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

19281 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is Ugrade becomes downgrade at 27 Aug 2011 03:09:06 PM
Live in Wollongong, have a Blackberry on a month to month basis with Vodafail, everything working well(at least I had 3G functionality intermittently) until last Wednesday when all services dropped out without explanation. Yesterday I received a text message from Vodafone to let me know that a network upgrade was being made text was two days late and arrived after the upgrade was made.

Still having no service after the alleged network upgrade was done, I contacted customer service and after two hours of speaking with a very polite Indian gentleman, and going through the motions of trying to convince me that my Blackberry was faulty (its not I've been through this before with them) he went on to inform me that after checking the signal coverage of my area, it appears that the upgrades to the network have resulted in DOWNGRADE of services available in my area???? WTF?

After five call dropouts during our conversation, the final suggestion was for me to find a neighbour and use their phone should any emergency arise, as Vodafone could not guarantee an uninterupted service from this point onwards.

Thank you Vodafone your alleged $1bn upgrades in your network have resulted in even less coverage in the 3rd largest city in the most populous state in the Country.

The reception your having now (no reception) is what i get 24/7 here in Shellharbour. I rang vodafone to complain 3 weeks ago about reception, they were meant to call me back within 5days and nothing. Ive been too busy with uni to follow up on the complaint, and when the man was giving me the complaint number he hung up on me. So now when i call they will say, "you never rang before, its not on the system" etc ... back to square 1
