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

1194 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is Vodafone Epic Fail at 20 Dec 2010 11:47:07 AM
21 Dec 2010 09:40:28 PM: You're the only one. Sorry.
22 Dec 2010 09:14:04 PM: If you would like service from an Australian vodafone has great staff in the store whom u can ask to call customer care on your behalf. You can explain the issues you are having with the phone and the service. Troubleshooting will be done, credit will be placed on your account, and if teh issue cannot be resolved you can be released from your contract.
23 Dec 2010 10:15:23 PM: You can only be released out of your account after tens of hours on hold, numerous complaints and then complaining to the TIO. Vodafone doesn't let you leave that easily, it takes a lot of time and effort.
23 Dec 2010 11:54:41 PM: Sweetheart you must be really missing somthing in your life grow up its a phone service
24 Dec 2010 07:56:03 PM: hahha..Emma, pure brilliance! Best.Comment.Here. And to the last post - yes it is *only* a phone service that isn't working properly for a lot of people, so they come to this site, *only* for sharing the difficulties people have been having with said service. You must be missing something in your life also - empathy and a sense of humour.
27 Dec 2010 07:35:19 AM: Totally agree with the comment above. All the Vodafone employees who are commenting on here are totally devoid of any empathy or sense of humour. It's a huge part of their problem. The CEO apologies and they still try to blame every problem on the customer.
27 Dec 2010 11:36:48 AM: That's great Emma. And yes! That effing Lara! That is what made the phone calls so painful. She's deaf and patronising!
5 Jan 2011 11:33:45 PM: To the two VF customers below

@22 Dec 2010 11:14:04 PM: BULL!!!!!! I've been going around in circules with VF for bloody ages and now its with the TIO with no resolution so far. release me from a contract, I think I'll see birds fly upside down first!.

@24 Dec 2010 01:54:41 AM: Actually mate my phone is a connection to my cutomers, as a small business owner my phone and data services are FUNDAMENTAL without which I lose money. Hence why my phone is now thousand little pieces and I have another contract with Telstra who are providing a better saervice and customer support.
22 Jan 2011 10:44:06 AM: LOL pure gold Emma
