For those of you on Vodafone, you may be disappointed to know that you won't be getting visual voicemail with your Mango update. That's not too surprising as many carriers won't be able to support this feature, which seems to us to be downplayed by Microsoft.
Likewise, tethering, at least according to the Vodafone blog, won't be initially supported either:
That's kind of interesting about the "initial release" of Mango and wireless hotspot--for now we haven't see too much of this feature and perhaps it's coming down the line in a subsequent patch. Either way, while both visual voicemail and tethering are awesome, the other 498 features that Mango brings will surely make up for it, no?

which country was this vodafone representative commenting from? it might been seen as irrelevant, but i'd really like to know.
The rep would either be from Australia (likely) or Mumbai where all Vodafone Australia customer service reps are based.Blog and most major tech staff are in Australia though. Or at least that was the plan 4 months ago.
