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

12551 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is a joke. not haha funny. at 13 Jan 2011 10:54:47 PM
I naively signed onto a contract with vodafone about 20 months ago, and have regretted it ever since. I have had a few major issues with them regarding insurance, appalling coverage when i live so close to the CBD of the 3rd largest city in Australia, and the fact that their customer service is a joke. like, not just bad, it is actually useless.
within the past 12 months I started a new job working at a major phone dealership, that deals with Vodafone, telstra, Optus and 3. I will not name the company or location, but one of the requirements is that we don't put down other carriers if there is no need. if we do a coverage checker and it looks good, and the plan suits the customer, we do it, and can't advise against it. but in recent months i have been steering customers well clear of vodafone and 3. i just explain my own experience as a vodafone customer, and then show my own phone's current signal compared to a store phone on telstra, and we both have a laugh at how bad it is.
after having no service for almost 2 days now during the floods, a time when we also had no electricity meaning no modem for the internet (NOT vodafone thank god), i was unable to contact friends and family, get help, nothing. vodafone, that is just not good enough. I am now on a one person mission to sway customers away from a useless network. YOUR TURN, VODAFONE!!!
13 Jan 2011 10:56:34 PM: Mate.
13 Jan 2011 11:13:13 PM: So what is your modem plugged into?

Why can't you make calls from that phone line?
14 Jan 2011 05:12:24 AM: It's cute that you expected Vodafone to be your hero and save you from lack of contact due to electricity outage hell. You should know that emergency services will still work. So what happened to grabbing an Optus or Telstra SIM even? If you're that ignorant.
14 Jan 2011 08:44:15 AM: hes in floods, i doubt the optus and telstra shops were open to get a new sim. ur the idiot. Vodafpne FAILED every one of its customers in brisbane, i live 40 minutes outside the city and luckily wasnt in the floods but my service was gone and i had no way of contacting friends and family in the area, i had to rely on my telstra internet (which worked perfect) to try and find out on facebook if they were alright.
not everyone has home phones.
