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

10079 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is at 3 Jan 2011 10:54:58 AM
I was with Vodaphone for some time on both pre-paid and plan. In 2008 in the month of March I was on vacation in the Philippines. Before I left I organised my Vodaphone to be put on roaming by a Vodaphone representative, She was certain that and assured me my phone was now on roaming. So I embarked on my five week vacation to the Philippines. When I arrived I noticed my phone was not on roaming and I could not use it. Five days into my holiday I had an accident at a waterfall in which I sustained a badly fractured right ulnar and radius. These injuries required me to undergo surgery and being hospitalised for three days. Because my phone was not on roaming I could not contact my insurance company and the phone system in the hospital could not make phone calls outside there region. Because I was not able to contact my insurance company I had to pay in full for my surgery and hospital fees. This left me with no money for the rest of my holiday. It was lucky my injuries were not more serious because I could not even contact my family in Australia. You can not imagine how frustrating this was not to be able to contact your loved ones when you are about to go into surgery. When I returned to Australia I informed Vodaphone of what had happened and they were apologetic however refused to compensate me in anyway. I asked them to investigate this and was not informed in any way about an outcome of an investigation. I will never use Vodaphone again and I will always share my experience with people who are thinking of attaining a plan for a mobile phone.
