FINAL STEP OF OPERATION AND JUSTICE FOR ALL:
*** ATTENTION: THIS IS CLOSE BY 1% WITH A SLIGHT LEAD FROM KRIS ACCORDING TO DIAL IDOL. YOUR VOTES IN THE NEXT 54 minutes WILL DETERMINE WHO WINS. DO NOT STOP, THIS IS EXTREMELY CLOSE ****
THE FUTURE OF ROCK DEPENDS ON THE NEXT 54 MINUTES…
IF YOUR TIME ON EAST COAST IS OVER YOU MUST DOWNLOAD GIZMO OR OTHER APPLICATION THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO KEEP VOTING. EAST COASTERS, YOU HAVE TO KEEP VOTING UNTIL 4AM, WE MUST GO ALL THE WAY!!
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.
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.
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!
