I have Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G SGH-T679 running Android 2.3.6. I do not see the developer tools anywhere in the Settings menu.

Is there something special needed to get it to show up?

I thought "Developer options" were only hidden in Jelly Bean? – w3dk Mar 31 '13 at 10:19
As w3d indicates, they were hidden with later versions. To reveal them there, you need to go to Settings->About Phone, and tap the "build version" 7 times fast (i.e. like double-tap speed). It usually displays a message then with some congratulations. You might test that on your device, though it should not have been hidden before JB. – Izzy Mar 31 '13 at 10:55
It's under Applications/Development – T. Webster Apr 1 '13 at 8:10

It has only been hidden since Android 4.2.

Back in Android 2.3, you just need to go to Settings - Applications - Development.
