A plea for help from the cell phone messaging savvy ones out there!
I'm trying to "vote" for a band (30STM), but I can't figure out how you do it. Here are the instructions:

Cingular subscribers will select the winning band by casting their votes via text message "short codes" on their wireless phones.


These include:
-- 30 Seconds to Mars = 7193

I've tried:
- Pressing "7193*" and hitting "ring"
- Pressing "7193" and hitting "ring"
- Texting "7193" or "7193*" - but, what number would I send it to?
- Texting nothing, and sending it to "7193*"

I kept getting the message that I need to send to a number with 10 digits.

I've never "voted" on a cell phone before (like they do for "American Idol"). Perhaps one of you has, and can help out? Thanks!

Darn... I get the "your call cannot be completed as dialed; please check your number and dial again" message.

I don't know...are you supposed to text it TO that number? Like for AI, they say text the word vote to something like 4507 or something like that. So maybe text vote to that number? That's the only thing I could think of to try. Sorry I can't be of more help than that. I usually phone in votes rather than texting.
