Yup. So... there are pros and cons for charging for votes. I think the free voting option is better. After all, the winners of all American Idol so far has been moderately ok rite?
I'd hate to be the parent of someone who found out their kid was voting hundreds of times a night if there was any sort of charge. That would make for an... interesting phone bill.
this is how text messaging works. You're paying a small fee to submit your vote. I prefer the texting to calling.

I think it creates a great let down when there are millons of votes for a person and then the albums come out and sales are low.
