    There may be something commercially available on the market to serve as a desk "holder" bracket for my iPhone but I could not find one to suit me.

    I use my iPhone a lot for business but am at my desk a bunch and wanted to be able to have a bracket for my iPhone to use almost like a desk phone. The only desk brackets I found had the phone sitting loose on the bracket. I wanted something to hold the phone firm.

    I ended up buying a Griffen car bracket to "grab" the phone and screwing the bracket only to a M2 Mobile Stand.

    The first picture (top left) is the original Griffen car bracket.

    Works great!

    I am pretty sure that apple sells a dock for the iPhone.

    I agree the apple product looks better, but I'm always aware of 'touching' the iphone while in it's dock, it seems it's mainly secured by the multiconnector, and that looks a bit fragile. I would be happier with a more substantial stand, holding the phone by the whole of its body and giving it some support against those heavy screen 'presses'.

    I agree. That's why I made the stand. It can now really act like a desk phone. It is sturdy and can be called with one hand. The docking station really does not do the same thing.

    You did understand that the upper left picture was the item that I got the iphone holder bracket from, right? That is not the finished item that I use. I think the finished item looks fine, although I did not spend a lot of time trying to make sure I got the best pictures.

    + 1 for the Apple Iphone dock, everything else looks tacky overly large


    I may paint mine black to see how it looks :)

    How much would it cost to replace the dock connector WHEN it breaks ?

    Can it hold the phone horizontally for playing videos?.

    Are there any docks that do this ?

    You want this: http://thoughtout.biz/PED3

    I've got one and am very happy with it. It's easy to take the phone in and out, yet it stays in the stand very well...even with a case on.
