I'm looking for a dock for my iPhone to charge next to my bed and hopefully the speakers will help me get up in the morning. Something that costs no more than $200 and has a clock on it too. I know I can use the iPhone's clock but I'd rather have one with a clock.

1/8" minijack and a 1980ish Sony receiver. :)

I have this.

Pretty sure there is a newer version. I have the Otterbox defender and so I don't have to take my case off, I use this.

Doesn't look great but it does what I want. Do you think it'll fit the iPhone with the official bumper on?

Actually I'm leaning more toward the iA63. But thanks for leading me to their website :p

I don't buy button. I guess I'll look for one on ebay.

It might be worth waiting for the Elevation Dock:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hop/elevation-dock-the-best-dock-for-iphone

They met their kickstarter goal so they'll start making them soon. You should donate now, though. By donating $60 you'll get one when they're ready. After that they'll cost $90 retail.

Expensive? Yeah, but watch the video. It looks like it'll be worth it.
I like it but I wanted something with a clock so I wouldn't have to worry about the iPhone's screen being on all the time (which I'm not sure whether it's bad or ok for the screen) and I also wanted something with a speaker.

My gastroenterologist.:p

( Get it? Dock....Doc. Little medical pun. Very little. Sorry:eek:)
Is it because he's been inside of you? Using an endoscope of course :p

I have this ihome on my desk for quite some time. It is funny that it did not charge my 3G then it charged my iphone 4 and now my 4S. I am quite happy with it, only cost me $40 when i got it.

The model number is iH12B



At Home, i got this cool item from FYE on sale. It is an organizer that includes a dock. I do not have to use the USB cable as it comes with a charger.

Best $12 I ever spent on an accessory!

Best i could find online was $16.99..... well worth it!
