As someone who went through this, just keep your eye out on the finalist list when it's announced. When the finalist calls went out for the quarter I eventually won my answering machine had stopped working, and I was rarely home since I was doing a lot of overtime. I found out I was a finalist when the press release went out.
Joni not being able to contact you will not stop you from placing in the top 8 as a finalist. However, should that happen you should contact her immediately afterwards so she knows the situation. I did that and gave her my cell (since my house phone was no longer an option) so she'd be able to reach me later on when first, second, and third place were chosen.
