Best Mobile Service
I have been a Vodafone customer for many years. I have had other service providers both in Australia and Canada and none of them could measure up, not even close, to the service I get from Vodafone. A few months ago I had a problem with the service and I rang Vodafone for support. Not only did I get straight through to a real person who was very patient with me, but he also took me through each step to fix the problem on my phone. I pay $30 a month (paying manually) and have accrued 200 gb of free data including bonuses for paying on time. One...of my friends was having heaps of problems with her phone service and I advised her to change to Vodafone and she has not had any problems. If you're not happy with your service, change to Vodafone and YES I am a customer and not a Vodafone employee.
5g with vodafone is awesome and it performs better then 4G

Bring back better prepaid Like combo
Combo plans better . Prepaid needs better data 15gb c'mon lol 2021 data is cheap., Update prepaid better. I miss combo plus plans ..... Good reception though but don't be stingy lol.
Excellent value mobile plan: 12 months for $150 (from OfficeWorks)
Was on a Telstra $55 a month post-paid for long time. 40GB data and unlimited calls, and according to Telstra the “best option for me”, and also the cheapest option they have available at the moment.
Because I use mostly WiFi, I average about 5GB mobile data a month and I always felt was paying too much but was too lazy to do anything about it. My main concern with switching to a smaller data plan was that “what if I go over” when on holidays or travelling. Sometimes I use 20~30GB a month during summer. And Telstra had no smaller plan availabl...e. I did ask them about switching to a pre-paid SIM but it was all too hard and the offers weren’t that cheap either. Eventually decided to shop around and ended getting Vodafone 200GB pre-paid SIM with 12 months expiry for $150. Normally $200 but OfficeWorks was selling it for $150 as promo. For me it’s the best of both worlds. At average usage of 5GB a month it should last me the full 12 months. And if I end up binging on holidays there’s no risk going over my monthly allowance. Activation was smooth and took about 1/2h to switch. So from $660 a year I’m now paying $150 a year for my mobile without having to worry about paying monthly bills or getting hit with fees. Vodafone coverage is probably not as comprehensive as Telstra but where I typically need data it has been more than adequate and at least par with Telstra. In fact when commuting from & to work I was getting average 20 Mbps with Telstra and I’m now getting up to 170 Mpbs
loyal customers should be rewarded. not other way around
i’m giving 2 stars just because they offer great deals for new customers.
Not so great to loyal customers( i’ve been with them for 8 years ) . they offer a plan with 80gb for 45$ a month if you’re a new customer but not for someone it has been with them for 8 years .. i’ll have to pay more to get more Gb that i actually don’t need when i just wanted that specific plan.
loyal customers should get at least same deals as new customers … AT LEAST .
great provider for NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY .
Lots of data
I have a pre paid sim only plan. I have automatic recharge so I get extra data every month. I like the feature that you don't loose internet if you run out of data it just goes slower, not that I ever would as I have 200gb in my data bank.
Such a waste of time
I bought a prepaid sim card for a new business number and tried THREE times to activate it from my mobile, and TWICE from my laptop and it wouldn't process. This is taking up much valuable time that I don't have to spare. I then call Vodafone to try help me, I was passed along 3 times until I could actually get someone to help me. I had to repeat myself several times to the operator and just got so frustrated for wasting my time I've decided to go with another provider. No business with Vodafone again.
Thanks for making me realise you're not w...
pretty bad since TPG merger
Coverage was average, no dropouts but generally pretty slow for my area (Sydney metro). Bought into a prepaid special intro offer that promised data rollover, bonus data and a discount for first 3 renewals - this was not honoured, charged me full rate on the first renewal & no data rollover. Staff picked up the error but only offered extras credit if I renewed at full price again. nah..
Terrible mobile data
Had been with Telstra for a year and had had no problems switched to Vodafone and have had so many problems. The first problem was trying to transfer my number it didn't work. This was kind of the other providers problem but still. The coverage has been terrible compared to Telstra I'm in the middle of a town and there 1 bar. There was also a network outage for a few days. Not very happy with them will be switching back to Telstra.
After sales assistance? Not received
After two years, I decided to return to Vodafone as a telephone operator. I specify that with the previous provider (Kogan mobile) I had a great time, spending half. However, having purchased a smartwatch, Kogan does not offer the possibility of combining it with the phone to use it independently. So after some research, Vodafone was offering the best price between Optus and Telstra. As soon as the rechargeable plan was activated, the website and the app did not recognize my phone number. After three weeks of waiting and calling customer suppor...t every 48 hours (following their directions), the problem did not go away. In the three weeks of requesting assistance, no one from Vodafone Australia contacted me trying to find a solution. I, therefore, decided to activate Optus.
I bought a prepaid voucher. Activated it, I tried to access the internet, couldn't. When I did, I found it was all gone. I texted Vodafone. I got a poor response. They said my security code wasn't the same. I texted them the next day. They fixed me up with a new security code. And arranged for a new voucher.
Vodafone service is good , I have 5 years experience with Vodafone. I’m very happy with the customer support, they are very helpful. I recommend Vodafone for best experience. Thank You

Nice customer service and good products
Customer service are always helpful and friendly with any issues. Coverage in rural areas isnt amazing but its good otherwise. Prepaid recharges are decent value and plans are also pretty good.
I love Vodafone
I can't understand the bad reviews here. Vodafone are great! Vodafone are really good and helpful and have given free minutes during Covid 19. They have always been helpful and obliging :-) I have never had drop outs or problems.
Vodafone uses Aus Post Records to verify addresses...Aus post records can by wrong!!
No problem with Vodafone service ...hate the merry go round of departments ..but i think thats same all round.
Today I had an interesting incident and want to share
I have been at my current physical address for 10 years
I took our a prepaid SIM with Vodafone a few years agoafter approx 2016
Jumped thru all the hoops ets regarading verification, addy etc etc.4YEARS ago
Today I got an SMS from Vodafone ..."We've suspended your service as we havent been able to confirm your address details. Please call us on 155 ...etc etc. HOw absolutely charming ( A nicer note of "Please update your details otherwise we will have to suspend your service.... Bottom Line" Aussie post delivers very little to me ...I have a PO Box for all my parcels cos unless its from Kogan, Internnode one of the big accounts OR a Passport ....they just dont deliver stuff to the home addy. Vodafone uses Aussie Pose to verify physical addresses. I gave Vodafone my physical address Ausie Post said they didnt recognise it....... Frightening eh? Major source of verification doesnt have correct records. Ayway I got Vodafone to put BOTH my addresses on record. No chance of talking to Corporate or someone who really cares about the long term outcomes of such glitches. Interestingly I cannot put anything on Aus Post website OR even on one of the FBchat rooms ....but will put it on here too . Hope this perhaps gives you an idea of how the verification process could have gone wrong for you. Good Luck.
Questions & Answers
What’s your experience of using Vodafone in Western Australia when travelling
I have no issues with Vodafone Aust, good customer service and my home internet is great been 3 months a couple issues were sorted out very quickly by friendly staff. **** 4 stars
I have been a customer of Vodafone for a few years with both my mobile phone & NBN because I was assured that they were adding towers themselves so as coverage would improve (which it did). Recently the reception on my mobile has now deteriorated markedly along with my NBN connection... After contacting Vodafone on many occasions with no result I am now looking at an alternative NBN connection and ditching Vodafone NBN .Unfortunately, I am still locked into a mobile deal for the next 18months but as soon as I can opt out I shall be doing so.. So disappointed that I have been lied to by Vodafone as I should probably report them to the authorities but that doesn't make the reception any better..
