Voting for this season's American Idol is over, but some people can't seem to get the phone number out of their head.

"1-866-I-D-O-L-S" said Sophia Ruiz.

Ruiz is an American Idol fanatic.

The Bryan salon owner tried to vote for David Cook 50 times this week.

She says that's nothing, compared to the dialing she did for Aggie Jason Castro.

"I had three phones going at one time. I got in approximately 868 times. At one time it was super comical, I grabbed the remote control to the TV instead of the cell phone. Everyone was laughing at me, but I'm a huge American Idol fan, it was worth every minute of it."

Ruiz says she really wanted Jason Castro to come to town. Now that the show is over, she can give her fingers a break.
