    Hum... Pros and cons on the dock for me.

    I heard someone saying it's beautiful and making your milestone as a clock on your desktop... It looks a perfect holder for Milestone when there no call...

    However, it will keep Milestone on dock mode displaying time on its screen... I am worry about the screen lifetime. And the cost is also a big issue... Why Motorola don't bundle this dock with every Milestone when they are sold out?

    I also like to turn the phone off at night. However, I found it impossible anymore when I know the alarm clock, that I mostly use as morning call, will also cease to run when the phone is off.

    Yeah, my last 3 phones all woke up if the alarm was due. Was suprised this didn't, luckily my old phone is still being used as an alarm. Battery life is vastly improved already, had it a week today, so may start charging at night.

    It really depends on how much you wanna pay for this function. Don't know price of Dock in HongKong. But I can tell that a magnet putting behind of Milestone can turn phone to Dock mode.
    So if you wanna a beautiful accessory and can take the price, go buy one.
    Or you get sth can put Milestone on it, then have a magnet in proper place, it's the dock-you-made!

    This is a system limitation of Android platform. All phones till now which based on Android platform can only have Alarm work while they are turned on.
    Hope Motorola or Google or other companies who work on Android phone can fix this out.
    But for me, it's not a problem coz I almost don't use Alarm clock at all. :D
