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

Coverage in Darwin is rubbish. Dropped calls still happening, seemed worse with my HTC for some reason even though it indicated full reception.
What's worse is I had my phone break and the staff at the Voda shop is Cas are in a league of their own with regards to ignorance of their own procedures, politeness, professionality, you know, basic service standards. When I went to get my phone serviced by warranty, they couldn't look up my phone details where I got it from, so I went home and got my receipt. Then, the IMEI was apparently invalid....jesus it took so long.....
The second time the girl had NO IDEA what she was doing and then actually left the store to talk to someone. I was in there for >45 minutes just to get my phone serviced, waiting around while some bloke slowly guided her through the process she hadn't been trained in and couldn't figure out.
Part of the problem, I am sure, is that every time I go in there, I am astounded at the length of time it takes them to do anything on their computer system. Also, I am annoyed that they can't do all that much without ringing home first.
How can I get them to release me? The shop alone is bad enough, and then with the dropped calls....I used to like Voda, but recent experience has made me a hater.
