    I stumbled across another place online that mentioned the Apple Universal Docks on clearance at Radio Shack. So I went there for lunch and sure enough I picked up a Universal Dock for only $20.00.
    Just thought I would pass it along if anyone was interested.

    I'm going to stop by on the way to work in a few hours. Hopefully they have them in Houston! I'll love to pick one up for $20.

    I had been wanting for a while but couldn't stand to spend 50 bucks for it. I am going to stop by the other Radio Shack in town after work to pick up another so I can have one at work and home.

    I can post a pic of the dock if you really want but it is just Universal Apple Dock.

    I've never seen it so that's why I asked for a pic. If not, then no biggie. I ordered a cheap non-oem dock via ebay yesterday for $7 shipped.

    Here you go. I wanted it so I could dock with my Switcheasy case.

    Very nice and the remote is a nice touch as well. Wish I would've known about this dock and saved my self $7 and just added another $13 for the OEM.

    It was a great deal until you paid $6.00 for an extended warranty on a $20 dock! The sales guy must love you. :p:eek::)

    Considering the dock is originally 50 bucks, I think it will be ok.

    I struck out at the 2 places I called on my way to work. Maybe tomorrow I'll call around and see if they're available at the ones near my house.

    Okay..

    The local Radio Shack next to my work has a few at this price. But my question for the OP (and everyone else) is which versions of the iPhone are you using with it. The box appears to only state the 1st one, but not the 3G, 3GS, or 4.

    Will this dock work for all iPhones, or will those with the newer ones get the dreaded "this device will not work with this accessory" message?

    BL.

    I am using it with the iPhone 4 and a Switcheasy case.

    Yay. Picked one up after work today. It was listed at $24.95 but it rang up as $19.99...weird. Don't really need it but for $20, nice little trinket to have. The remote alone is worth it so it's like I'm getting a dock for free.

    Any way to check stock at local stores online? I'm coming up empty on radio shack's site.

    It is an in store clearance deal. You will not find it online. The best thing to do is just ask whatever store if they have them in stock and then ask the price (what I did anyway).

    So is there an adapter for the iPhone 4?

    There is not an adapter included in the package but Apple does sell them. Also several companies will include adapters to use with the Universal Dock with cases (ex. Switcheasy).
