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

Where do I start?
There are 2 significant Vodafails I have experienced in the last 5 years. Not impressed:

1. I have had my Vodafone mobile number since I joined the service back in 1997. It is my only number I use for business purposes as I am self employed. However between 5 and 7 years ago, a number of clients and friends commented that they had tried to call me but been put through to a guys phone instead. It was confirmed when on one of these occasions my friend asked him where I was, and he replied "Oh, I've been getting calls for this girl for at least 5 years". As soon as my friend actually managed to get hold of me and tell me, I rang Vodafone to confront them about why another customer had MY number and did they realise I had probably lost business because of it!
Well the charming girl advised me that she would disconnect me!!! In the end I don't know what happened to the 'other guy', but what they did was to disconnect my service for a few hours and then reconnect it (after I had to call them to do it). I was never given an apology once. All this whilst on a $149 business plan per month. DISGUSTING.

2. My husband and I purchased the wireless internet because it was such a good deal. Shame it had zero reception. It would take up to 6 hours to load a single internet page, like hotmail login. The poor guy I spoke to was so sheepish when he admitted that Vodafail had failed to actually supply enough infrastrusture to support the demand. We took it back and got our refund.

I am still with Vodafone due to the call costs, however my husband and I will shortly be changing to Optus so we can save money on a package deal with our home and internet.
