    So I asked for a multimedia dock for xmas, parents couldn't find one so I got a $30 gift card instead. Originally I was deadset on getting a multimedia dock but after seeing how easy it is to make my own (I'm thinking of an iHome manipulation) I'm beginning to wonder about a protective case. I don't have insurance and I'm growing increasingly worried about the safety of my phone. I don't want to make the phone too bulky but...

    Thoughts on the multimedia dock in general? How about protective cases? How much protection would a case really offer anyway?

    MM dock + get the insurance. There's no loop holes or anything. I've used it before to replace a Storm and it went through just fine. Next day shipping as well. And the replacement they sent me was new, had an issue, called them, sent ANOTHER replacement by next day air.

    Yea insurance is a MUST. Also I vote that you get the motorokr t505 if you're a driver. Its great for handsfree calling and listening to podcasts/music from pandora, iheartradio, etc. Its basically like satellite radio in your car!!

    Yea gotta go with insurance as well. I just got on verizon but sprint uses the same company for insurance and its pretty awesome, i replaced my winmo phones atleast like 5 times in the past 2 years, twice getting upgrades, its very worth it!

    I got the MM dock about a week ago and I gotta say I love it so far. It has pretty much replaced my alarm clock.

    1.) The MM Dock is that thing they have at verizon that the phone sits on correct? I thought that looked very cool because it turned into a full fledged alarm alarm clock looking thing.. does this also charge the battery while its sitting there? Are there other docks more attractive or something? i'd rather have it in a dock than just sitting on my desk. Would people recommend this from verizon?

    2.) I DO want something however that will charge an extra battery seperately, im not sure if ill find it though. if you know what im thinking of plz let me know where i can find it.

    I got a MM for Xmas and like it very much. Besides being a secured place to charge the phone, you could also listen to music with a timer, or see what the temperature is outside. The only thing is that even with the dimmer on, is a little bright.
