    Is it just me, or has this not been in the Settings menu until 3.0?

    Hmm...could this possibly be a 3GS only feature?

    There are a bunch of options.

    Voiceover - tells you what you push
    Zoom - enables zoom in any application by double tapping with 3 fingers
    White on black - inverts colors
    Mono Audio - self-explanatory
    Speak Auto-Text - Speaks auto-corrections when typing

    And before anyone complains about it being a 'software only thing' the reason it works with the 3G S is because the 3G S has a fourth notch in the headphone jack, where the 3G does not. This is what enables voiceover, and the volume switches on the new headphones (And my in ear Apple ones.)

    the 3G does have 4 'notches' in the headphone jack, as does the 1st gen iphone. this is what enables the in-line remote on the iphone and iphone 3g

    take a look at this image, showing the headphones that shipped with the iphone (and the 3g), clearly showing 3 white rings, which separate the 4 notches
