I need a new alarm clock and would like to get one with an ipod dock that i could use my iPhone with any suggestions. I am able to turn edge off so im not worried about that.I just want one that will charge and play my music.
I tested the Ihome in the Apple store. Although it charges the iPhone and works, it askes to go into airplane mode. If its fully compatible it should not ask to do that. Not sure if anything would happen, but I did have a friend fry her iPhone in a dock that was from an older ipod. She didn't put it in airplane mode when it asked and got a call, her iPhone went nuts. Fortunetly after a reset it still works, but its never been right since. Constantly having issues with it.
I have the iHome iH5 (the original model) and I was concerned about docking my iPhone with it so I contacted iHome. They said the iH5 has firewire charging which is 15 volts. It is my understanding that this could damage the iPhone.
I bought an ihome yesterday and when I plug the iPhone into the dock (which I don't recommend because it doesn't come with an iPhone cradle and you shouldn't support the weight of the phone purely on the connector).
But either way, when I plugged in the iPhone it freaked out the ihome and the ihome reset itself, and lost the time. It works ok, like playing music and stuff, but every time I plug in the iPhone i have to reset the clock. Is there a way to fix that? I was going to return the ihome.
Inside the box they had an ad for one that has bluetooth and everything where you dock the phone far away from the stereo (avoiding the buzzing noise). Anyone try that one?
hey, i found an iPhone/ipod alarm dock on facebook market place, and i got one and it works great! - i'll post up the link and let you guys see it, the person i dealt with was super friendly and helpful...
but this dock is a brand i've never heard of but the machine looks really slick, it has a remote control that has a sleep button and snooze button, the dock itself has a sd card slot, a usb thingy, aux in etc, you'll see more of the specs on the ad.. the best thing about this is it charges the iPhone 3g.. it does say its incompatible but when the phone rings, or txt or email the music stops and it comes out of the speakers of the dock... and it charges... so it works very well with it, i highly recommend this product.. i've tried to find one of these and it took me SO long to find one that charges the iPhone... so take a look! its the best bang for the buck!
