    Hi,

    can someone confirm that the remote controls on the apple in-ear headphones are working 100% with iPhone 3.0?

    As I understand it, it is a hardware limitation. Surely the 3rd-gen iPhone will fully support them.

    I tested them last night on the "old" iPhone 3G and they still don't work even with the new 3.0 Software which is a shame in my opinion.

    However, I read reviews, that they obviously seem to work with the new iPhone 3G S.

    They work flawlessly, just like they do on an iPod touch (volume and play/stop/skip controls).

    I'm using the In-Ears with the 3GS I recently bought and it's working perfectly right now. I'm not sure if it'll work with the 3G though.

    It's a hardware limitation on the 3G. IT doesn't have the right connections in the headphone jack.

    Apple In-ear Headphones work fully with iPhone 3g s

    They work perfectly for me. It does also list on the Apple site that they are compatable with the 3g s. Scroll down to the bottom right before the reviews.

    I spoke to a "Genius" and they told me why.

    It is to do with the jack connector on the stereo in earphones and the connector to the iPhone 3G.

    I assume this has been changed in the iPhone 3GS for it to work.

    Ha! I just discovered that the volume works on the 3GS today!

    I was on the subway today and was trying to FF to the next song w/ a double click but must have hit hi because the volume turned up. I swear I gasped out loud like I just found a $20 bill at the bottom of my bag. lol.
