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,
Share Your Pain

8713 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is Multiple fails at 29 Dec 2010 07:26:50 PM
In the year I was with Vodafone, as well as dropped calls lack of reception in Sydney CBD and lower North shore, as well as delayed voicemails, I was also cut off twice for spending too much. Even though I have never missed a payment (at Vodafone or at my previous provider) I started receiving threatening texts and automated messages that I had spent too much. When I called and explained I was OS for work (even though I had alerted them b4 I left) I was told this didn't matter and I had to pay immediately or be cut off. I explained that I had jus paid the last month's bill so surely I had another month before this new amount was due. They said it had to be paid immediately. I succumbed (as i could not lose my mobile while OS on my business trip) and asked them to email me the invoice asi would pay it immediately. They then told me that billing was autmated so they could not send me the invoice, I would need to wait to 2 weeks. I told them thati thought this was extortion - you can't just ring and demand payment - sending an invoice was standard business practice. I told them I wouldn't pay unti the sent me the invoice. So they hung up on me and cut me off. This happened on Two separate occasions. I rang and Emailed a number of times - and was relatedly told this was standard practice, I never ever received an apology. When my contact expired I tried leave immediately and got told romps a $50 unlock fee even though I had just spent a year paying off the phone. At that stage I just had to leave. Beware the fancy advertising - this company is a joke.
