    dvm, I don't know what to say. I checked Saturday and it wasn't blocked as you usually was and it let me order it. Got an email back from Verizon which said it was shipping Monday. They took my CC, so I hope they do what they said. The deal at Sears looks pretty good.

    That what I got until I clicked on "check compatibility" then it all worked. It was $22.99(sign in for this price) free shipping:)
    EDIT: just checked and it looks like they're in stock.

    Yup. Bought my second one at 18:10 US Central time. Now all I have to do is go out and get a cable with AC on one end and micro USB on the other. Any suggestions on where to go aside from the usual places?

    Maybe I am not holding my mouth right, I still can't get it using the above suggestions on the verizon site. But I did order it from Sears, so thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Slight problem with cradle charging. When placed in cradle the clock is shown. It's bright in a darkened bedroom even when you lower the intensity. How do I eliminate the clock and show only the black screen, but it still charges? Thanks

    I don't know. Hang a sock on it. Seriously, don't think it's possible. Maybe rooted tho?
    I don't like charging over nite cause it only takes a couple hours if almost dead and then it sits for hours on the cradle. I have cradles all over the house so plopping it in one when I come in usually works for me.;)

    I had bad results trying to order from the Sears link. Not recommended. I have finally cancelled the order (I think, we'll see) and have successfully ordered from Verizon.

    I got two cradles, one from Verizon, and one from Sears. Received both in a timely fashion.

    I'll keep one at home, the other in the car/at work. So glad I got these.

    Does anyone know if the docking cradle will work with the Body Glove case?

    I don't have a case, naked all the way, but I seriously doubt it would work with anycase as it needs to click into place and any case that touches the sides would prevent this. This phone don't need no stinkin' case, it's rugged.;)

    Skinomi.com sells skins for our phone that will provide some protection and still allow you to use the cradle. The only choices they currently have are clear(aka naked), silver or black carbon fiber and woodgrain(for the oldschool woody look). All come with a screen protector that fits the entire screen not just the display area. I currently have the black carbon fiber. :)

    I got one of these cradles off eBay for $20 shipped... Good deal. Wish i would have bought two of them now, the seller had six of them, i bought one and the rest were sold in a matter of hours.

    Seems as if they are a high demand item!

    I got mine a few days ago, put it on the nightstand, i like it! I use my phone as my alarm clock so its perfect having it in the cradle. After you put it in the cradle tap the brightness setting in the lower left corner of the screen, it will dim down right away and then after about twenty mins or so, haven't really timed it, it makes a click sound and dims even lower.

    Oh i did find out that if you have your screen brightness set to anything but Auto that it won't dim right in the cradle. I set mine to full brightness one day playing around with it and that night in the cradle it wouldn't dim. Finally figured out it was the brightness setting.
