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

19264 Someone from TAS thinks vodafone is increasingly fail at 25 Aug 2011 02:39:40 PM
I was a prepaid customer, had okayish coverage at home and at work. Coverage maps and word-of-mouth indicated that vodafone coverage in these places was fine, so I put it down to my old handset having a lame antenna. Signed up on a contract to get a nice new phone, thinking from experience that my coverage would remain okay. however found that I now have NO coverage at home (let alone 3G) and only intermittent at work. Brought this up and got some reduction in my monthly fees as compensation but am still stuck on a contract with a phone that I can't use to make or receive calls or texts. After an unrelated (but still incredibly annoying) issue I have learned not to bother trying to call the call centre. I got through eventually but the line quality was so bad it was very hard to communicate the problem which was then dismissed by the worker as impossible (was later resolved in-store by a manager after 90min of troubleshooting on his part)
