Not very good for royal customer.
I am with Vodafone form 2007, nearly 15 years, a royal customer, even if my wife said there is better plan with another service provider, I always refuse to switch.
In July 2018, I joined $40 plan, 40G data for 12 months, after expiry, they didn't call me and provide a new plan, I supposed I will automatically roll into a new plan with 40G data but reduce speed after 40G.
Last month, there was issue with WIFI for a couple of days, and I was using mobile to watch movie online, I got an message for 85% data used up, I didn't read in ...detail and didn't paid much attention, then I got the bill for $120, $5 for per G data I used which after 40G. I called their customer service, they are willing to provide $40 discount on the condition that I signed another 12 months contract with them. I told customer service I am with them for 15 years, but they still refused to waive the extra $80, pointing that it was my mistake I didn't read the message in detail.
I cannot even use up 15 GB of my 30 GB plan because of poor network, day or night, No service to even search online ley alone watching a video!! I gave up totally
Vodafone Marion Westfield SA simply woeful -- never again!
On 29 May 2021 I spoke with someone at Vodafone online support staff on a problem with a small white simacrd-driven modem who lights work intermittently during the day or not at all until night time. Which means during the day I have to keep checking the modem is still working. He advised me to approach Vodafone Westfield Marion. On 3 June I did. The lady who served me kept asking me questions that were irrelevant to my issues. Noting my frustration to explain to her in clear and succinct English, she finally tweaked. But then told me to bring ...the modem in and a technician will look at it in five to ten days. It's still under warranty until Dec '21. Why was she so hard of hearing in the first place? Seemed to me she was trying to fob me off, perhaps to get back to her social media on her phone, as was another of her colleague next to me fixated with her social media on her phone. Does anybody at Vodafone work any more? Or are they incapable of listening to customers' qualms? Is this why so many people get frustrated with shop assistants because they have zero listening skills but are quick to mouth off inanities and irrelevancies? I should just be given a new modem for the old one and not be told it'll take up to two weeks. No questions asked for a loyal customer, which obviously means nothing to Vodafone. Well keep on flicking your social media on your phones. That's more important than earning a wage the right way.
Advrage 20-25mbps speed, but i have seen it reach speeds of up to 90mbps in good reception. This service finaly allowes you to do mass updates like the 77gb star wars battlefront 2 update.Speed is awsome! And great deal! The only downfall that effects me is that the coverage is not crazy, if i use my internet while my phone is in the center of the house i only receve 3mps but if i put my phone near a window it can run up to 90mbps, and advragely runs at around 25mbps im guestermating, well thats what i have observed, and i would say every phone...would run differently depending on processors and such, but other then that i am finaly able to do mass updates like the 80gb call of duty updates and stuff that are on that much larger scale. Chears vodafone for bringing us a great deal!
User unfriendly website.
I have been with Vodaphone for 18 months on a sim only plan since I scrapped the landline. The service itself has been faultless, however since I can't understand foreign call centre staff I went online to choose a GB upgrade and found their website so confusing and biased to new customers I ended up changing to another carrier who had an easy to understand website, and had my phone number ported within 24 hours. So long, Vodaphone.
When signed plan, have to pay even I don't use it
Vodafone is treating customers with suspended service.
I signed contract for more than 12 months month-to-month contract and I called them to hold service for 1 month due to traveling. First call the guy said can only suspend since the starting of next bill the 1st Feb for my bill and have to do at least 1 month March, while I travel on 19 Jan and back 22 Feb. I ask is there other option? He said no. Until I raised my voice and say why I could do that before with another number service and now I have to pay for everything even I don't use it. T...
Vodafone service and coverage getting worse
It used to be very good. In fact I was with Vodafone for almost 10 years. However, i started experiencing network issues since last year even in city limits at times. The quality of sales calls have also dropped significantly. They used to be very good in the past. I’m not sure what’s changed, but I’ve decided to look for other options. There are better deals and coverage, my wife was also with Vodafone and moved to Belong. They have much better coverage and value for money. I recommended Vodafone in the past. However wouldn’t be doing it any more.
Billing cycles and final invoice
I have been a customer for 18 years, yes, 18 years! Obviously I have been happy with the service, generally. Any expectation of coverage outside the major cities is a wish list, but I’m a user in the large mainland cities. The overseas usage is fantastic when roaming with other providers ... AUD5 extra on local plan for 24 hours is very worthwhile.
I have 3 mobile services with Vodafone. Today I finally closed 1 number.
My problem is the cost and time of closing down a number. There appears to be a deliberate set of barriers to make this extre...
Customer service is bad
I just called them with an intention to upgrade my plan but the consultant I dealt with was so bad to the point where I was about to say forget about it!
He is very pushy to sell other products and if you say "No, Thank you".. voice changes to show disappointment.
Then ends with "If you agree now then you can't cancel.. yes or no?".. "I just want to hear YES or NO"
This is a very unprofessional attitude from a global company.
