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

20597 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is customer service fail at 13 Jan 2012 06:01:13 PM
Before I went on holidays over seas for a month I organised to have direct debit on my next bill so I didn't have to do it on my holiday and could just relax. Well, I get back home after my holiday to find my phone cut off and $30 in overdue fees. When I called them they said they got rid of the fees and apologised and would take it out now. So I thought all was fine, then I look at my account in two days and they tried to take out the bill plus the late fees and I didn't have enough so was charged another dishonour fee!!! Again I called and they apologised AGAIN and said they would fix it AGAIN. I look at my account, all seems to be fine.

... Three MONTHS LATER I get a letter in the mail saying I owed the same amount that had been owing when I got back from my holiday. Utterly confused I looked at my account and they had put the money back in???? So I called again (4 times) and on the final call I explained everything and luckily got someone who actually spoke english and took out all the fees added on over the time so it was down to the raw bill amount that should have been paid and out of my hair three months ago then explained how I could pay it myself to make sure it was all done properly.

one day when I have lots of money I am buying my way out of this contract... I haven't had one month where I haven't needed to call with an issue.
They are hopeless.
