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

11861 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is frustratingly bad at 10 Jan 2011 09:26:03 PM
I decided approx 6mths ago to sign on for another contract, as all previous ones were as good as any other supplier offered. I was told by the person I was signing with, I can get back on my original plan once I signed up again. All I had to do was contact the call center & change back. {I had to sign on for a different plan to get a new phone}

After going through everything & signing on for another 24mths, I was told "sorry your old plan doesn't exsist anymore". I explained this was unexceptable & wanted out of the contract, I was then advised bad luck you have signed the contract {this would of sent my bill through the roof}. After about a week of trying to resolve through the Vodafone call center. I contacted the telephone ombudsman to get it resolved, Vodafone mysteriously found a way to put me back on my original cap, they claim does not exsist anymore!

They still find a way of stuffing my monthly budget by not billing one month, then twice the next. I'm definitley gone when my contract is up! This privacy issue is the icing on the cake.
