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

19726 Someone from WA thinks vodafone is Like the Simpsons without Homer. at 20 Oct 2011 02:06:48 AM
I was originally with 3, which was fine for a while, but mother made me switch to Vodafone for some upgrade reasons. So I've been with Vodafail for about half a year now and my first incident occurred with the last bill that I need to pay soon.

I understood why I have the amount owing, but I was not happy with the way they were charging me, and how SLOW their service is. Basically, I posted on their 'Vodafone Community' about how I didn't like receiving a bill I was unaware of, considering I am a loyal customer and text to 1512 everyday just to make sure I'm on track with my usage. They never let me know that my exceeding amount was $78, instead it stayed on 0 the entire time up until the bill arrived. So I asked them if this was a way of milking money off customers? Telling you you're not exceeding and then charging you under the radar. I told them I would've been happy to pay that amount if they did their job or upgraded their service and notify me earlier about how much I was exceeding.

Now the point is, instead of replying to my post and helping me out...I receive a 'private' message saying my post was removed because I wasn't being nice and it didn't flow with the guidelines of the post forum. They also said I should 'treat them like how I want to be treated' - which then ended with a "Thanks for your help in keeping the community a friendly, productive environment for all members."

Really? I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure that majority of complaints don't end with a friendship bracelet. I wasn't a happy customer, and that was expected. I didn't swear, I wasn't being racist, I didn't do anything to offend anyone. Deleting my post instead of fixing the problem? Nice work, Vodafone! Now you're IGNORING customers. Hooray for poor customer service!
