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

19817 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is EPIC FAIL at 27 Oct 2011 06:42:15 PM
I ask to go on a higher cap and they tell me it should go through in 2 days. After 2 days I start increasing my downloads to that of the new cap and then get suspended for going over cap. I call up and they havent upgraded my cap. They tell me I have to pay part of the bill or no reconnection. They tell me the will put in a dispute and give me my money back but after they reconnect me they direct debit the rest out of my account. Over $500 all up. Three months later still no money. I keep calling and they keep telling me the money should only be a few more days so I ring the TIO. Nice person calls me and tells me sorry about the others people at the call centre we will give you your money plus "Good Will" bonus (so no more trouble with Ombudsman). Then Vodafone calls me back and says investigation into your problem so money will take longer. Nice person I spoke to no longer works there and new person is not as nice.

Three months and no money still

28 Oct 2011 08:16:26 AM: Exactly what they did to me! Except they changed my bpay ref number after the first bill (which I had set up an automatic payment on), re-populated my VF account with 9 year old data from and old '3' account i had, and sent all correspondance to the wrong address and email.. no-one even bothered calling, just d/c me and threatened me with bad credit for non payment for 4 months. After all this I had to pay the amount owing again, am chasing up the missing bpay payments ($280) with my bank (which didnt bounce) + the late payment fees for each month.
