    My roommate recently bought the $99 iPhone 3G and when she went to take a picture for the first time it said the camera would like to use her position. Two questions. Is that for geotagging, and I also have a 3G iPhone but have never been prompted by the camera, do I possibly have the feature disabled? (Note: I have location services turned on)

    I think that the 3G has been geotagging since it came out, but the warning that pops up is a recent feature. You should be able to check the EXIF data on the photos (using iPhoto or other software) to see if there are GPS co-ordinates attached to the picture.

    By default the iPhone 3G asks this question twice for each app that uses Location Services. After that the question is no longer asked.

    Note that you can check with Preview whether a photo is geotagged. In the Inspector window search for GPS information.
