I've read some reviews that say that the new Lightning to 30 pin (The $29. one) adapter won't fit into the phone if it has a case on. Although my iphone5 case is pretty slim I don't want to take it off every time I want to use the adapter. Has anyone had problems with it?

It depends what case you have. It looks like any case with a smaller "oval" cutout will not support the adapter. Looks like you'll need a case with minimal bottom protection or a case that has a open type design (ie. no separation of speakers and port).

Maybe spring for the cable version if you're concerned with case compatibility?
