26 Mar 2012 - Update Highest Rated Pain Stories Highest Rated Gain Stories Vodafail Local Facebook Page
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

First of all I have ordered a black iPhone 4S, and they shipped me with a white one. Wasted half a day trying to sort thing out(80% on hold waiting, with 90% drop offs after waiting for 30 mins+!).

Then they cannot activate my sim, after 5 -6 fail transfer calls to their Activation department (which all dropped off after waiting more than 20 mins!), its finally activated. BUT THEN.... they activated on the wrong account and I have to drive to the local store, get someone to call them up (because by this stage I could not possible go through their Indian customer service any longer).

NOW after everything is finally sorted (took 2 days), there is NO RECEPTION! I live in Lidcombe, and on my Telstra iPad it shows FULL bar, but crappy vodafail only has 1 or even no bar. I even try to call my phone, and 40% of the time it wouldn't even get through and went straight to voicemail.

So regret of taking on vodafail because its 20 bucks cheaper than Telstra. For those thinking about signing up with vodafail... DO NOT DO IT! AS IT CAUSES MORE GRIEF THAN IT SHOULD. I would rather pay a slightly more premium price and get PERFECT reception and coverage.
