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

968 Someone from TAS thinks vodafone is my new favourite carrier at 19 Dec 2010 08:48:29 AM
Guys, the other phoen companies aren't exactly perfect. Telstra can't even cancel my service without getting it wrong so I'vw swithced to Vodafone!

My broadband cable contract expires tomorrow so I called Telstra 4 weeks ago to let them know that I would not be extending. "You'll have to call back in 4 weeks as we can only cancel services immediately" was their response. I called back today, waited on hold for a while (as usual) then got someone who was unable to handle the call so I was put on hold again (as usual) and then got disconnected (as usual).

During my second call I had to explain it all again, give various forms of ID again, and eventually they found my account. After about 10 mins more of hold music I was told that they would now disconnect my broadband but as I was disconnecting a day before my contract expires that there would be an early cancellation fee but it would only be "a couple of dollars". They can chase me for that!

10 minutes later I assume that my broadband had been disconnected because my Foxtel cable TV service also disappeared. Perhaps they use scissors to disconnect you.

Phone call number three! call, on hold, explain, on hold, explain, on hold, transferred, they cant find my account despite me quoting all of the account numbers on the "One Bill", on hold, more forms of ID, on hold, Foxtel service finally resumes, still on hold, then I hang up - why should I be courteous!.
What a friggin joke!.
