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

20086 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is Very fail at 23 Nov 2011 02:15:13 PM
My mum was previously with 3 and went to allphones to renew her contract before it expired, and they convinced her to go with vodafone without checking area coverage. She got home to discover she had NO phone reception at home, and rang Vodafone this morning to cancel. After screwing around with settings for 10 minutes, waiting on hold for 5 more minutes, being hung up on and then them calling back at the same time I tried calling them again, I finally got put on to the same person I talked to previously and she put me on hold again and then put me through to the cancellation department. Cancelling the contract took about 10 minutes, then he said it would be easy to get the number on another carrier just go to a store and sign up. We mentioned we wanted to go back to 3 (otherwise known as a reverse migration) and he said just go to the store. I mentioned this at least three times and always got the same response. When I finally got to a 3/vodafone store they checked the call notes and apparently it was noted that they had offered to do a reverse migration and I had DECLINED, which was a lie. The reverse migration is now going to take 48 hours to complete, not including the three hours in total I wasted this morning driving to various places and talking on the phone and being kept on hold.
