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

My issues are

1) Poor reception in the 4000, 4078, 4069 and 4121 postcode which is where my brokers do 90% of their business
2) Customers tell us they cannot reach our numbers which always goes to messagebank
3) we get an average of 13 call fails each day when trying to call out
4) The Vodaphone Blackberry regularly turns itself off when in the adjoining suburb of Richlands and then re-initialises - sometimes 2 or 3 times in succession
5) No 3g coverage at most times. City - hopeless, Kenmore - very little 3g and tarragindi at my home absolutely hopeless. Even have no 3g in the cbd and fortitude valley most of the time.
6) Had clients tell us that they've been trying to call on numerous occasions. Phone can be sitting on our desk, or in our pocket and it does not ring
7) our loan updates are received via SMS and these have been received 1 day later which is unacceptable in our business when the settlement of a house is involved
8) Data speeds have been terrible and as we are cionstantly on lender sites for loan uopdates this is unacceptable

Given my brokers are self employed and rely heavily on their mobiles this is now seriously affecting my business.
