26 Mar 2012 - Update Highest Rated Pain Stories Highest Rated Gain Stories Vodafail Local Facebook Page
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

I have been going through this site for the last 1 and a half years. I can totally empathize with the sentiments that most of you share. Quite a lot of it is against the customer care overseas. This is a part of cutting costs which companies world wide are doing, specially where it requires providing a service.
I can only say this:-
Whenever you are dealing with 3 or vodafone or any other mobile service provoders, just before you end the conversation, ensure you have summarised every thing. After that, ask the rep to send you the copy of all communication (Via email or post) and ensure they give you a reference number. That way you can always have something in writing. Plus this is a right that the TIO has provided to the customer.
If anyone says that they dont have that facility, tell them they are wrong and they can look up in the TIO website.
If they say they dont have access to internet, tell them its a lie because everyone out there has been provided the access to some basic sites like www.tio.com.au, www.vodafone.com.au, www.three.com.au
