that's strange. My remote controls the iphone perfectly! I can change the vol and ffd/rev songs. I noticed that if the phone isn't seated all the way down it won't work.you can buy an iphone dock adapter set - 3 of them for $9 or so. i bought a set to put in my ipod hifi and universal dock when i use my iphone with them (yeah, i know it's not necessary, but i wanted them anyway).
the ipod hifi remote cannot control the iphone. my remote works perfectly with my ipods, but does absolutely nothing with my iphone when i'm playing music or podcasts on it.
yes and then you hit yes...it goes into airplane mode and you don't get the annoying radio static from the phone and it works.How does this work? I haven't tried in my Hi-Fi and I suppose I could... but I remember when I first got the iPhone on launch day I tried to put the iPhone into my "Universal" dock and I got a message on the screen saying its not a compatible accessory.
