    Universal dock adapters that fit the iPhone 4 + bumper?

    Since the bumper/case is now basically required for some (antenna issue), is there a dock adapter made to fit with the bumper on?

    I forgot about my order for the standard adapters and they arrived this morning. No shock but they aren't even close to allowing a bumpered iPhone to fit.

    Anyone have any older, larger adapters that you can try to see if they work? Something like the classics?

    Thanks

    I've got tons of adapters (somewhere) but no bumpers. But that's a good idea, I'm sure there's one of the adapters that would work fine.

    The 80GB iPod Classic / iPod 5th Gen 30GB adapter fits the case perfectly and it stands up snugly, however the extra thickness from the bottom of the case around the connector makes it not actually make the connection to the pins (just barely). I guess if you cut out the bottom of the dock adapter it would work. It just barely doesn't get down far enough into the dock.

    I agree with Big C Style's test. I tried the phone with the bumper in my universal dock with my IPOD 3rd Gen adapter and due to the thickness of the bumper on the bottom, the dock will not make a connection to the IPHONE 4.

    what if you just took the adapter out? I have 2 universal docks...never used adapters for my ipod or 3G, so I'm wondering if it would fit without one.

    It works if you don't use an adapter but it would most likely stress the phone's connector due to lack of support while standing up at that angle. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll break but it isn't ideal.

    I dock mine in the universal dock with no insert. Phone fits PERFECT even with my iFrogz case on it. Did the same thing wigh my Logitech alarm clock radio. Just take out the adaptors and it fits perfect with the case and all.

    Yeah, I found the same problem tonight. I cut down one of the adapters to allow the iphone to fit but found the thickness of the bumper plus the thickness of the adapter didn't allow the phone to sit low enough and connect. I am going to just go without an adapter, if anything the dock plugin will break before the iphone port, right? lol

    I actually cut my hand cutting down an adapter. I decided to save my fingers and purchased a dock extender for the iPhone with bumper at gadgetboost.com and am happy to report that it works and I still have all of my fingers

    LYCO Adapter - Universal dock adapter for iPhone 4

    I finally found the solution to docking my iPhone 4 with a case still on. I found the LYCO Adapter at www.synthecept.com. It looks like they also just came out with a short video showing the LCYO working with an iPhone 3G which can be seen here. Very happy now that I can dock my phone properly!!!
