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

Congratulations for getting the Samsung Galaxie 2 at 5$ only per month. Well Done.

However I have done better today.

I have 5 accounts with Three but made the mistake to migrate to Vodafone last month. For the past 5 weeks I have nothing but abuses and profanities against the Vodafone customers services and counter service staff, some of whom cried. I also threatened to walk off my contract without paying(I can lose my credit card and have new numbers reissued) and kicked up so much fuss with their priority service that they repeatedly called me to stop me from migrating back to Telstra.

I am saying this here so that you guys should repeat the same abuses to their Vodafone staff, I have used up to 5 phones to choke up their customer service line every time they put me on hold for more than 15 min. Make they pay dearly for their sloppy services and shonky connections. Guess what...they rewarded me by first waiving two of my 5 account of all minimum charges for 1 month, from last week. I abused them again today, they lifted the waiving to all 5 accounts for the next 6 months, saving me like $1,300.00 in total.

Who says that abusive and discourteous bheaviours does not pay ?

If you wish send me your response so that I can copy to you all the voice recording of the abuses and profanities I used, and the rewards Vodafone conceded to me following my beliggerence. Payback time for these corporate bulies.

10 Nov 2011 09:00:09 AM: personally I am horrified and disgusted at your behaviour.And the fact that you are proud of it only further demonstrates your lack of maturity. It because of people like you, who tie up several phone lines at one time, that the rest of us are unable to get through to them for our own reasons. And making people cry from your verbal abuse?? You really should be ashamed of yourself.

4 Dec 2011 10:42:02 AM: I work as a supervisor in customer service for a bank, people who behave in the way you described I simply hang up on and put appropriate notes on their account, to many comments and we simply shut your account with no further warning irrespective of the account balance.
