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

20621 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is Blatent liers and incompetent at 17 Jan 2012 11:45:06 AM
Went in to the local Vodafone store and asked about upgrading my mobile broadband download limit. After being offered an attractive deal to migrate my provider from 3 to Vodafone and assured that I had a 3 day cooling-off period, I walked out with with a brand new K3771 USB modem.
I waited 24 hours for the number to be ported and then plugged it in to my computer, expecting it to load the software and set itself up automatically, as my previous 3 modem did. No such luck.
After 10 hours with various members of tech support, I was told that the version 10.2 software that comes with the K3771 modem is NOT Windows 7 compatible and I should download a prior version. An 88Mb file eventually came down at dial-up speeds and I installed the previous version as instructed. The new software failed to even run.
At this point I asked to exercise my 'cooling-off' option and go back to 3 whereupon I was told by the Retentions people that "There *is* no cooling off period".
So now I've been lied to, sold a product that Vodafone *know* doesn't work and am still being told by their Retention gremlins that "they *might* consider letting me out of my contract if they decide that they can't provide me with a service".
I have a feeing they plan to send me an email asking me to reply if that's what I want.
