    is there a 3rd party A/V dock i can get that works with my 3GS? i really dont have $50 to spend to get the Apple cables and i see multiple docks for the 3G but none say they are compatible with the 3.0/3GS. sucks. hopefully there is one out there that im just not seeing. i want to put movies on my phone and be able to watch them on TV. tired of dealing with my outdated laptop pc to watch movies.

    thanks for any help!

    Pretty good thread about this

    seems like iphone 3.0+ only works with the apple cables

    Unfortunately Apple has implemented a hardware lock ( there is a small chip in the AV cables) that doesn't allow the iPhone to output video without it

    Not know the detail.......just try again.......

    If you want to buy the stuff you post, try to give me a word.....

    an idiot is born every day

    you guys are spending money on replicas, HOPING that this will work ( with zero evidence that it does)


    when its been shown that the only thing that works with the iphone 3g/3gs ( running OS 3.0 + ) is the apple av cables ( and also the $40 scosche cables)

    good luck with that
