Just had a thought. I'm planning to get both a case for my iPhone 3G and I was going to consider a dock. Though, I imagine, with a case on the iPhone it would be impossible to fit in that exact shape of the dock. Depending on the complexity of the case, it could be tiresome to be always removing the case just to dock at home. Did many of you with the original iPhone that included the dock never use it because of the case you were using? There's that invisible shield stuff, to protect the surface and probably wouldn't effect the dimensions of the phone, but I want something that can absorb impacts for accidental drops. Maybe something like a leather type pouch with a flap, allowing you to use it and then close the flap to protect the screen, and as easy as sliding it out later at home for a dock. Right now I'm just using a leather case that came with my Garmin Nuvi, leather on the outside, soft on the inside, and covers 96% of the phone. But having to slide it out every time, I'm worrying I may drop it. PS: Also, how to cases effect the many holders for cars? I hope to find some cradle that hold the phone both in landscape (for Turn by Turn GPS in the future) and portait mode, plus charge and possible fm transmitter. There's CarFM, which clamps (so cases shouldn't be a problem), and does all that, but not sure it can rotate to landscape.
