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

18914 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is unbeleivably incompetent, epic fail at 25 Jul 2011 11:25:18 AM
I signed a contract in store changing my plan from $68 to a $45 infinite plan on the 05/04/2011. Shortly after this the vodafone store that I went to shut down and the information at the time was not properly processed. I have not been billed correctly for the period covering the 05/04/2011 to current.

I have tried resolving this a number of times (7 at last count) through the telephone complaint service. I also had to go into another store (04/06/2011) to get the new contract sent through via email (this should now be on file). I waited in store for over 45 minutes to get this processed.

Each time I ring vodafone I speak to a different person, and am often told to go back to the store to resolve the issue. The last call was the only one where I was given a reference number.

I am still being over charged, when I call the 1555 number all I get is someone telling me to pay an incorrect overdue amount, no one has responded to my email (5 working days now). I've signed a contract with this company, how can they just keep ignoring me like this?
25 Jul 2011 03:01:27 PM: I received a prompt reply from TIO, really relieved to know there is a way out of this straight forward issue that doesn't involve having to explain myself AGAIN to Voda 1555 staff.
