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,
Share Your Pain

1954 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is epic customer service fail at 27 Dec 2010 11:15:15 AM
As a loyal and high-paying customer of twelve years with Vodafone I found the 'service' I received over the past two years to get increasingly worse. I moved to a Central QLD mining town for work and asked Vodafone to freeze my cap payments as there was no Vodafone range, so I couldn't use my phone at all. I got a Telstra pre-paid so I could be contactable whilst out of Voda range. I was told 'too bad' and was charged my monthly cap even though I couldn't use it. When I got back to the city I had VF customer service people calling up twice a week for two months to see if everything was ok, as they could clearly see a big-spender had stopped generating charges at all for four months. I told them I shouldn't have to pay for a service I can't use and they agreed to refund me the money charged. However they didn't and I then received abusive (that's right, abusive) calls from Indians demanding the payment I owed them. It then went a to a debt collector who called asking for my details 'on behalf of Vodafone'. Customer service fail - no rewards for loyalty and they broke my privacy. This is the 'nutshell' version of a very long-wonded and boring story. The moral is, I have switched to Telstra. I have range everywhere I go and so far, no abusive calls or communication breakdowns!
