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

18546 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is Tower updates only for iphones at 28 Jun 2011 07:21:00 AM
Well it looks like not many of us are going to benefit from vodacraps 850mhz service. They claim it will make things better for us all, so wrong. I live in Robina on the Gold Coast. Vodabull have switched on Robina 850, and Clear Island 850, as well as the upgrade to robina town center tower. You would think i would be happy to have so many towers for my phone to benefit from the improvement. WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!!. To benefit from these tower upgrades you would need a iphone or a phone that has 3G 850, 1900, 2100, now if you have Android phone like i have your phone will only get 850mhz only on 2G, so yes you have cell improvement but slow as data as your android will only use edge or gprs. When i switch my phone to 3G you get nothing to one bar reception. So if your phone specs dont state 3G 850 then nothing will change from vodatwits 850 upgrade. Sure vodadud will tell you it will free up 3G 2100 so you can benefit, but thats fine if your next to a 3G 2100 tower. So why would vodafone push android phones on to the market knowing that most, if not all androids dont have 3G 850 only 2g 850. So yes you do get great reception from the 850 upgrade but only slow data from edge an gprs. GO FIGURE.
