    I must admit, Apple do sometimes overprice their products.
    Like the USB-Dock cable for $19.99, where as i can go to iGearUSA and get the same cable [Black or white] for $7.99

    So most of the time i buy my accessories from iGearUSA and SmartPhoneExperts
    YOU?

    Exactly.
    Quality, great prices and fast shipping.
    Try $1.58 for the wire and $2.16 for the wall plug.

    Yeah...amazon and eBay. You can find cases and screen protectors for literally under a dollar. I kept seeing that "Wow Cases" ad here on MacRumors, so I bought a white case for my iPhone 4 for about $12.00. Still waiting for it to arrive.

    Wireless emporium on eBay for OEM apple sync cables. $4.99 with free shipping. I have 2 of them and they are definitely OEM apple cables that work with the bumper. :apple:

    Amazon, Ebay and etc.
    It depends on what you are trying to buy. What are you trying to buy?

    Amazon.com for most. Some of identical items (especially headphones) are significantly cheaper.

    Apple mostly. I ordered a case for my 3GS yesterday from Apple simply because they can get it to me faster than iskin.com can. I've gone to BestBuy for some things as well.

    I don't always go by price, I go by shipping times also.

    A few weeks ago, I was going to buy a 8Gb 3GS from Apple but they didn't offer overnight on that phone. I went right over to AT&T and ordered it and got it the next day with free shipping.

    I like getting things very fast. :)

    monoprice

    But I bought a bunch of accessories ie cables and cigarette lighter adapters from www.hdaccessory.com

    I bought their products for my 3g and haven't had a problem yet with any for the i4.

    Great value IMO

    Dealextreme. Just ordered five USB cables and three power adaptors that look exactly like Apple's for $15. Also, eBay. I bought a full iPhone 4 silicon case for 99 cents and a silicon bumper case for 65 cents. Gotta love China.
