I doubt it if this version of 3g have one
Allot of people do enable this feature so they would not use the home button regularly.
In ios 5 it could be turned on by going to:
Settings -> General -> Accessibility. Scroll down to find the “AssistiveTouch” option. Tap on it and set the “AssistiveTouch” option to ON. Once you activate the option, you’ll find a transparent button at the lower-right corner of the screen. Tap on it to bring the touch menu, Then you’ll see the “Home” button option that provides the same function as the physical home button.
iOS AssistiveTouch turns out to be a useful feature that proves pretty handy when any of your device’s hardware buttons stops functioning. It’s not a permanent solution but it may be super helpful in any of the following cases:
■Fix broken iPhone Home button, if it’s not functioning properly – Think you need a hammer to press the Home button so it works? Instead, use the onscreen home button till you get it fixed.
■iPad / iPhone Volume up/down button broken / not working?
■Mute button broken or not functioning properly.
■Having trouble performing gestures.
■iPad / iPhone Power button broken or not working – In AssistiveTouch, tap on the Device and then tap & hold “Lock Screen” option. The “Slide to Power off” option will appear soon.
