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
Great customer service and plan prices
Vodafone has been great over the past few years I have been with them, I always receive fast and super friendly customer service when needed and always resolved very quickly. My plan is a very good rate and they do like to retain customers and reward loyalty, there’s some areas around sydney with basic reception and sometimes the network does go down for maintenance. I highly recommend vodafone if you’re mainly looking for an affordable plan. My partner is with Telstra so he can hotspot if we travel to areas with no service but Vodafone gives me the day to day use I need at such a great price.
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.
Great Service, Sad to Go
I was a Vodafone customer for nearly 2 years and I had a great experience. Really good coverage, the perfect plan for what I needed at the time and a useful app to keep track of my data usage. I only moved to a new company because I found that I was only using minimal data (<5GB/month when my plan offered 50GB), so I found a cheaper option elsewhere.
I called to cancel my plan and switch my number to the new company and the customer service team was brilliant - they offered me a few new plan options to try entice me to stay but were very under...standing that my data usage needs were well below what they were offering, so went out of their way to make sure I would have no issues in transferring my number. I cannot fault my experience with Vodafone and am surprised to see so many poor reviews on here.
The Best Aussie Provider By Far
I really don't understand all the negative reviews. I switched to Vodafone quite desperately after going through a nightmare with iiNet where we had to wait 9 months to get nbn installed at our address while PAYING AS IF WE HAD NBN, and got fobbed off constantly. I got sick of it and ended my contract with them early, not before being slapped with a $200 fee for cancelling early, and switched all of our mobile and internet services to Vodafone. Lo and behold, what took iiNet 9 months to pretend to complete, Vodafone got done in less than 7 days...after switching to them! Since they installed nbn, our internet has been flawlessly reliable and extremely fast. The new 5G mobile network is the same, and on the rare occasion we have needed support their staff are extremely friendly, helpful and fast. I have absolutely no complaints so far. Easily the best experience I have ever had with a provider. I will certainly be a customer for many years to come!
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.
I've just had an excellent experience with Revesby Vodafone. Adam changed my phone over to the 60GB red plus plan for $50 each month. I watch ABC iview on my phone and I hotspot to my laptop, so this is ideal for me. Adam was patient and professional as he worked through my request. Thank you Vodafone and Adam.
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.
I love my Vodafone
I think Vodafone is great, they have pretty good prices and gives you a good amount of mobile data at a reasonable price
I've been with them for over 10 years and never had any problems that won't fixed early :)
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.
Excellent service Vodafone Brookside Qld
Moved my mobile service over to Vodafone today after being with another supplier for 15 years. Jackie was professional and gave clear information. Highly recommend her and this Vodafone outlet
Amazing for Metro, not the best
I'll be honest, I've been with Vodafone for 3 years, and will probably continue to use them for as long as I can.
Coverage wise, it's not the best of the bunch, but definitely not the worst. It covers most, if not all of Melbourne. Using the train every day into the city, I can confirm there are one or two black spots that are mostly due to environmental obstructions, but otherwise I always have an amazing service.
At home, I regularly get 250Mbps/40Mbps, and haven't experience an outage or drop out that affected me drastically.
Customer Ser...vice is always patchy, but none of them were outright rude and always did their best to answer any enquiries or resolve any issues I've had. All in all, Vodafone provides the best all-rounder experience.
Excellent customer services
On my last bill I got charged almost 10 times then what I usually pay. I when to Vodafone store at Loganholme. We talked to one of the staff, her name Jenny. She’s really helpful and she acknowledged me on what happened on the bill. I had a really impressive experience with her.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
