Ok I feel really dumb but what exactly is the dock connector? What does it do? I read that it charges the phone when its on the computer but I never have my phone on it and it still charges...Im so confused :oops:

theres never a silly question! the dock as I understand it is simply when you stand your iPhone when connected to your computer. the little white box that stands your iPhone/ipd up. thats it......i think. I don't think you need to dock your iPhone, i never do, its just handy for it to stand up

That, as well as a few other things. It can be plugged into the wall as well as the computer. You can aslo receive a better sound and volume when listening to music while the phone is in the Dock, and when it's in, you can insert an audio cord into the audio out jack on the back to record the audio on your iPhone via GarageBand or similar apps.

Cool didn't know that. Also don't know what I'd do it for but you never know. Thanks

Yeah. I usually only use it for recording and charging by my bed. When I sync it, I just plug it into the USB plugged into the Mac.
