    Hi All,

    I have the Verizon hard plastic case. Do you think the unit will go down into the charger?

    I would imagine it would, because it looks like it has an opening at the bottom for it.

    Nope. Needs to be a naked blackberry. I have a thin rubber skin that I have to take off. It's also is charged on the backplate where the 2 metal prongs are located next to the battery door.

    That kind of ticked me off. I specifically got the hard plastic case so the battery door wouldn't wobble.

    the good thing about the storm dock was that it charged it AND let it connect via usb at the same time

    Will take forever to charge, and if you're using the phone while its charging, its gonna drain more battery than its actually charging.

    I just had the ultra-thin GadgetGuard (Invisi-shield-like) clear shield put on the phone for that reason and will not use a case. Even then, I had to remove the middle panel from the battery door because it was preventing the phone from charging easily from the charging posts. That cradle is rather demanding.

    The cradle is made to conform the phone. I just drop mine right in there every night. The sleeves will prevent the contacts from making contact even if you did squeeze it into the cradle. The rubber sleeve I use still allows me to use the plug in charger and usb coupling.
