It appears that its not on the list. Disappointing. If i call customer serves is there a way they can fix it so it.Will work?
Otherwise i may have to look at changing providers. I didn't pay $600 odd dollars for a smart phone that i can't do anythinges 'smart' with lol
The handsets we sell and support undergo extensive tesing to ensure full compatability for our network.
It may be that some firmware settings on the handset are still locked to the provider you purchased the device from. It may be a good idea to try contacting the handset manufacturer to see if there is any additional information that they can provide. As we do not officially support the device, we are unable to provide and model specific troubleshooting for this handset.

Vodafone in Ireland very kindly emailed me the Handset Configuration details for Samsung S5830 Galaxy Ace. Obviously some of the values need to be altered for local use in Australia, but it is a complete step-by-step list. I've posted a locked copy to Google docs, as it's too long to publish here.
NB Make sure you alter fields as required to Vodafone Australia values, ie APN, MMSC, MMS Proxy, POP3 server, Message Centre, and so on. It's pretty obvious.
Some of the local Oz settings are here, in Gemma's post:

|From the Home screen press Menu > Settings > Wireless controls > Mobile networks > Access Point Names. Touch an APN to edit it and touch the desired setting you would like to change. Press Menu and touch New APN to add an additional APN. While editing press Menu and touch Delete APN, Save to save your changes or Discard to cancel any changes.|
For Vodafone the setting should be.
Proxy <not set>
Port <not set>
Username <not set>
Password <not set>
Server <not set>
MMS proxy live.vodafone.com
MMS port 8080
MMS protocol WAP 2.0 (Might not be seen but it doesnt really matter)
MMS 505 (May be seen as MCC)
Authentication type None
APN type internet + mms
