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

19568 Someone from Somewhere else thinks vodafone is They're highway robbers! at 3 Oct 2011 09:36:00 PM
I am British, living in Spain and had been a loay customer of Vodafone for over 12 years. In 2009, before I went to spend 3 weeks in Malta, I phoned their Customer Service Dept to enquire about the cost of raoming for use of the internet, e-mails etc, for the time in Malta. The staff were poorly trained and couldn't answer my enquiry - I had to call them 3 times and ask for a supervisor before they eventually informed me that the cost would be increased form the usual 12 Euros per month package cost, to 60 Euros per month or part. Off I went to Malta from the 29th Oct returning on the 19th Nov. I expected to be charged for 2 months @ 60 Euros each, therefor 120 Euros. When my next bill arrived, they had charged me 647 Euros, yes that's 547 Euros for just the e-mails / internet - the calls were extra. I phoned several times to complain and was told they would look into the matter...but instead, I received a further bill for another 352 Euros!! Its about time some kind of regulation was brought in for mobile phone companies - they think they are a law unto themselves! Clearly they coudn't care less about their image and reputation. I have snce moved my contract to Orange who seem to be a much more efficiently run company. Terry (PERSONAL DETAILS REMOVE) 3rd October 2011
