I transferred my business account from Telstra to Vodafone. Calls drop out and in some cases every second word cannot be heard. Was promised exactly the same coverage as Telstra, told no contracts. Guess what, coverage is substandard and not like Telstra and I have been charged over $1500 to move back to Telstra. I have lost business because of Vodafone. Save yourself the heartache!
No Service. Not receiving phone calls or texts.
I had been with vodafone for years and knew their coverage was bad but as I rarely used my phone it didn't bother me much. A few months ago I stopped getting any coverage at all. I was missing calls from work, missing shifts and could not send or receive texts. As I live in a city area I thought it might have been my phone, as it was a few years old so I purchased a new phone but still no coverage. Hubby and I would sit side by side at the kitchen table and could not call or text each other. I changed carriers and have had no issues since. Terrible coverage and the prepaid plans are expensive. $30 for 28 days of poor coverage (drops in and out)
Like a snail
with 0% customers service and net is slower than snail. Never satisfy with this vodafone data and also adsl. Had to choose different internet.
Don't wanna give even 1 star.
Bad. Very bery Bad. Extremely Bad. Signals dropping out all the time. Slowest of all the internet providers. I spoke with Vodafone team poor customer service. Well not their fault. If internet is bad there's nothing they can do about it. I am changing my provider. Don't get fooled by the stupid offers. They don't have good internet. Their offers means nothing.
Prepaid Activation impossible. Had to go to TIO.
Nothing works. Useless Customer service. Bought a $50 Vodafone Prepaid Starter Pack from Woolworths. Could not Activate online ("We have had an error Activating, please call us...") and the 100% INDIAN Call-Centre could not Activate it either. Had to go to Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman.
Difficult to transfer plan
I’ve been using my sim for 10 years now and have many things attached to it... bank account, work, government accounts. Now for some reasons my bday entered on sign up was wrong and now I can’t seem to make any amendments to my account. Surely there has to be some other way I can prove that this is my SIM card other than a bday. 10 years I’m stuck with this provider and can’t get out unless I change my number. It is extremely annoying.
Vodafone doesn't deserve a single star. Customers deserve better.
Called them in May 2020 to cancel the tablet plan after 24 months got over. Customer service person acknowledged and cancelled it. I am still getting billed through the direct debit in October 2020. Called them to check and they said the plan was never cancelled. There is no note at their end.
Long waiting times, took 20 min to connect each time and gets disconnected randomly. Called agian today and they transferred to their Cancellation team, and automated IVR says, "You have called us outside business hours. Talk soon." and call got disconnected.
There is no option to cancel online.
Spoiled by Wekeend so far. But calling ombudsman on Monday if they are not refunding.
Call them and email them many times and still not getting my prepaid active also they didn't even give a number waste $40 on prepaid i already a few emails and i call today and they hang up on me today im so annoyed so bad review and i want my money back now report you to the ACCC and now going dispute the transaction
Internet very slow. Frequent drop outs. Can't register for Vodafone.
What has happened to Vodafone? Internet works on and off. Previously worked well. Can't register for My Vodafone. SMS to get a password never arrives. What is happening? 30 words.
Disrespectful and Rude Customer Service
Overcharging customers and no reversal options. The network is unreliable and customer service is rude. They will only ask you for a review or rate the customer care experience if you had a positive outcome. That’s not an ethical business model.
Very poor network service , Need to improve Your network quality. I have very bad experience with vodafone.please provide quality service to your customer. Very very bad experience with vodafone thanks.
Always goes back to original price
In the area of Maylands very bad reception for Vodafone mobile and Vodafone wifi.
Another friend of mine has the same problem and he lives in the same area perth metro been like this for
Another problem that happen to me when using Vodafone sim that i did not like at all as when your contract is up with them normally 12 months it reverts back to the undiscounted price.
As i've used another mobile company and theirs stayed at the discounted price all the time i was with
them and did not revert back to the original price.
Vodafone is no.1 cheater in Australia. They are fraud.
Vodafone is no.1 cheater in Australia. I got prepaid SIM, I got 60GB data first, they told me that I could get 60GB(35GB+25GB bonus) every month if I setup my plan on auto recharge. Upon 2nd recharge they didn't acknowledged that offer instead gave me 45GB. Then I ordered for postpaid Sim, 100GB for $45 monthly plan, after accepting that order they only gave me 60GB for $50. Vodafone is fraud. Also speed is very slow, 4g is not 4g. When you call Vodafone , all support by Indian people. No manner
These guys have gotten worse in every way. U get what u pay for.
These idiots have gotten worse over the last year or so. When my hi speed data is finished i can't even Google. I was not like this a year ago.
When u ring them it goes straight to India. So your already angry then you have to repeat everything u say to someone from India that doesn't understand Aussie english.
I'm changing to Telstra. I will pay more for less stress.
Vodaphone has gone down hill.
Vodafone Australia - The worst telco to deal with
Vodafone is the worst service provider in Australia. They have partner stores who dont know a thing. A simple thing such as unlocking a prepaid device by paying a fee needs the customer to talk to a dozen people, with no resolution. Have been a postpaid customer 3 years ago, thought they were better....But now they are down the drain. After speaking to their customer support for 24 minutes, the response that I get is, I have to go back to another Vodafone store. Avoid Vodafone. Avoid Vodafone store in Seven Hills, completely useless
Customer service have no idea
Several weeks ago i chaged mobile phones my number stayed the same however i was unble to copy my email because i had forgotten the password. I set up a new email notfied vodafone by the myvodfone app and followed up with phone call to ensure that i did it right i was assured that it did.
I am receiving emails including my monthly bill at the old email address.
I phone customer service today to ask why. I got quicly frustrated by questions this soon turned to anger so i hung up.
I am now seriously considering going to another provider who is not attached to vodafone
Simply declined upon application of a plan. Have been a prepaid customer for years. Deciding to change providers to someone willing to give me a chance. Honestly pretty disappointed. My credit history isn't that terrible.
Appalling service - ludicrous attitude - inexplicable response
Vodaphone don't appear to monitor these reviews and clearly don't care so there isn't much point posting this - but I will anyway.
My family have had 3 plans with Vodaphone for several years: wife $40 phone & SIM, daughter $40 phone & SIM, me $15 SIM only.
My very old phone died, and I thought it would be easy to simply buy a new one and transfer the SIM. Unfortunately the smallest I could make my SIM was "micro" and most phones now require "nano".
We contacted Vodaphone to get a replacement SIM. Spent a fruitless half an hour plus in onli...ne chat with complete twit who was obsessed with selling me a new phone plan and upgrading me to a $40 SIM plan that I did not want, couldn't tell me how much the new total would be (it came up different every time he added it up), kept saying he could send a new SIM but wouldn't actually arrange it when asked and in the end almost cancelled my daughter's plan for some reason. While arguing with the first twit I jumped online on a second PC and arranged a replacement SIM with another person - it took 5 minutes. I specifically asked if we needed to activate the new SIM and was told it was pre-activated.
Can I don't even put an start? it's awful service.
I was vodafone client for years, no problem. Then I wanted to upgrade my services but requested a no lock in contract but end up getting it (I was unaware of) then not even a month in, I started to get Vodafone messages saying they were no longer providing service in my area (I am in rural Australia), the messages were quite harass, every fortnight even. Ok, not problem, went to a vodafone shop to make sure if I could change to another mobile provider without incurring in extra payment, they said yes, no problem. NO ONE ever mentioned about get...ting bill for. Months after a months still getting bills for a SERVICE they hasn't provide and ALSO they forced me to get out of this. CALL CENTER is useless and said to me I shouldn't listen what they said in the vodafone shop!!! I mean are you serious? it's your OWN vodafone team! he said I should just call them, well guess what? when you search the vodafone website, there is no CALL CENTER number! You need to find it other ways. WHAT A AWFUL HORRIBLE SERVICE. It feels like scam!
Useless Customer Service
At least 25 Minute waiting time on the phone is not good enough, hire some staff you tight arses !
Coverage is good and they will give you all the time in the world to sign you up but heaven forbid you require a change to your service.
Questions & Answers
Each time I go to activate my SIM card each form of identity is not valid. Is it because I am supposedly underaged, which shouldn't be the case since I am an adult.
