Excellent customer service
My wife and I bought new phones and decided to stay with Vodafone. I'm glad we did as the help we received was unexpected. To get the help we needed on a Saturday, outstanding. Instant response from both messenger and phone help. Our new phones were up and running fast.
I couldn't be happier with the help we received.
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.
No customer loyalty. Vodafone just take take take take and give nothing back in my son's situation.
My son has Been with vodafone for 3 years( against my will). Today Optus gave him a better deal for a new phone and plan according to his credit rating. He has never missed or have been late with a payment with Vodafone. They were offering him $10 for his phone as trade in.(worth $400 today, Big insult). With Optus He got to keep his old phone, Upgrade to a better one on a similar plan as Vodafone, for a much cheaper rate. I never thought he would leave Vodafone, but today he realised that customer loyalty means jack to Vodafone once they ...get your money!!! What's worse he offered to pay out the last 2 months of his contract to get them off his head and they wouldn't let him pay for it on the spot. He has to wait to be billed. I don't understand. Anyway no skin off his nose as his reception is better now. He noticed the difference almost instantly. His monthly costs have reduced and he is a Happier customer now that Optus went out of their way to take his business. Vodafone when are you going to learn that you need to look after your customers. You need to stop assuming that they won't leave. I was with Vodafone for years. Their actions were barbaric. I won my case, through the ombudsman and my 3 year contract was terminated without penalty after 18 months. That's how barbaric they were in my situation. I think I was the only person in Australia that had their service terminated without incoming call only option. I wasn't late with payments. Totally up to date My phone got stolen and was insured and they gave me a loan phone waiting for my insurance to pay me out and get another phone through Vodafone. They disconnected my loan phone before I could get my replacement and left me with no phone for 2 days. They refused to budge and reconnect it. So I refused to return the loan phone. I'm a carer for my mum. She was in a wheelchair. My auntie was in hospital dying, her doctors had my number as first point of contact for her. They could not call me. Vodafone realised their mistake and said they would reconnect my loan phone. They didn't l. I was on the phone with them for two days crying stressing because I had to be at the hospital yet I was too scared to leave my mum incase she had an emergency(wheelchair,) my child was at school and anyone that was reliant on me could not make contact with me for two days. I couldn't even ring Vodafone cos I didn't have a phone. Please remember that this was not for late payment I always paid on time for about 18 months at $65. In the end I went to office works bought a phone, rushed to the hospital and my auntie died 1 day later. They knew my auntie was dying yet they refused to let me keep my loan phone for an extra day. I missed my auntie being conscious. Doctors tried to ring me and they even wrote me a supportive letter as to what their actions caused me. I was a mess. I never got to say goodbye and I still Hate vodafone for their actions. There!!!! Honest review done on a greedy company.
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.

Top Services from Vodafone Technical Support
I wish to express my support to the technical support team in Vodafone. Impressive technical knowledge from Vivian J (Technical Support) helping me with an international call issues affecting my mobile.
Job well done Vivian!
you are a cash cow
The Voda network in high density areas work - not well but works.
My issue is that they sell a mobile for $1800 on a 3 year plan - at the end of the plan it i worth $150.00 max on a $2500.00 replacement (Samsung have a $700 trade in). Telstra will offer a $800 43 inch colour TV - Optus will throw in a new smart watch. Both offers kill the Voda offer.
Voda has lost me - I am not a cash cow - my only issue is how to cancel my Voda contracts - and that seems they have made difficult
A pox on Voda
Super happy customer
I actually love Vodafone... I love the quick online and over the phone customer service... every single interaction I’ve had with Vodafone staff is amazing and they are so helpful... I’ve been Vodafone for about 15 years and never ever had a problem they couldn’t solve and always so friendly...I have recently changed to a plan with 100g data for a very cheep rate...
Honestly couldn’t be happier with Vodafone.
Best provider by far
They treat their customers with respect and integrity. They definitely value their customers and give them the best solution. I would recommend joining them, and making sure you stick with them for long because they will give you good treatment as a loyal customer. You just got to be loyal to them
Our experience for over 20 years with Vodafone staff is always 100%. I have to be fair & say that in the past the infrastructure needed urgent upgrades where it all happens & I welcomed it with a smile the great improvements. My recent contact that we had in-store at Westfield-Belconnen in Canberra was most pleasant experience. The store manager & his assistant was most helpful noticing us outside the store 30 minutes past closing hours. He approached us & offered to let us in to sort our 4 old SIM cards to 4 new ones for us to be ready for 5G....Both males where very professional not pushy into anything that we didn’t need. They both assisted in setting up plus activating our 4 devises. This was our first experience in store & must say it was most pleasant experience. We generally deal with Vodafone over the phone with staff in India who are as equally pleasant & knowledgeable. Well done Vodafone for excellent training & selection of appropriate staff in your company. We are very happy customers.
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.
Overcharged long time customer
Updated my phone in 2019, added a I pad that I canceled before receiving , it was supposed to be canceled 19 months later I find out I have continued to be charged for iPad and NBN plan 3 calls later still waiting for a promised call back and refund that is substantial !!! No response but I keep getting txt for rating customer service ? Up your game call me as promised and give me a refund !
Been a customer for years
Been a customer for years on personal and business and never really had many issues that could be resolved by them. I'v also had phones with others and the other majors are just sending everything offshore where it's almost impossible to talk to anyone in australia. I'll be with them for the next few years as they haven't given me a reason to look elsewhere.
Questions & Answers
I have been charged $148 this month as part of my bill. The $148 is itemised as ‘pricing plan’ . What is that?
TXT confirmation to another mobile what does this question mean when I am topping up my phone
