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

19924 Someone from NSW thinks vodafone is unable to activate a SIM card at 8 Nov 2011 05:31:32 PM
I was on the verge of leaving the Vodafail network, when my 24 month contract finally expired. However I was lured back to the dark side by one of their "retention" officers who desperately offered a "loyalty" bonus to stay with the network in return for an upgraded phone and plan. Reluctantly, I accepted, as the task of switching networks, with all its hassle was too much to bear.
So after paying the $10 delivery fee, I waited and waited for my new iPhone to arrive. .. and 14 days later it finally did! Granted, they are a bit overwhelmed with iphone 4S issues at the moment...
Next step activating my SIM- I activated it Sunday, and was warned it would take 24 hours.
I called the helpdesk on Monday night, and was told it would be activated by midnight.
I called again Tuesday morning to be told I needed to reactivate it again - by this time I had bought a hard case and the Sim was not accessable! After struggling to remove the hardcase of my new phone, I reactivated the SIM for a SECOND time, and wait once again for Vodafail to provide service...
