Besides the software at dialidol, apparently if you use your cell phone to send text messages, you can vote very quickly as well. You could vote 10 times a minute - or more. It's a LOT faster than the "redial" button on your phone. Using redial, I can only get 1 or 2 votes per minute.

Text messaging is often charged by the number of messages or the length of the messages. Some companies (AT&T for one) also offer a flat rate for text messaging of something like $15/month for unlimited messages.

The one limitation of dialidol.com is that although it can measure busy signals, it can't tell how many people are text voting.
