26 Mar 2012 - Update Highest Rated Pain Stories Highest Rated Gain Stories Vodafail Local Facebook Page
Dear visitor,

Since its inception Vodafail.com has made a significant contribution towards raising awareness of the problems and issues faced by Vodafone customers.

Vodafone Australia customers have had the opportunity to voice their concerns, their fears and their troubles from every corner of Australia and beyond our borders. You have gathered the courage to stand up for your rights as consumers and to make your voice heard.

Each and every person who shared their story should have a sense of pride in this achievement and the changes that have occurred since the start of Vodafail.com.

More recently, traffic to Vodafail.com has declined significantly. Having achieved the goal of raising awareness and promoting concrete action in early 2011, we have now reached the point of closing Vodafail to new complaints. The site will remain online for as long as possible as a reminder and an example of what is possible when we share our experiences.

It has been a privilege to run this initiative and I'm am forever grateful for the help and support I've received. In particular I would like to thank Melissa, David and Travis for their continued efforts over the past 15 months. I'm also thankful and humbled by the support of ACCAN, Choice magazine and a wide range of media outlets, blogs and websites.

You can still browse existing stories and find out how to file a complaint if you are experiencing problems.

Until next time,

Adam Brimo

11585 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is Extreme Privacy Breech at 9 Jan 2011 11:14:54 PM

***********PRIVACY WARNING**********

Without releasing the personals details of others I have been waiting for the right opportunity to expose a certain event I have experienced on the Vodafone Network. Yes I have all the regular problems, drop outs, poor reception even in prime locations, connection delays and so on. But the most concerning of all issues was my recent experience with voicemail. I have been on multiple occasions listening to my voicemail box to retrieve my messages and the most absurd thing happened. I began to hear messages which had nothing to do with me, in fact after listening for a while I discovered I was somehow patched into Vodafones message server and I was being streamed message after message which belonged to almost anyone and everyone. I was able to record details of individuals, their personal lifes, contacts and who they were talking to. Everything from the average joe to local politicians. After this occurred I began to freak out, what if others can hear my messages, what if this error has occurred before. While I waited sometime thinking to myself what to do about this it happened again. Another call to voicemail and instead of my messages endless playback of message after message belonging to everyone else. This only stopped when I decided to hang up and no input controls such as delete or skip message would work.


There are more instalments to this saga, including vodafone's denial and ignorant responses, unfortunately at this stage I will have to post that later.
Also want to point out, vodafone have poorly managed their merger with the three network, their reception is extremely bad when compared to both Optus and Telstra, internet service is very poor both speed and reception wise. DO NOT USE VODAFONE.
