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

14948 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is frustrating at 30 Jan 2011 09:27:41 AM
I had been with Vodafone prepaid in the past for years with no issues, i left for about 6 months then came back to a plan in late december, the issues since then have been never ending, reception for 1, i work in brisbane city, about 50% of the time i get vodafone reception, the rest i roam onto telstra, sometimes i just get no reception at all in the city, i live only 8km from brisbane city and often at home i get no reception at all, or its again under roaming, the issue being, when you roam, the charges are 90cents per minute out of my cap, not free vodafone to vodafone like it should be! this is why i went back to vodafone, so that my partner and i stopped getting big bills!

Next, I cant get my account balance through website, the vodafone access point, , the 1512 number, the only way was calling vodafone and waiting an hour, and as of yesterday they couldn't tell me what cap credit i had left and how much data i had either, first bill i knew would have 2 x monthly charges, but where i signed up for half price, they input it as $10 per month off, i now apparently have a recurring credit to make up the difference but my first bill was still not half price x 2 months! i am also incredibly underwhelmed at the speed of internet access vodafone have at the moment, i usually just wait till i get home as its less painful!

Did you get the reps name, ID and call reference number? Always wise to as there have been reports of calls not apparently being recorded. The reps will give them to you but you normally have to ask!

Vodafail.com needs your waiting times to illustrate the unacceptable and excessive waiting times experienced from Customer Care.

Please use the On Hold Again? located at the top of the page to record your experience.

If you have tried to contact Customer Care without success or not to your satisfaction the next step is to contact the TIO.

The details may be found on the tab How To Complain located at the top of the page.

Good luck and let us know how you get on!!!
