is buying that dock even worth it? i mean, why not just connect it to the USB cable? What are the advantages of the dock?

It doesn't lie flat on the table or desk or wherever you are...and its just kind of cooler than having it just plugged in.. Thats all I know of for advantages...

Don't know really. I just posted this since some people looove the dock. I personally don't care if I have it or not. Yes, you can just use the USB cable that comes with the phone. Maybe someone that owns a V1 AND has a dock can chime in and explain the advantages. I can only think of one disadvantage: You couldn't dock it if it has a case.

I liked the fact that the v1 came with the dock. The fact that the iPhone 3G doesn't is a bit disappointing but I never use the dock anymore anyway.

You can answer the iPhone 3G while it's docked and if you put it on speakerphone it helps to have it upright in a dock.

I like the dock because it is easier to just plug it in and pull it out. I don't really know how else to describe why i like it better, and why i am spending the extra 30 bucks on it but i know i like it better than the cable and i am glad they have something like this but i wish it would come with the iPhone 3G like the last one did =[

I've answered calls when it was still in the dock. You can hit the speakerphone button and talk that way also. I like having the dock because I use my iPhone as a double check on my alarm and I have it on my nightstand so it is pretty convenient to have it sitting upright.

Okay, I wasn't sure about the v1... didn't want to spread misinformation. :laugh2:

An Apple rep confirmed that the universal dock does work for the iPhone 3G as well. Take this like all the "rumors" with a grain of salt.
