    I am not a developer and I have a question about beta 4. I recently bought a pair of ipod headphones for the volume control function on the wire. To my surprise the volume function does not work on the iPhone 3G, only the iPod touch. I was wondering if anyone had this pair of headphones and if they had tried them with beta 4 of 3.0. If so, is the volume control working?? Thanks

    We would need to know what headphones they are. Link?

    That's most likely a hardware thing, the same problem goes for the in-ear models of those and there has been numerous threads about it.

    Most likely the new iPhone will support the volume control.

    There is nothing you (or anyone) for that issue can do. 3.0 does not solve the volumn controls on the ear phones (as well as in ears). It is a hardware related issue.

    These headphones, as well as the original apple in-ear earbuds with volume control will NEVER work on the current iphone or iphone 3G - all iphone models lack the necessary fourth recepticle in the headphone connector to receive the volume control signals sent from the remote.

    I'm 100% certain that future iphone generations will support these though

    (the 4 "recepticles" (for lack of a better word,m I'm not a native english speaker, sorry ;) ) are... 1+2 L/R audio (stereo), 3 = Play, Pause, FWD, RWD (i.e. center button on remote), 4 = volume +/- controls

    Thanks for the quick responses. I was unaware that this would be a hardware issue. And you guys have cleared it up. Thanks a lot.
