    The volume control on my in-ear headphones doesn't work with my 3G, presumably because it lacks the hardware but will it work with the 3GS? I assume Apple will have included the ability this time around. Has anyone seen this confirmed anywhere?

    Funny you ask that because I was wondering the same thing. Leave it to Apple to provide earphones and a phone and the two don't fully function together. :rolleyes: I hope this is not the case for the 3Gs.

    Actually, looking at the Apple store at what's in the box it says 'Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic' as opposed to just 'Stereo headset with mic' for the old 3G, so I'm guessing yes.

    It is listed as a fully-compatible device on the In-Ear Headphone store page.
