    Has anyone built a lego dock for there Sprint HTC Hero? I have a prototype in process now. It looks pretty good so far. Of course I didn't have enough of one color bricks to build the whole thing so I am going to paint it all black when I'm done. The kids won't miss these. LOL I also plan on a Down Angle USB Mini-B Cables down angle mini usb to dock onto and run out the back to a HTC Stereo headset converter plus (11pins to 3.5mm Stereo Head jack converter, miniUSB adapter for charging & miniUSB Headset) ExtUSB cable so I can connect a 3.5mm speaker cable, and a mini usb charging/sync cable. Should be pretty nice when I'm done as long as the cables support the audio and charging in one cable as they should.

    Where did you get that cradle? It looks like the Hero would fit perfectly in it.

    Very helpful. No more legos. Thank you. The shape of the My Touch 3g cradle looks almost identical to the shape of the Sprint Hero. I can't find it on Best Buy's site still, but the other site is most helpful.

    most htc phones have the same charging port and place and both are rounded at the bottom so it does work perfect

    I hope you can simply connect the 3.5 and the usb into the back and dock the phone and it'll have the ability to play music, charge, and/or sync without having to plug the 3.5 into the top of the phone.

    I have the same MY dock and it does not synch with my PC. It will charge from the PC, but no synch option. Also really have to push it down to get the headphones to recognize.

    I have two and they both have the same problem.

    I am lost, does yours work to synch with the comp? Or are you saying you just use a cable for pc synch?

    I really want to put one in my car, but if I hit a bump and the headphones cut out it won't work.
