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

12260 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is 100% FAIL at 12 Jan 2011 01:27:01 PM
Second time I've posted here...

Called 1555 3 times today (the call centre in fuckin' India!) and told them I want out of my contract. Told them that Vodafone breached the contract by not providing me with the services I pay for and the services they offered me in my LEGALLY BINDING contract. They preceeded to tell me that cancellation would cost me *cough cough* $486!!! I told them they can stick that and that they already owe ME money for failed services. They passed me up the line to their technical support section who tried to convince me there was something wrong with my phone... which I already know is perfectly fine as other network sim cards work without a problem. They put me on hold and then hung up!

So I called again... and sat on hold for 40 minutes... again... and explained the situation... again... and they passed it up the line... again... and I was told they would call me back... and then hung up on... AGAIN.

To think I once worked for this company...
12 Jan 2011 01:35:20 PM: Get onto the telecommunications ombudsman about that or go to a vodaphone shop and talk to them about it... leave the indian call centres a wide berth...
12 Jan 2011 02:27:34 PM: We realise how distressing dealing with Vodafone actually is and also the lack of Customer Care (as your example eloquently shows!).

It would be really great if the comments and replies do not refer to the overseas call centre in a mildly derogatory way.

By doing so it opens the door for an accusation of a racism bunfight which is not really productive at all.

Thanks and have a great day, oh and check out the How To Complain tab and take your matter to the TIO, I think you have a very valid case. Vodafail.com mod
