Besides the ridiculously priced Apple brand dock, who has used or has some good leads on some desktop docks for the 3G ... ones that won't give the dreaded "this accessory was not made for iPhone".

If you can, post what kind of dock it is, and where you got it from. With the 3G being somewhat new, it's sorta hard to tell which docks are going to work with it. I've seen some chargers (not docks) that worked with the original iPhone but are a no go with the 3G.

I bought the iP99BR at the Apple store for $150. It works like a charm with no GSM buzz or interference.

When you dock it, it does say that this accessory is not compatible, would you like to put in airplane mode. I just press no and everything works fine. I emailed iHome about it and they said that they are working with Apple to make sure that the message does not get displayed in future firmware updates.

I am not sure if this will work with the iHome because I don't know if they use the universal dock system: Click here

Take the dock adapter off of your iHome and make sure that your 3G works with it, since many of the older accessories use the older Firewire charging pins and may not charge your new phone.

NINE dollars? Apple, Apple, Apple...dock adapters came FREE with iPods! I'll go call up iHome, because I received mine on Christmas.

The $9 doesn't even include shipping, so you'll probably be even more pissed...

True. It must be "quality" plastic. Lets just hope it doesn't crack.
