    I've been wanting to get one of these for a while now.
    It was originally $30 through verizon. Now it $20 through verizon.
    But I found it on Amazon for $6.99. It's worth $6.99

    No sadly it is just a media/charging dock. It makes watching movies easier though. I have one and I don't use it much anymore don't know why though.

    I paid full price for mine when I first got my Ally, and I use it every night. It's beside my bed, and I just snap my phone into it when I go to bed. It charges while letting me use the phone as clock/alarm/music player/sleep sound player.

    Is there a recessed area for the USB cover to fit into when the phone slides into the dock?

    yes there is....
    plenty of room for the door flap, plus it is real easy to put the phone in and take it out.
    i wouldn't mind getting another.. one for the office one for home
    but like I said originally... at 6.99 its cool

    I got mine in the mail today. Maybe I misunderstood, but shouldn't it come with a charger if its title is:

    Mine came with just the dock, in a ziplock bag. What did the rest of you receive?

    I'm not saying it's a bad deal for $7 (or $5), but it's not what I expected.

    $5 is extremely cheap for a brand name tech object. All i recived was was the dock itself in a bad, but it was well worth the purchase!

    It's intended to be used with the USB cable and either the AC adapter end or a PC. It's just a convenient way of popping your phone on the charger and using it as a clock or music device. I use mine with the app "Relax and Sleep" and it works great for that.

    I agree that it's a good deal even without the charger. For some reason they have the item listed in their catalog twice: once with no description other than a repeat of the item title, and another time where the description clearly indicates that the charger is not included. The title of the second item is "OEM LG Ally VS740 Multi-media Docking Station", which is what the packing list indicates they shipped me.

    Mine had an expected delivery date of March 25.

    I got home today, and it was already waiting in my mailbox.

    I almost bought one of these for full price when I got the phone, and I'm definitely glad I waited! Hahaha, great buy, even it it doesn't come with a USB cable. There's really no need for another though, just about everything I've bought recently uses Micro USB... Must be the new standard.

    Gah, be warned this dock is NOT compatible with the high-cap battery.

    Maybe I can dremel it...
