    Don't waste another second

    Reviewed Plan: Vaya Power Plan 18 (V2)

    I can't rate the coverage, call quality, data etc. because I could never get the darn sim operational. They offer a cheap price, good data plan but they wouldn't let me port my number and insisted I buy a new sim. I did that and things still couldn't be ported over. They say you can exit at any time so I said I would leave. They billed me a $20 exit fee, the $18 for 2 months and some other random fee that added in total to $80. I had written down notes about each phone conversation and threatened the ombudsman. It was a waste of time and I ended up paying $38 in fees to leave Vaya. They have poor reviews for a reason. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of Vaya!

    Customer service is "It's all your fault not ours" attitude. Poor communication, they love to fight back but won't rectify the problems. Seems like they are unhappy staff. They have an unusual way of expressing things like costs and usage that is so confusing. They express your usage in ways that are unclear. They take observations of how they are failing and how they can improve as "abuse" and seem to make no attempt to address the problem initially raised. I don't believe that I have had one good customer service experience with them. I am now looking to move away from them. BASED 100% on their customer service.


    Their rates were pretty good at the time.


    Customer service. Also data speed which is advertised as 4G was atrociously slow.

    Horrific customer service... But if you never actually need their customer service, it is a great deal.

    The coverage and mobile service is fine, and the price is fantastic. Just pray you never need customer service, as it is pretty much impossible to get in touch with anyone, either on the phone or through their web site.

    Don't ever join Vaya. Dodgy policies and highly INACCURATE data billing system. You will NEVER get what you paid for. The small amount of money you save is not worth it because you are most likely to be charged with UNFAIR excess usage charge than really saving anything at all. Most of their customers leave within a short period of time. Just do a Google search and you can see for yourself.

    If you have a smart phone of any description you will most likely be charged extra charges every month for International SMS that you do not make. If you are prepared to foot this bill its still an ok deal, but the stress of trying to sort it out with them just makes it not worth it for me. Each international SMS is 35c but if you multiply this by the 9 charges i got last month it bumps the cost up to almost $25. Vaya will not refund your charges as they say your phone handset is responsible. I have contacted my ombudsman!

    Big Mistake - Don"t Sign Up

    Reviewed Plan: Vaya Power Plan 45 (V2)

    Cannot complain about customer service - there is None! Joined almost 1 month ago, and while happy with coverage , which is the same as Optus , the customer service is really non existent . Two weeks ago received a message that I had exceeded my International limit, (by 35cents) despite having not used phone for any such call or sms. Rang them and surprisingly got through to a customer service agent. She said that I had sent an international sms and thus exceeded limit by 35 cents. I explained that we had not sent any SMS and that she might like to ring any number I had sent sms to to check this... then the call dropped out... , I'd give her the benefit of doubt but there was no return call to resolve the issue, so I think she hung up on me !!! I then rang back, 4 time times, only to have the call drop out at 8 minutes and 30 seconds after listening to how they are busy! I then sent an email, observing that their website says they will be back in touch within 24 to 48 hours --- don't believe it, two weeks later and still no return email. Despite all this i proceeded to pay my account, including the 35 cents, but today all services, data and phone ceased today - who knows why. Today , I tried ringing them from my phone, but even this call is barred, so again i tried to ring them.... you guessed it, three phone calls later, each one dropping out at the 8 minute mark. So - learn from my mistake - avoid them like the plague. Tomorrow off to change carrier and send these details to Ombusdman!
