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

19344 Someone from WA thinks vodafone is Billing at 2 Sep 2011 02:26:16 PM
This is my firs post here however I should have made a move earlier!
Last December I had finally had it with no reception and dropped calls every though I live 2kms from Perth CBD! I was paying $90 a month for a ridiclous plan with a terrible handset and not getting the service I was so loyally paying for.
I called Vodafone and asked them to have my area tested for reception and heard nothing for 5 days. I then called them back and was informed that they could not offer my reception in my area so I could now exit my contract (which has 12 months left) at no charge to me.
My boyfriend was with Vodafone as well and after a second area test and another weeks wait, they came to the same arrangement.
I posted our phones back to these idiots and and they allowed us to port both our numbers to Optus no problems at all.
SIX MONTHS LATER I receive a phone call from NRG GLOBAL SOLUTIONS asking me how I would like to pay my $1000 phone bill for early exit of my account! I cant even believe my ears. Just when I thought they were out of my life they are still trying to suck every dollar out of me. I call Vodafone and they tell me the account is closed and there is no payment owing. I tell this to NRG yet they insist I send them an email outling this so I do.
THREE MONTHS LATER I get a call from them again. I tell them to SPEAK TO VODAFONE. They said they will not and that I need to speak to them and then get a reference number for payment and give it to them.
This is still un resolved and dirving me absolutley insane! I cant believe what a joke this has become - all because I just wanted to get what I was PAYING for!!!!!!
I work in law and legal action seems to be a good option at this stage...
