to whatever west coast number you want. Same if you want to vote east coast but you’re in west coast. Choose the appropriate number for the zone. It could be any number within the east coast zone but has to be an actual number. PLEASE USE ALL VOTING METHODS AND NOT JUST GIZMO, LANDLINES, CELL PHONES, TEXT IF YOU HAVE AT&T, ETC. DO NOT RELY ON ONE METHOD ALONE.

THANKS FOR SHARING BLUEBERRY.

The MOST important thing is to NOT STOP VOTING.

Power Texting

If you have AT&T and unlimited texting, go here for instructions: http://adamunofficial.com/power-texting-with-att/
If you know someone who also has unlimited texting, try power texting them something a few times, to see if it works (maybe give them a heads up that you’re going to bombard their inbox). Go ahead save Adam Lambert’s number 5701, in your phone.
If you don’t have AT&T, purchase a Go-Phone just to text on voting night.
 
 GIZMO FAQs
Why should I use Gizmo? Where can I download it?
Gizmo can be used to vote for an extra three hours when voting is closed for landlines/cell phones/texts in your time zone. So, if you are on the East coast, you can vote from 1AM-4AM (EST) using Gizmo.
 
Should I use Gizmo instead of using my landline/cell during regular voting hours?
Probably not a good idea. During regular voting hours (i.e. when you can call using your phone) you should only use Gizmo as a secondary method of voting. This is because Gizmo is usually slower than using your landline or cell. So if you have a landline and a cell-phone, focus your voting efforts on using those two phones.
 
How do I dial in Gizmo? And what number should I dial?
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:
 
0018664365701” or “0018664365703” or “0018664365705”.
 
How do I know when my vote has been counted?
Your vote is counted as soon as you hear the words “Thank you…”.
 
Why do I hear a “ping” sound after a few rings? Why do I hear silence after that?
After ringing, you will hear a “ping” noise indicating that the call has connected. It often takes anywhere from 5-15 seconds after the “ping” before you either hear the “thank you for voting” message, a busy signal, or a ‘call could not be completed’ signal.
 
I keep getting busy signals! Is Gizmo working?
Gizmo is working. So long as the lines are open, you should keep trying to vote. Just as people have a difficult time getting through on their cells and landlines, there is often some difficulty voting through Gizmo because the lines are jammed. Eventually, the lines clear up and you will be able to vote more for Adam!
The call button is gray and it won’t go back to green, what do I do?
  1. Make sure you have exited out of the small window that pops out when you call. Wait a few seconds.
  2. If the button is still gray, try deleting a single digit in the number and re-entering it.
  3. 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).

Can I Vote if I subscribe to a digital phone service or VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) service?

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!

  2. lmbtfan says:

    Hi,

    I need clarification on a few things:

    1) Debbie (in Step 2 page) mentioned that for NZ voting time is between Wednesday, 1pm – 3pm, but with Gizmo is Wednesday, 4pm – 6pm. And your instruction above mentioned that we have up to 7 hours to vote using Gizmo? I won’t be home till about 6 pm so if the last voting time is only 6 pm then unfortunately I won’t be able to vote. Bummer! I can’t do it from work.

    2) Do we need to change in Gizmo from NZ to US? Where do I change this?

    I hope I get the reply soon so I can check this site before switching off for the night.

    Many Thanks. I am praying that Adam will win.

    • Marilyn Macey says:

      You need to vote from 4pm-8pm in New Zealand (you will follow USA west coast time), you’ll still have time to vote when you get home. Don’t make any changes on your GIZMO from NZ to USA, just follow Debbie’s instruction. Meanwhile, download VBUZZER as it’s free as well and it works quite well. Good luck…from adam fan, Malaysia.

      • RenieGarland says:

        Hi,
        I am from Hong Kong.
        I am so confused….
        Does it mean that I can start voting right after the show ends on east coast till the end of voting time on west coast? + 3 more hours on Gizmo?
        Wow, then I have more than 15 hours to vote for Adam, am I right? Can somebody tell me about this? Thanks.

        • adamsgpfan says:

          Hi RenieGarland,

          Refer to the countdown timer on the right-hand side of this page and you will know when the voting starts. Basically, the show will take place in another 10 hours time approx and the voting will start an hour after that. I believe that’s how it works for us in SG, MY and HK.

  3. hine100 says:

    Excellent. I normally watch the live stream around 11:30a.m. Wednesday NZ time and start voting after that. Have setup 2 usernames for Vbuzzer, east and west coast times.

    • how do u use vbuzzer? help plz cause ive already downloaded it but i dont kow if im typing the numbers correctly…. whats the difference between country code and area code?

      anyhow it doesnt work 4 me it says i dont have enough credit and im international, any tips?

  4. Hi! A couple of us internationals using vbuzzer need clarification.
    When we set up the account, i assume we place ourselves somewhere in the U.S. and then vote in that state’s voting window. Correct? So if I have two computers, with two different accounts, I could put one in MD and one in CA and vote both blocks of time? Please clarify ASAP so we know what we’re doing! Thanks!

    • Marilyn Macey says:

      You are absolutely right, I did the same thing – one in AZ and another in NY. When you are voting, you don’t have to add 00/+ before the numbers. I tested and it works really well, good luck guys.

      • madamimadam says:

        I’ve just set up a second account on the same computer (two different email addresses required).

        My first one, I had set up saying I was in Montreal, Canada and was given a West Coast area code.

        This second one, I sais I am in New York, so can I hope that the number assigned is an East Coast area code?

        Is there a way of checking out what number the calls are originating from?

        • adam4thewin says:

          Calls from canada aren’t counted. Please choose a valid US state such as California.

  5. adamsApple says:

    I’m not too tech-saavy, how do you make adamunofficial.com your “home page”???

    Also, there may be 4 numbers for the final two contestants, in which case the last one may have a lot less traffic so you can get the maximum # of votes in for Adam!!!!!

    • On your browser Go into Tools > Internet Options > Home Page

      Then change your home page to http://adamunofficial.com

      Thanks for helping out!

      • adamsApple says:

        Thanks Dreamsound, I did it and it worked,!!!!! I hope your instruction above helps others like me who aren’t totally conversant to the new Universal Language…….Computerese!!! Or maybe I’m the only one,LOL.

  6. UK4Adam says:

    Hi, I wonder whether somebody can help. When I test call Gizmo, I don’t hear the message from Google, does this mean that the setup is wrong. Is there another number I can call to test it. Thank you guys.

  7. tweety59 says:

    i signed up for gizmo5 today; it’s working. i’ll be calling from guam (area code 671) and want to know what time (guam time) should i start dialing using gizmo? it’s a silly question but when gizmo dials in to Idol, is there an area code listed? does it matter where in the world you’re at when you use gizmo?
    i’ll be watching the live stream here when it goes on on the east coast; can i vote on gizmo as soon as the east coast starts voting as well?
    anyone pls answer asap!

  8. AdamAddict says:

    Gizmo better be free because I’m gonna vote non stop. My parents will kill me for sure if I actually have to pay,because I’m jobless now! I’m so nervous, please help Adam to win!!

    • What is the verification that it is free?

      • adam4thewin says:

        It won’t let you make a call if it’s not free because you need a “call out” credit first to be able to make outgoing calls. I tried calling my home phone but it didn’t go through and got a message that I need to purchase a credit. All toll free numbers are free, which is why it goes through.

  9. I have great hours for voting in New Zealand: 7 hours is 4:00pm – 11:00pm.

  12. I’m totally confused. I’m live in Singapore and I am in the Pacific time zone. So I vote only at 5:55PM-8:55PM following my own time?

    • RenieGarland says:

      Ruffey – the time in Singapore is the same as Hong Kong, no time difference.
      Once someone can give me a sure answer, you know the exact time as well.

        Hi RenieGarland,

        Refer to the countdown timer on the right-hand side of this page and you will know when the voting starts. Basically, the show will take place in another 10 hours time approx and the voting will start an hour after that. I believe that’s how it works for us in SG, MY and HK.

        • RenieGarland says:

          The voting time should be started at 8:55am – HK, SG, MY time ( 5 mins before the show ends on east coast ) till 7pm – HK, SG MY time ( 4 hours for voting after the show ends on west coast + 3 more hours on Gizmo).

          If I am wrong, someone please correct me.

  13. michelle says:

    there seems to be too much confusion………..can you please help us……..I am in Thailand and need help with the voting times…….When does asia start voting?????

    • adamsgpfan says:

      Hi Michelle, RenieGarland, Ruffey,

      I just replied RenieGarland’s query..we should go by the hour based on the countdown timer provided (see panel on right-hand side of this page). For example, if the voting starts in 11hrs time, then we should be able to vote from ard 9am SG/MY/HK time which should be 10am TH time.

      Dreamsound, please confirm asap. Thanks!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Voting time was post by Debbie in Step 2. Go check that out. Thailand,I think Wednesday from 8-10 am and then again from 11am-1pm. You can vote for 4 hours! Go back to step 2 and check again yourself. It’s all writen here by all these comment. Or look at countdown timer. Start voting after 1 hour the show finish!

      Read all other comments just to make sure.Step2-3

      • adamsgpfan says:

        Just to recap the statement in this page:

        INTERNATIONAL USERS: Watch the countdown timer on the right hand side so you know exactly when to begin voting.

        We are on the right track!

      • AdamAddict says:

        Not 1 hour after the show finish,I mean right after the show finish! You make me so confused! Just check yourself. All answers are here,ok? Take a deep breath and calm yourself and start reading carefully! Phew,I’m so nervous.

        We can watch live from Malaysia and I’ll get up at 8am just to watch A.I. Usually I wake up at 3pm! I’ll get up early to vote for Adam too 🙂

  14. vietnamfan says:

    I need voting time for Vietnam plzzz….

  15. glambertInJapan says:

    Truly appreciated your instruction. I will definitely vote from Japan tomorrow.
    I think I could vote automatically from my 2PCs via gizmo with mouse activities recording and loop play back free software named “Free Macro”
    It is Japanese , hope people can find similar one for automation or try it on English/any other language windows with following steps.

    1. you can download from the following link
    http://facsys.jpn.org/facsys/download/F_MACRO6.LZH
    just extract any folder and launch F_MACRO.exe.

    2. Launch Gizmo and Type one of Adam’s Number
    3. Press “Record” on Free Macro to start recording mouse activities
    4. move mouse to Gizmo and click call button. Gizmo start calling
    5. wait 15seconds. it does not matter the call is busy or not. then click “hung up” button
    6. move mouse to “Free macro” and click “R-stop” button
    7. click “Loop” button (people might find garbled characters because it is Japanese)
    Upper line says “Please enter number of time you would like to repeat”
    Lower line says “check if you would like to keep repeating until you cancel it”
    enter number you want to call or check for repeat calling and press “ok”
    8. start calling automatically (if you failed it, try again from step 1)

    • OK OK IT TOTALLY WORKED SUPER!!! SO THE THING IS HOW DO I MAKE IT STOP? CAUSE IT TOOK CONTROL OVER MY MOUSE JAJAJ!!

      • glambertInJapan says:

        Lola, thank you for testing it. pressing CTRL and ESC key can stop loopback. Now I am installed gizmo on 3 PCs including My Laptop and ready for VOTE ADAM!

        • do u know if u can use it on gizmo pc? (web)

          • glambertInJapan says:

            Hi Lola, I checked also work it with gizmocall (web version). but dreamsound also show us how to automate with ghostmouse. anyhow, lets vote and vote and VOTE for ADAM.

      • RenieGarland says:

        Lola, how did you make it, cos I couldn’t, would you help?

        • Hi there! ill try to explain but still read thouroughly glambertinjapan’s instructions

          1. ok first thing is to have gizmo open
          2. then the best thing 2 do is to make 3 new contacts each with adam’s #s ( name them adam1,adam2,adam3)

          3. Now just select adam1 and click on “FREE MACRO” record. (make sure on the tab above adam’s # appear.)

          4. On gizmo click the green button (to call)
          5. Another tab should appear for the call, let it connect until u hear a ping sound and u can see duration: 0:01 (give it a time of 20 secs)

          6. Move to “FREE MACRO” and click R-stop.
          7. Still in FREE MACRO select loop.

          8. Type in the blank spacebar like the # 1000 or 5,000 if u are greedy jejej and check the little square below to repeat the cycle.

          9. If u want to stop press ctrl+escape

          ALL CREDIT TO glambertinjapan for the tip!!!

  16. Could someone please clarify for me where to set up the time zones on both apps? And how to change timezones when the eastern voting window closes in order to get in the maximum number of votes?

    Thanks.

            OK, just went and changed both my accounts – one in Los Angeles and one in Albany (NY). I googled ‘florist’ in those two cities, found two that had ‘real’ phone numbers (not 1-800), used their address and it worked.

            Now I hope that my calls will originate from the proper phone number tonight!!!!

      PLEASE SOMEONE CONFIRM!!!!!

  27. Jessicaaaaa says:

    This has probably been asked a million times haha but I’m just double checking..

    Voting constantly for Adam tonight using gizmo is totally free right??

    • AdamAddict says:

      I totally understand you. I kept asking that too because I live in Malaysia and I cannot imagine if I have to pay US dollars! But everybody said it’s 100% free so… I’m voting!

  28. How do you tell what area code Gizmo and Vbuzzer are using?

  29. AdamAddict says:

    I already put Adam’s number and ready to call! Put 00 in the front.!Test it already!Check the number millions times! Another 7 hour 30 minutes to go. I’m super excited,I hope you guys too!

    WE CAN DO THIS!! GOOO ADAAAAM!!

    • Keep the energy!!! Wooooooooo 🙂

      • madamimadam says:

        HAS ANYONE CONFIRMED THAT PUTTING “00” IN FRONT OF THE NUMBER DOES NOT ‘SHOW’ THAT THE CALLS ARE FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES?

        I’d rather my votes take a few seconds longer but get counted!!!!!

        Someone please confirm!

  30. I just tried calling Adams number and i heard the “thanks for voting…” Wtf? the show hasnt even started 6h left…

  31. zumazuma13 says:

    First, I want to thank you all for everything you are doing & all of your wonderful help!

    Q: Can you text vote with a Blackberry even if your provider is Verizon?
    My 15 yo son has a Blackberry and I know nothing about using it but he wants to help vote for Adam. I thought I read somewhere that with a Blackberry you could text vote no matter who your provider is.

      NO TEXTING ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE AT&T. IF YOU DON’T HAVE AT&T USE THE PHONE FOR CALLING. USE ALL VOTING METHODS LANDLINES, CELL PHONES, TEXT IF YOU HAVE AT&T, GIZMO, ETC. DON’T RELY ON ONE METHOD. IF YOU DON’T HAVE AT&T GO GET A GOPHONE FROM AT&T STORE (NO CONTRACT), GET UNLIMITED TEXTING WITH IT. IT’S $40 FOR THE PHONE AND UNLIMITED TEXT. THIS WAY YOU CAN TEXT IF PHONE LINES ARE BUSY THE FIRST HOUR OR SO. THEN DO BOTH CALL AND TEXT WHEN IT’S NOT BUSY. REMEMBER IT’S 4 HOURS OF VOTING IN EACH TIME ZONE.

  32. BLUEBERRY says:

    TAKE NOTE—FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO VOTE IN BOTH TIME ZONES: you need to go gizmo’s actual website and sign into your account from there. Then there’s an option on that page to add “caller ID.” You follow the instructions from there and it cost $4. This takes awhile to process so do it IMMEDIATELY PLEASE. Once this is processed, it will allow you to change your area code to whichever time zone you want to vote. Change area code as many times you want for the $4 dollars. DO IT NOW, IT TAKES A WHILE TO PROCESS! THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO VOTE IN MULTIPLE TIME ZONES, JUST CHANGE YOUR AREA CODE (CALLER ID) TO THE APPROPRIATE VOTING TIME ZONE. Once you finish voting east coast, log onto gizmo’s actual website and under your account section there should be a place to change your caller ID. You can change it to whatever west coast number you want. Same if you want to vote east coast but you’re in west coast. Choose the appropriate number for the zone. It could be any number within the east coast zone but has to be an actual number. PLEASE USE ALL VOTING METHODS AND NOT JUST GIZMO, LANDLINES, CELL PHONES, TEXT IF YOU HAVE AT&T, ETC. DO NOT RELY ON ONE METHOD ALONE.

    • madamimadam says:

      Just a tip – I needed to ‘find’ a phone number on the East Coast, so I googled ‘florist’ in New York City (pick any city you like), I found one that posted a ‘real’ number (not a 1-800).

      It works for Gizmo AND VBuzzer for which I took their information, address, etc. and used that.
      .

      What is meant by going to GIZMO ACCOUNT, is go to “Gizmo5.com”, sign in, and you will get your own account information displayed, scroll down some until you find the “CallerID” line. To the very rigfht of it, it will say it is ‘Inactive” in a yellow box. Click on the box and scroll down and to the right of that page and you will find the “$4 CallerId” option.

  34. HELP! I tried changing the Code Area ID and it just says “you need to type number only” but I have typed in 706 for East Coast. Can somebody please give me another/correct Area ID Number for East Coast and West Coast?

  35. ForTheWin says:

    A few thoughts:

    1. REMINDER: All US residents should use texting and landline voting methods FIRST!! Use all other methods, i.e., Gizmo, as a SECOND option.

    2. When it’s time to vote, double check that the numbers for Adam listed on this site are posted correctly. It seems obvious Adam’s numbers will be 01, 03, 05, but DOUBLE CHECK! MAKE SURE THE NUMBERS GIVEN OUT ON THE SHOW MATCH WHAT IS POSTED ON THIS SITE. It sounds like people have pre-programmed (which is smart), but this also makes me nervous.

    3. INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS: All your questions are understandable and we are all in this together! We are down to the wire now and PLEASE do not wait for a response to your questions to get things set up on your end. I’m not sure if you have followed the threads, but from what I can tell 99% of the questions asked have been asked and answered several times before. Please, please, please, check ALL past threads. You should be able to find your answers there. There is not enough time left for each question to be responded to before voting time.

    The countdown clock on the site tells everyone when to vote – apply the hours/minutes to your current clock/watch to determine your voting time. Use a US east coast area code to start voting, then switch to a west coast area code. These have been listed in a previous thread. The East coast is 3 hours ahead of the west coast. DO NOT USE A CANADIAN number!

    Good luck everyone!

  36. HELP! When changing the Area Code Number, do I type in a whole phone number? or just the area code? coz it doesn’t seem to work :-((( Can somebody please give me a correct number for East Coast and West Coast?

    • madamimadam says:

      Google ‘florist’ in the city of your choice (EAST/WEST Coast), find one that has a ‘real’ number (not 1-800), and use that number.

      For VBuzzer, you need their address as well.

      • Thanks a lot for your help! Right I have listed a number in San Francisco for West and Florida for East Coast, hope that’s correct. 😀

  37. AdamAddict says:

    Kris’s fans looks very serious about voting him tonight. Let’s be more serious than them. I won’t dare stop voting until the time is up. Even 5 minutes left,let’s don’t think Adam will be fine and we can rest. That 5 minutes probably make him win. So let’s make our darling Adam win this title. I really can’t accept if doesn’t win. Make him win,all friends over the world!! 🙂 LET’S!!

    • absolutely right every minute every vote will help him even more pllllz wake up and vote your heart out this is it … no more mistakes pllllz we must make him the new idol .. vooooooooooooote

  38. Wow, I made test call now. …And it answered: thanks for voting….How come,it shouldn’t count yet

  39. UK4Adam says:

    Okay, I really don’t want to panic yet, BUT CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME???

    1. I have a MAC and I cannot find the Vbuzzer version compatable for MAC.
    2. I have tested several numbers on Gizmo but I don’t here anything, the call just hangs up after about 15 sec. And I cannot hear the test call from Google, it just rings, I hear the ping and then nothing…
    3. The microphone and everything else seem okay, CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME TO FIGURE OUT WHAT I AM DOIND WRONG?

    I really really want to vote!!!

    • Adambob says:

      Hey, i am using a MAC too, you need to download the MAC version of GIZMO 5. I have tested it, it works with the google test number!!! QUICK

      here’s the link, click “MAC DOWNLOAD” link

      http://gizmo5.com/pc/download/#gizmo31

      Vbuzzer has a PC version ONLY.

      I am also trying to use http://www.icall.com — “icall for the web”. I have tested it, but NOT SURE IF IT”S WORKING.

      So please, download GIZMO5 MAC VERSION NOW!!!!!!

  40. Where can I see my area code? Only to proof, if I can vote.Gizmo 5.Can’t remember, if they even asked me about an area code. thx from New Zealand

    • madamimadam says:

      Go to Gizmo5.com, sign in. You will get your account information. Scroll down to find the SIP number 1-747-XXX-XXXX. That is the number you are actually calling from. Then google that area code and you will find out which Coast you are linked to.

      • My SIP number has dissappeared. What should I do?

        • Should I reinstall, and if what to put in, if they ask me about my mobile number? Sorry, I feel like an idiot right now

          • Now, I can see my SIP number on the webpage: 1-747-45……. So everything is fine than?

            • OMG, my code is Canada.

              • 1-747-450 Does this mean I call from the states or from Canada ? Which one is the area Code? If it is 450 I am calling from Canada. Than how can I change it? HELP PLEASE. I aam running out of time.

  41. Oh drat, I use a Mac and both VBuzzer and this Autoclicker you’ve suggested don’t have Mac versions.
    But anyway, thanks for the suggestions. I’m still going to try Gizmo from here in South Africa, and see if it works….

  42. madamimadam says:

    Has anyone checked that the ‘auto clicker’ programs are not considered ‘power voting’ and have those votes thrown out?

    PLEASE SOMEONE CONFIRM THAT THESE VOTES WILL BE COUNTED BEFORE USING!!!!!

    • THERE IS NO WAY FOR THEM TO KNOW WHETHER IS VOIP OR THERE IS A DEVICE CLICKING ON YOUR COMPUTER

      Kris’ fans are using it!! GO FOR IT!!

  43. HELP! I NEED AN ANSWER TO THIS FAST PLEASE….

    Voting from South Africa – with Gizmo5, if my SIP number is listed as 1 747 4502752 is that a west coast area code? Does the SIP number remain the same all the time – or does Gizmo switch calls around the country?
    And should i start voting with that code from 9pm PST for the West Coast for 4 hours?

    Since in Johannesburg we are 9 hours ahead of PST, that means I start voting at 6am Wed SA time. I think. So excited can’t quite think straight!

    • madamimadam says:

      747 is a West Coast number which means you vote from 9:00p.m. PST. If you want to switch to an EST number, go to Gizmo5.com, sign in, scroll down to CallerID, pay the $4 fee and then you can switch from EST to PST once EST voting is closed.

      You can vote for 7 hours!

      • thanks!

      • oh sorry, one more question. Is the 00 in front of the number really necessary? I read somewhere that it could give away that the call is coming from overseas and therefore illegal?

  44. HELP!!!!!!! says:

    I LIVE IN LONDON. THE ONLY THING THAT CONFUSES ME IS THE AREA CODE THING? DO YOU MEAN **MY** AREA CODE OR THE AREA CODE I HAVE TO CALL TO? WHAT ARE THE CODES??? LOL, I FAIL.

  45. Janedoez says:

    Hi, guys!I’d love some help.i didn´t have time to follow up the power voting step’s 2 and 3 because i couldn´t make the call (besides the work and time zone). i downoaled the gimzo but i was not able to the follow the other steps;there weren´t such options in my phone.I’m begging for some help. I’m in Portugal and been dying to vote for our guy since ever and now i’m kinda desperate cause my time is running out.Anyone?

  47. If I’m in the central time zone, do I need to change the outgoing phone number to vote within that time zone? Or….should I just leave it and vote with my cell and land line during central time zone voting and vote on Gizmo during Pacific time zone calling? Is that what will happen with the 747 area code pre-entered if I don’t change anything? Just want to make sure I do this right. Please confirm. Thanks

    • BLUEBERRY says:

      I highly suggest voting with landlines, cell phone in your time zone and using gizmo as a third voting method. 747 is a west coast area code I believe. If you didn’t purchase the $4 caller ID change, then just stick to this area code and vote with it during west coast voting time, in addition to voting your time with landline and cell phones. For those who did purchase the caller ID change, make sure you have a east coast number (caller ID) for voting east coast time. When it’s west coast voting time, go to gizmo’s actual website, log in and change your number (caller ID) to an actual west coast number and start voting. Remember folks, please use all voting methods, landlines, cell phones, text if you have AT&T, gizmo etc.

  48. How can I change my area code? i am calling from Canada right know. If I go to my profile on Gizmo webpage, I cannot change it. Help me, please

      • Someone in the post before wrote that her first SIP numbers are 1-747-. Same as mine. Someone answered that this means she calls from inside US. But which one is the area code 747 in my case the next 450?

  49. RenieGarland says:

  54. aceofhearts25 says:

    Questions:

    I live in the United States (Midwest) and I downloaded VBuzzer to vote during the West Coast and possibly Hawaii. I also have downloaded GhostMouse.

    Before, I logged on to VBuzzer to make sure that the program worked and I got the appropriate busy signal. Now I have logged on to do the loop with GhostMouse and VBuzzer is giving me the message “you don’t have enough credit…” but it’s a toll free number. I shouldn’t have to buy any.

    Also, when I set up the accounts, I only chose the zipcode, I never put in an area code.
    PLEASE HELP!!!

  55. RenieGarland says:

    How to activate Mofiki’s Auto Clicker to end the call, can some somebody tell me?

  56. Janedoez says:

    But this really works?is it pay-free and does it work abroad the US?

  57. Janedoez says:

    DID u mean mukifi’s auto clicker?

  58. CatEyes says:

    Help…

    I don’t see a file named “Setup Launcher Setup.exe” after unzipping Ghost Mouse.

    There are 7 other files that begin with “Setup”…but nothing with this exact name.

  59. alwaysglam says:

    help with vbuzzer. gizmo up and working (pacific) but want to use vbuzzer for EST. but Vbuzzer giving me error message “not enough credit to make call” – dialing google tollfree works but not the idol number!?

  60. As posted on the Kris fan site. This should be at the top of this blog. The clock isn’t enough.

    Don’t forget, these are the voting times tonight. Times in blue are times where only Gizmo or Vbuzzer will work for voting.

    Eastern: 8:55 PM-1:00AM and 1:00AM- 4:00AM

    Central: 7:55PM-12:00AM and 12:00AM -3:00AM

    Mountain: 6:55PM-7:55PM and 7:55PM-12:00AM and 12:00AM-2:00AM

    Pacific: 5:55PM -8:55PM and 8:55PM-1:00AM

  61. Once you set up Ghost mouse, how do you get control of your mouse again.. I somehow managed to make it stop, but I don;t know how I did it.

  62. I used the setup that has application beside the name

  63. madamimadam says:

    VBuzzer is crapping out – Gives message you don’t have enough credit to place a 1-866 call – I tried to buy $10 worth of credit -= and the program won’t let me get past the payment options – just hangs!!!

    WTF is going on????????????????

  64. I’m getting a lot of silent calls. Is anyone else having this problem?

  65. Mostly busy signals for me (got it set on auto-dial which really helps). Raw numbers on Dial Idol don’t look good for our boy.

    I’m worried.

  66. I CANT VOTE THROUGH GIZMO……im international and its not a toll number any more guys!! the machine says I need credit……#$%*!@

  67. roselle says:

    hey.. what if it doesn’t say ‘thank you for voting’?!?

  68. HELP.
    I DIAL AND I HEAR THE PING, BUT ALMOST RIGHT AFTER THAT, THERE’S THE SOUND THAT happens when someone HANGS UP. what is happening? am i getting through to Adam or not? There’s not “Thanks for Voting” sound or even a busy tone. It’s just the sound when someone hangs up and the duration is at like 0:00.

    HELP! I NEED TO GET TO ADAM!

  69. adamsgpfan says:

    I am on Gizmo and sometimes I could get through and all i heard is a “ding” sound then it hanged up! is it right? did the vote get thru?

  70. adamsgpfan says:

    Finally! I managed to cast some votes on Gizmo..heard the “thank you” announcement..hee…

  71. adamsgpfan says:

    Hey everyone, Gizmo is working very well NOW…am voting for ADAM!!!

    Calling all Asian fans to vote now!!!

  72. hi fans!!! reported votings right now: 10 times total through gizmo im frustrated cause its too little but my bro and i are gonna keep trying

  73. I’m from the Philippines and I’ve been trying to vote for an hour or so, I’ve only managed 4 votes. Been disconnected a lot.

    Still, I’m going to continue!

    GO TEAM ADAM!

  74. Adam has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever herd. If Adam doesn’t win, I will be so sad and confused. Chris is ok but I seriously thought he was gunna leave when it came down to the top 4 and someone you think is going to get eliminated long ago doesn’t really deserve the title of American Idol. Adam can sing circles around Kris and everyone knows it.

  75. I think we crashed vbuzzer, or they started blocking Idol numbers. When I tested it at about 11:30am PT they were taking votes (yes, i got the “Thank you” message when i called at 11:30 both on my land line and vbuzzer so i voted for about a 1/2 hour until it stopped taking votes. when i went to turn it back on this evening I only get “you do not have enough credit”, even though other toll free numbers go through. I never did get gizmo to work, but at least i have my two cell phones, the modem on my computer (dialidol) and the people i recruited.

  76. hine100 says:

    Hey internationals, using media ring and getting thru well on the 03 number. Instead of putting in the 1, you just type 8664365703 and it will put in the 1 automatically. Am getting thru great. Have registered as being from New York ( I used to live in upstate New York) around Syracuse so used them as the city and area code. Just google for an area code from there.

    Heres voting from NZ.

  77. lmbtfan says:

    Hi, I used Gizmo (my setup is NZ) and managed to put thru 3 votes but it jammed so many times. So I have to close and open it again and again. I hope my votes will be accepted (I heard the thank you for voting contestant one). Someone in this thread said I don’t have to change the country from NZ to US. Can someone tell me if this is correct? I don’t want to votes but find out that they do not count because they find out I am in NZ. Will keep try to votes some more. How many more hours to go before it close?

  78. lmbtfan says:

    After I voted I cannot hang up as GIZMO is not responding but I heard the voice message again “Thanks for voting contestant one”. Does that mean I voted more than once eventhough I have not click the phone button again? Or was it just repeating the thank you message?

  79. RadicalRich says:

    Some people are saying that if Adam doesn’t win they’ll never watch Idol again. I beg to differ…

    After Adam wins [and he will win by the way] why would you even need to watch Idol any more. They may as well pack it up after tomorrow no matter who wins. There won’t be any good reason to watch. We’ve already got all the Idol we’ll ever need. Mr. Adam Lambert.

    Never mind an Idol, we’ve got our American Icon. Adam the Icon.

    He is such a fine showman. He’s such a consummate gentleman and a genius. So humble and thankful and respectful he is to the other contestants, judges and the band. He is so very appreciative and complimentary to his parents, his voters and his fans. What else could you possibly need in an entertainer, or in any person for that matter. He is a true class-act in every sense of the word.

    And what a great ambassador he will be for the United States? He’s going to be such an inspiration to so many people with his brand of respect, humility and Americanism. He’s going to be able to span across most every genre’ of music and appeal to more people than probably anyone else ever has. All he has to do is stay true to himself, resist the temptation to stray from the path he is presently on, and he will attain heights never before reached by any artist.

    The AI Season 9 show next year, if they are foolish enough to do it again, is undoubtedly going to seriously pale in comparison to this year cause it was just so unbelievably good. So absolutely good because of Adam Lambert, and only because of Adam. Even his perceived minor imperfections made him more real and entertaining than any of the other contestants. The others were OK, but none of them had the concentration and determination to do as well as Adam did with each and every performance.

    Just wait until all the factoids and figures come out about the number of views and listens of his various videos and songs, and TV interviews and everything in between. Just wait until you see the money he has generated for the iTunes company from the song and video downloads. Just look at all the unlicensed merchandise that’s already for sale at this point and he’s only just begun. Wait until the ratings of his performances are tabulated and published. Just wait until the figures come out about how he single handedly brought out of the dust the popularity of all the classic songs he performed and how much the original writers and artists and groups have gained by his exposure of them. It’s going to be staggering the number of people who absorbed everything there is to absorb of Adam as they could since he started. People are going to crave for him and his talents more than a drowning man wants another breath or an addict wants another hit.

    Adam may even have the ability to soften a lot of those hardened hearts and haters out there who might realize his gifts of kindness and respect, and how much we all could learn and benefit by the fine example he set with his performances, his character, his comments, his forthright personality and his genuinely kind hearted nature all along the way.

    It is a rare gift indeed to find such a person as Adam in these times. Let’s all use and follow his exemplary attitude of determination, respect and kindness, and witness as he embarks on a journey most of us can only dream of, but who each of us can make the best of any path we are on if we can follow his example.

    Rock on Mr. Lambert, Rock on!!

  80. total right now 50 votes on gizmo + 60 votes my bro + 22 my friend so far

  81. lmbtfan says:

    RadicalRich, what a great article. I agree 100% with you. I hope Adam will read it.

    Rock On Adam. I am looking forward to see you as American Idol Winner tomorrow night.

  82. Hi all,

    Just let you guys know. I only get through 15 times through gizmo5 and gizmocall in 3 hours. Vbuzzer does not work for me. I am nervous….

    You have time to set up during the show!!!!

  85. i thought so….,i’m getting thru more often than i expected to by phone

  86. CatEyes says:

    I think Gizmo is also clogged up. I’ve only gotten 3 votes thru on Gizmo, and now when it is busy, I have to stop the task on my computer, restart it, etc. Not very functional at the moment. Maybe it will come back once the voting slows down a bit.

  87. yeah the regular fone works better!!! hope evrybody voted 4 adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. i’ve gotten quite a number of good calls in by cellphone….many right in a row

    I hope the power calling is holding up. I feel like it’s strange that I actually get through pretty often.

  89. I too, from Hong Kong, only managed to get thro’ 3 times & has been disconnected so many times….yuk!
