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

5122 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is at 27 Dec 2010 08:33:17 PM
I have spent HOURS on the phone to Vodafone in the last 2 months about the amount of call dropouts and poor coverage with my iphone. Last Saturday, a fellow from Vodafone phoned me and said the problem is a network issue and Vodafone will let me out of the contract if that's what I want. I told him that's what I want. He said I had to phone the store where I bought the phone to organise the disconnection including the return of the iphone handset. I phoned the store and they said only Vodafone deal with this issue and I have to phone Vodafone back. Since then, I have spent HOURS on the phone to Vodafone, on hold yet again. The last I heard was last Monday when Vodafone said they would phone me back in 24 to 72 hours to arrange for my disconnection. That call didn't arrive until today. The phone rang twice. I answered it and as soon as I did, the phone dropped out. What a surprise... not. Then I got an SMS from Vodafone saying they have tried to call me and I didn't answer my phone so phone on 1555 for further queries about my complaint. I phoned 1555 and was on hold for 20 minutes. I hung up. I then phoned their 1300 number and was on hold for another 25 minutes. I hung up.

HOW PATHETIC VODAFONE. NOT ONLY IS THEIR NETWORK TOTAL CRAP... BUT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TOTALLY, TOTALLY NON-EXISTANT. I am totally, totally sick of Vadafone. And I am totally sick of being on hold to them trying to get my contract cancelled.
