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,
Share Your Pain

14804 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is Overcharged for 2.5 years due to misplaced contract at 28 Jan 2011 08:13:05 AM
Lack of response from Vodafone on a billing issue after calling and visiting their store numerous times. I received a text message from Vodafone that I owed $988. After calling their call centre I was told it was because I had exceeded my data usage and their solution was to block my ability to use the internet. My point to them was how can my bill go from approx $80 per month to $400 - $600 per month with no change in usage pattern, they said due to privacy restrictions they could not tell me what websites I visited which would have contributed to such a huge increase in data. I ended up going into a store who confirmed that the last contract they had on file was from 2006 and that had no data coverage at all. I explained that I did sign a contract in 2008 and was placed on a data plan. As they had no record of this contract, I brought a copy in for them the following day. It turns out they have been over charging me since September 2008, and in addition have been charging for my nominated "Vodafone friend" who I was meant to be getting free calls and text messages to.
