Vodafone and Samsung invite you to crack The Vault – join Ausdroid’s crew!

Vodafone The Vault
Update: As of this morning, we have unfortunately filled all 50 positions we’re allowed in the Ausdroid Vault crew.

Last night, Samsung and Vodafone announced a nationwide social competition known as The Vault with a grand prize of 50 – yep, fiftyGalaxy S5 phones. Participants can form crews of up to 50 people and pool their talents, wits and resources in order to win the phones.

There’s a weekly combination you’ll need to discover from clues given out daily by Vodafone and Samsung, and a weekly challenge will involve shooting particular photos or videos for additional clues to the combination and prizes. Clues might be puzzles, riddles or even crosswords. Crews must crack the weekly combination to proceed to the Grand Final on Sunday July 6.

Participants can also take advantage of an offer to receive a Gear Fit and a 12-month subscription to Samsung Music Hub free if they take up a Galaxy S5 on a 12- or 24-month contract with Vodafone.

The competition opens on Monday – that’s when the first combination will be available to crack online. There’s also a handy video to explain it all!

Let’s do it!

Think you’ve got what it takes? Awesome – we do, too!

We know from chatting with Vodafone staff last night that geographical spread will be advantageous to cracking the combinations, so that’s where you come in, readers! We want to form a team that includes people in every state, every capital city (and some minor ones too) who have local knowledge and are willing to go out and participate in the challenges.

If we win, you’re getting a Galaxy S5. For free. What have you got to lose?

Ausdroid’s crew is open for signups! We’ll form a Google+ community and coordinate team communication and combination results there.

When you click the link, you’ll go to The Vault website. Sign up there for an account and then you’ll be able to join Ausdroid’s crew.

We’ll get the crew and community up and running over the next few days.

Whether you join our crew or not, good luck to everyone who’s entering! We’ll be following The Vault as the competition – and our crew – progresses!

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Should we have a Google+ hangout thingy to coordinate this thing? At the moment, I’m just trying out combinations at random…

Not interested at all in considering thinking about going back to VF, Jason.
Added to that, with my lousy mobility, I’d be useless at trying to do any of the Bris local geog stuff.
