Apple may have launched the iPhone 3G in Australia nearly a year ago, but it’s only now that carrier Vodafone Australia will bring the much-vaunted Visual Voicemail feature to local customers.

The carrier announced today that it would make Visual Voicemail available to all iPhone 3G customers by the close of business this Friday; customers will receive a text message when they’re ready to go with the new service.

Visual Voicemail presents users with a menu of new voicemails, from which they can pick and choose the messages they want to hear. The feature – long available to US iPhone customers via AT&T’s network – lets consumers avoid long phone calls listening to one message after another, but it has not been available over Australian carriers until now because it requires network-specific software to control the interactions between handset and voicemail system.

Interested Vodafone iPhone 3G customers should install or update to the latest iTunes software to ensure they have access to Visual Voicemail, the carrier advised.
