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

19510 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is Crazy Fail at 22 Sep 2011 11:42:41 PM
I'm wondering if we can discuss Crazy John's here. Crazy John's own website states it is part of the VHA group. VHA is Vodafone Hutchison Australia which operates Vodafone, 3 and Crazy John's. Many people like me are signing up with Crazy John's not really aware that Vodafone, 3 and Crazy John's are the one company. I'm stuck with a two year plan with Crazy John's not to mention a bill for over $1000 for 3.1 Gigabytes of data that at this stage appears to be due to a faulty phone handset as we really just use the phone for a bit of facebook and a bit of news on the web. Their customer service in cases like this is disgraceful and unethical. They won't give me anything in writing to confirm what our method of bill payment is. I've just submitted an application to the telephone ombudsman. We will also investigate making a Freedom of Information request because we are worried they still have my wife's banking account details even though we have cancelled the direct debit payment. I'll write more when I find out we our allowed to discuss Crazy John's on this website. I suspect as the 'Vodafone' brand name losses trust with people the company will merely continue to trade strongly under the 'Crazy John's' brand name.
