    Of course not. The commuter has no holes for the charging contacts.

    Actually, I don't think that the way the charging dock is built allows for any kind of case - it's so much more shallow than the one my husband got for his 9000. I always put it waaaay back on the counter because I'm afraid it will pop off and drop.

    Is anyone able to use any case with the 9700 charging dock? which one?

    Seido makes a charging pod that works with their Innocases. If the aftermarket case leaves the charging contacts open it might work with the Seido pod.

    The only type of case that will work would be the case-mate smooth case or any other type of case like that. They are two halves a top and bottom this lets you slip the bottom part off to put in the charge pod. Here is a link to that case and note how the bottom 1/3 comes off for the dock. I use this very case for my IPhone 3Gs see pic below.

    One of the reason I would never use a case like this. It is personal preference but I hate any case that stays on the phone while using it!

    Just use your phone, naked! Enjoy!

    yes, but I'm so afraid of scratching my baby!!!!
    I haven't bought a case for it since I bought it other than what it came with. But i read so much about screen protectors and cases and the more I use the pod the more afraid that it will be knocked out and scratched....

    I bought a seidio innocase 2 with a seidio charging pod... Works like a charm, that's the only reason why I chose seidio over case mate or otterbow

    Check out taobao. All these products are made in china anyways.

    I just ordered the innocase last night from amazon for around 22 shipped.
