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

20408 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is phone barring fail at 23 Dec 2011 08:40:10 AM
Yesterday my phone got barred but I had no idea why. I went to a Vodafone shop and they looked up my account on there computer. All invoices on my account have been paid but the computer said that I had something overdue. When they went to the collection link it said I owed them $127.44 but it didn't come up what it was about. The guy at the vodafone shop said "That doesn't make sense". He called up the Vodafone customer care number. The customer care said that they can't find any evidence of the $127.44 and they I should ignore it. The guy at the Vodafone shop got angry with customer care and said the phone has been barred. After the Vodafone guy argued with them they said that the phone should be unbarred in 20 mins then hang up. After an hour it was still barred. This time I called up Customer Care again and said that the phone still didn't work. I was continuously told that there is no evidence of the $127.44 and that the phone should be working now. I said that the phone still isn't working. I'm lucky I have a backup mobile phone with Telstra and I used that for the rest of the day. I turned my phone on today and it is still barred. If it's still barred by this afternoon I am going to go to the TIO. This is just ridiculous.
23 Dec 2011 08:54:45 AM: Just an update. My phone is working again. I just hope it doesn't get barred again.
