26 Mar 2012 - Update Highest Rated Pain Stories Highest Rated Gain Stories Vodafail Local Facebook Page
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

11206 Someone from Somewhere else thinks vodafone is epic at 8 Jan 2011 12:39:06 PM
first of all its great someone has done this - i always thought it was the phone i was buying but - vodafone is at fault when every time i make a phone call it keeps saying - call fail...call fail.. call fail.... i counted at one time there 21 times i tried calling out and resulting in... call fail.
It shows reception there! just no go. the it decides to completely wipe reception. this is not the phone, for a telstra sim works fine.
If vodafone wants to ADVANCE - cover the rural areas too!
14 Jan 2011 05:07:52 PM: Yeah we need love beyond the granite curtain in the eastern states!
20 Jan 2011 12:35:53 PM: @14 Jan 2011 07:07:52 PM: That post looks remarkably similar to one in Whirlpool by Voodoofone, who claims to be a store manager
20 Jan 2011 12:37:19 PM: That's www.whirlpool.net.au - find almost any recent Vodafone forum and he'll be there.
23 Jan 2011 06:22:11 PM: Probably has heaps of rational things to say.
23 Jan 2011 06:41:37 PM: He hasn't so far, as a matter of fact all he does is dribble on and makes voadafone look even worse than they already are (if that is even possible).
23 Jan 2011 06:44:12 PM: lol ive seen that post on whirlpool and i think that voodoofone guy is the most rational bloke on there.great post by vodoofoone.i think other whirlpool members should take note of ths guy
23 Jan 2011 06:51:32 PM: Go check his posts on Whirlpool. Entertaining and thought provoking!
23 Jan 2011 07:05:43 PM: rofl, nothing thought provoking. He is just trolling there as you are here...Maybe one in the same person. Food for thought ;)
23 Jan 2011 07:06:03 PM: omg why isnt this guy the prime minister.
23 Jan 2011 07:07:33 PM: maybe its you?.wait im vodoofone...no wait the post at 2:37 is voodoofone.he's everywhere!!!!!
24 Jan 2011 12:54:07 AM: Hey, you troll, this is my trollitory,and I LOVE voodoofone and he can dribble his inane stupidities anywhere he likes in the name of Vodafone.
24 Jan 2011 01:31:25 AM: Not me-the image of a combination of Ricky Gervais in The Office, and a mix of Red Dwarf's Rimmer and that f)(kwit Brittas -aaaaargh AND VODAFONE as well - I've been twitching uncontrollably since I read it .
24 Jan 2011 01:45:07 AM: I am not a troll. I really hate Vodafone for many varied reasons. I think most of that stuff up there is by loyal Vodafone customers. I loved giving Voodoofone more than enough rope for him to.............. string up between two cans and have functioning Vodafone communication?
24 Jan 2011 01:59:45 AM: He's got a touch of creepy little John Howard, too. He tries "wedge "psychology- one time it's about "the cockies", another time it's "a uni student", another time something implying effete journalists (I think- sometimes he doesn't even pretend to make sense).
The personification of uselessness and arrogance- the face of Vodafone
24 Jan 2011 06:45:34 PM: Oh boy Lou lou lou loser.
24 Jan 2011 06:51:19 PM: Hi David, hows it hanging?
24 Jan 2011 10:37:28 PM: 14 Jan 2011 07:07:52 PM: Knew I'd seen somethng like it before

You get the Ricky Gervais/ John Howard similarity? Apart from the dribbling?
25 Jan 2011 06:45:53 PM: Of course you're a troll wally. The worst negative idiotic kind more obsessed with stupid little intrigues that don't even exist or matter to anyone except in your own twisted little mind.
25 Jan 2011 07:04:50 PM: The Voda Staff that come to a site that is about 'sharing your pain about Vodafone' and add nothing to the conversation are the Trolls. It is sad really.
26 Jan 2011 04:05:37 PM: @25 Jan 2011 08:45:53 PM: Thank YOU for your positive thoughts and helpful comments.
26 Jan 2011 06:29:04 PM: @26 Jan 2011 06:05:37 PM: Yeah @25 Jan 2011 08:45:53 PM was a rough post but got the point across. I wrote the reply @14 Jan 2011 07:07:52 PM and it was a show of solidarity. Nothing negative about it. Then there was someone trying to out someone on some other site like who in their right mind cares? Seriously.
27 Jan 2011 12:13:27 AM: The only thing that really interests me, is whether the Vodafone staff posting here are doing it as Vodafone "agents" or is it their own brilliant idea?
