    i took the iPhone 2g dock and took it apart. I took the whole "white" surface on top to the bottm and only left the bottom base and the dock connector!

    hey i already had the 2g dock and didn't wanted to pay for new one lol

    Plus point? ALL phones work with this..i used it for 3GS w many cases and they wall fit :)

    My JBL dock/system fits the iPhone 4 great with any case or bumper without any of the lock in universal "holders."

    Only thing that worries me about that stuff is the only thing holding the phone up is the 30 pin connector... So if I roll over one morning to turn the alarm off and I wind up punching the phone... bad things will ensue.

    can anyone else confirm that taking the top off of a dock is easy?

    Use the universal dock without any inserts. Works like a champ.

    Good Deal! I was looking at the 3gs doc today and figured it'd just put it in the box! I may have to take it apart :D
