    Hey, quick question. I'm considering getting a 3gs, as I only have a 2g right now.

    But can I use its voice control to play an artist on the iPhone when my iPhone is locked?

    If so, how? Do I press the home button or can I press the Mic button on my headphones?

    And last question (same topic, assuming I can), can I voice control an artist when my iPhone is in my pocket? (Example: Phone is in my pocket and I press the mic button on my headphones and say Play Linkin Park)

    Thanks a lot! This question is a deciding factor in me getting the 3gs.

    You hold down the home button on the 3GS and the voice control pops up. From there you can say "play songs by *artist*". This also works when the phone is locked.

    I am unsure about voice control through the headphones, never tried it.

    Voice control through the headset is the same way - hold down the center button and wait for the audible tone. After which you state the song/artist you want to hear or the name of the person you want to call.

    Yes, you can do voice control through headphones too. Just press and hold mic button.
