Hey Lifehacker, I just learned that Vodafone plan to stop offering all Crazy Johns plans in September. I've been offered a new deal but it's nowhere near as good as the shared plan I have currently. Nothing Vodafone offers that is incentive enough to switch and go on a contract. But if I don't change before the switch-off, will I be "rolled over" automatically?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Hi Lifehacker, I am currently a Crazy John's customer for mobile phone and mobile internet (with 18 months to run on a 24 month contract), and with the news that the brand will be absorbed by Vodafone in the coming weeks, I am wondering what my contractual rights may be should I wish to terminate my service given my past experiences with Vodafone have been less than satisfactory! I didn't sign up to deal with Vodafone -- are there any outs here? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Not So Crazy

Dear Lifehacker, I have my mobile phone with Crazy John's and just received notification that my bill is going up by $1.10 to send out a paper invoice. I was a bit miffed at this when Optus did it years ago and was wondering about the legalities of it. I have a small freelance business and like the paper invoicing for my records. Can I send them an invoice for processing for the same amount and get away with it? Thanks, Paperlover
