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

20870 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is FAIL - No outbound SMS 23 hours now and counting... at 15 Feb 2012 11:59:49 AM
FAIL - No outbound SMS 23 hours now and counting... Four (4) phone calls to Vodafone, approximately three (3) hours on the phone, still no outbound SMS. Can receive calls, and SMSes, but not send. Samsung Galaxy SII, tried updating SMSC using *#*#4636#*#*, Phone Information, and Vodafone SMS Centre +61415011501, but clicking Update gives "update error". Received Browser and MMS settings, and still not working. Tried VF sim in another handset with SMSC set the same, still no joy. Put SIM back, turned phone off, removed SIM, back on, tried disabling packet data, re-enabling, then escalation they tell it me it will take five (5) days. Rubbish. I'm calling the TIO next.
