    I have a feeling this only works on the new phones/iPad2, as it doesn't work on my iPhone 3GS

    I could be wrong but I think it only works on iPhone 4/4s.

    Location based reminders were removed from the iPad during the iOS 5 beta cycle. The geo fence was not accurate enough. They may come back if Apple can come up with a way to monitor the location as cheap as with the geo fence in the iPhone 4.

    assume that they are taking wifi only ipad2s into consideration, becuase 3G ipad2s should not be much difference with an iphone.

    The iPhone 4 includes a new technology package that allows the phone to know where it is without constantly firing up the GPS. This active geo-fence is what makes location based reminders work without draining the battery. It's only on the 4 and 4S, which is what those phones support location based reminders and the other devices currently do not.

    With the assisted GPS tech on the 3GS and iPad, using both cellular pings and wifi addresses, this is also possible, however in the iOS 5 beta it was not accurate enough in use.

    I suspect they are still working on a software fix, but as usual Apple has not made any public feature statements.
