    How are folk getting it under the usage menu, I have 3.0 Beta 3 but obviously they have "hacked" it in, but how?

    From what I have read, it happens to people who previously jailbroke their phones and used a hack to show percentage then installed 3.0. It somehow carries over.

    Correct me if I'm wrong....

    There is actually a setting for it somewhere in 3.0. Someone posted a screenshot a few weeks ago.

    You'll have to find that screen shot. I certainly have not heard of this being a feature at all, and I've done a lot of research.

    I think BGR claimed to have a later (unreleased) version of 3.0 with that setting in it.

    Actually, they have just modified some of the code in the firmware to have this setting appear. Just as MacRumors found the video recording screen through a similar process it can be done, it just has to be dug for in the code. Don't be mistaken, BGR doesn't have a unreleased version of the beta, neither do they have a jailbroken phone.
