    Hey guys,

    Quick question, pretty much want a dock and I've heard the official iPhone 4 dock doesn't work when the phone as a bumper on it. It'd be a hassle to keep taking it off and on all the time, so,

    Have any of you guys found any docks which are good, and if so, could you link me to them? Remember, I'm looking for UK sites, not too good with the shipping etc.

    Thanks :)

    without using any adapters the universal dock will fit the IP4 with the bumper on but the only thing holding it up is the usb connector.

    I picked up two of the old edition Docks on sale in Tesco for £5 each last year, I don't see any reason as to why they wouldn't hold the new iPhone 4 and they work with the apple remote that came with my iMac.

    When I put my iP4 into the universal dock (it will fit with the bumper on) I get a message saying that it's not compatible.

    With any dock connectors, No - but without it will charge nicely. :cool:

    I've had a long day, excuse me, but I don't understand :eek: If its meant to be a joke, which I suspect it is? Then tell me it tomorrow when I've slept, and I'll certainly be in a much more jovial mind frame :p

    Funny you should ask, as recently came across http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.42177 and thought 'solves the bumper problem, doesn't it?'

    Yes, I know you asked for uk options, but shipping's free and I've never had a problem other than the wait (1-2 weeks)
    Disclaimer; I haven't got one either, but all a dock is; is a stand with 30pin USB pass through.

    Was presuming this was a funny with 'bumper' removal implied, but then realised the universal dock comes with inserts for the different models...
