    I am on a jailbroken 1.1.1 iPhone. By accident I did a triple tap on my home button while my phone was locked and it brought up iPod controls that I could use without having to unlock my phone. Maybe this was common knowledge, but I didn't know of it! I never upgraded to 1.1.2 and never got to see if it worked in that version. Now on 1.1.3 it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know if there is a way to make this happen? I haven't upgraded, I was just playing with another 1.1.3 phone and noticed it didn't have the same functionality.

    Didn't know about that feature but I just tried it on my 1.1.2 phone and it works there.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I just tried it on 1.1.3 and a double click (when the screen is on, but locked) works – it brings up play, and back/forward.

    Nice tip, by the way, thanks, I didn't know about it.

    This feature has always been included, it just isn't all that well known. It is really helpful when all you want to do is change the volume/pause the music without bringing up all of the controls. It is also onthe touch

    So it did work? It didn't on the 1.1.3 phone I have.

    Yep, definitely. If the screen's off, a triple click brings it up, and if the screen's on a double click does.

    FWIW, this isn't a new feature. The double-click control was added to the iPhone with 1.1.1. The "triple-click" of which you speak is one click of the home button to wake up the iPhone, then a double-click to go to the iPod app.

    setting > general > home button.

    Might be that in the 1.1.3 model you were using it had the function set to off.

    Three taps on home button turns on iPod

    Three taps to my home button generally turns me on as well.:p
