BIG THANKS to JohnR! all sorted.

Don't know how many times i have seen that statement on geek zone before but it has been plenty.

I knew it would be sorted when i received a PM from him. After a few phone calls/text messages and Spark rejecting my transfer a few times it turned out to be a little mistake on my side. I was on the Spark 'one bill' which i assumed was just another form of Prepay that was charged to my home account.

I can now put myself in the vodafone happy camper group.

You are not alone.

I seem to recall many a port failing because the customer assumed that onebill is just prepay.....

Then perhaps vodafone should check that after the first rejected porting?

It's a automated process and when and porting a Prepay number is different than porting a on-account number

jmh: I'm a bit fed up with them too.  Bought a phone on contract in 2011 but returned it when I discovered that I couldn't get a signal.  Phone taken back at shop and agreed that no further payment required.  Billed for first month, so I contacted them and explained - no problem, nothing to pay.  Billed the second month, third etc but I ignored the bills in view of previous call I made.  Sent a debt collectors letter about 9 months later - rang them promptly and explained the situation.  After checking, they got back to me and agreed that there was nothing to pay.  Two weeks ago, another debt collectors letter saying I need to pay over $400 followed by another one a week later.  I've telephoned and emailed a reply.  I'm getting sick of this.  I'm being threatened and hounded for a debt I NEVER OWED.  I will never use their service again.


Ask to speak with their complaints team or even their in-house lawyer and remind them of what happened to Orcon when Orcon unjustifiably ruined someone's credit record. In your case, VF's conduct is not as outrageous but under the Privacy Act, you have a right to correct incorrect information that an entity holds about you. The fact is you have clearly communicated to them on multiple occasions that you don't owe them any money (and they have accepted this). They have a legal obligation to sort this out.*

Also, shame them into action on social media if necessary.

Sorry this has dragged on so long. I have raised it directly with a senior member of the recoveries team, they have told me account will be closed today at EC Credit and there is no default.

Thank you for your patience.
