Why is my official 3G dock telling me it's not compatible with my iPhone?

    I bought the dock straight from Apple's online store, and I'm happy with it, it works just fine. But over the last few days, sometimes when I plug it in it tells me THIS DEVICE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE IPHONE 3G and asks me if I want to put it into Airplane mode. NO I DON'T.

    Like... what the hell is going on? This is the new dock made JUST FOR the iPhone 3G. It doesn't do it all the time-- but it should NEVER be doing it.

    Any ideas why? I'm on 2.0.2, and don't have any problems at all with my iPhone other than a kind of pushed-in-on-one-side sleep button.

    Get some Air Guster or clean out the dock connector with some compressed air. That should do it, but if it doesn't, go ahead and get it exchanged with the Apple Store.
