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.
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
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.
I never pay my bill late but they send threatening emails!
I think Vodafone tries to get people to pay their bills twice:
It’s not just very rude but also dodgy behavior that Vodafome shows me my bill as being ‘Overdue’ in large red type, when it's been paid and on the date that it is due on the ‘My Vodafone’ App and still show overdue the following day. And then, on the same day send me a threatening email that late fees will be charged within 24 hours, when all that happened is the credit card I have on file with them was renewed, and when I noticed this, I updated it right away.
They really should...
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 .
The kindest and most helpful customer service
After moving internet and mobile services from Telstra I am so impressed with how kind each person is that I've spoken to over the phone. It has been a seamless transition! Telstra don't even allow you to call up anymore on the phone... I highly recommend vodafone! Great service :)

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
Happy with the service
Happy with the service. Only a few black spots that happen with all networks. I choose to stay with Vodafone because of the $5 overseas roaming. Hopefully we will be able to again soon
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
