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

19543 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is OMG Don't Start at 29 Sep 2011 12:57:50 PM
I had a default added on my Credit history from vodafone 3 years ago. I ended my contract with Vodafone and went prepaid so now have been a vodafone customer for around 7 years. However, when I ended my contract I paid over $1200 to finalise it and was told it was all finished. a couple months later i recieve this bill for over $500 dollars. So I rang vodafone asking why i was billed and had this indian rep that i couldn't understand they said it was the exit fee so i said no i finalised this contract ages ago i shouldn't be billed this extra amount and demanded to speak to a supervisor. Then was put on hold for ridiculous amounts of time or put through to another person i couldn't understand. I rang so many times with the exact same outcome then was sent a letter informing me I had been defaulted! i was younger then and had never (and have never since) been defaulted so i stupidly paid the amount immediately. i have only now become aware of my rights (which are i should not have been defaulted if i was disputing the bill) or the TIO. So I rang Voda and informed them on this but they say they don't have any records of me disputing the amount! which made me so angry because it was a huge headache for me at the time! i lodged an enquiry with the TIO and they say my complaint is ligit but they can't help because it was over 2 years ago. i need to contact the Resolutions team... or go to fair trading! Resolutions team never answer the phone... so fair trading it is! if anyone else knows how i can have it removed let me know!
