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

Phone keeps dropping out,unable to send or receive text messages, unable to access internet, continually slow data transfer.

I have been a vodafone customer for 3 years. Around 2 months ago I started to experience continual problems with my and my partners phone, and our internet access whilst in our home which is close to Brisbane CBD. In November 2010 I complained to vodafone after a 24 hour period were we had no internet or phone coverage at all. After an hour on the phone I was told someone would call me back, which they did a couple of days later leaving a voice message that I could not understand. The problems have continued since that time and again I called vodafone to complain. After speaking with a completely useless phone operator who said the technicians had confirmed there were no problems with coverage in my area so there was nothing they could do I responded by saying there was something I could do, which was join the class action against them and complain to the ombudsmann. I also said I wanted to cancel my contract (at no cost to me). I was then told that a supervisor would call me back to discuss cancelling my contract. Suprisingly someone did call me back, and after repeating the same information and being asked the same useless questions such as are you sure it is not your handset (given it happens to 2 phones and the internet at the same time) was informed.......Yes there was a problem and it started 3 months ago when Vodafone took over 3. It had to do with the towers and they are attempting to fix this problem and hope that services will be working fine in around 2 months. They then offered to waive the monthly fees on both phones for the next 3 months ($150 per month) and if it was not fixed by the end of this period to call them back and discuss this further. For me this was a satisfactory outcome.
