    A friend of mine showed me his 3gs and all of his screens are too big for the phone. His home screen can scroll up and down and left and right. This is very strange, if you scroll his home screen all the way down you can't see the carrier logo and if you scroll it all the way up you can't read the icon titles on his springboard. Same thing with safari, if you scroll all the way up you can't see the favorites icon etc.

    Has anyone else seen this? If so is there a setting somewhere to disable this. Oh and if I go into his settings, that screen also is too wide and you can scroll it left and right.

    Restore it.
    He installed some sort of Jailbroken software that he didn't know how to use.
    Without a doubt, restoring it will fix it.

    Sounds like he turned on zoom in the accessibility settings. Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Zoom
