    OK, another dumb question, but it looks like you have to have the iPhone ON to charge it.
    Is this right?
    I just thought this was strange since every other phone/PDA I've had you could charge it while it is off.
    There is no mention of this (that I saw), in the PDF manual.

    I noticed that if you turn off the phone then place it in the dock it will turn on. I simply power it down while in the dock and it charges just fine.

    Not a huge problem but I would like to see it fixed.
