    I bought two of them...

    I love how great it looks with the Storm sitting in the cradle on my office desk. Nice show-off piece =].

    Very convenient, displays the Storm like a desk clock will charging.

    With the Invisible Shield installed, it's very tight. Still fits but snug.

    They are great. It will not fit in the charging pod with the cover on it.

    Also, if you answer the phone while in cradle it'll automatically enable the speakerphone.

    thanks guys. Does it come with a cable or do I need to buy another one like the one that came with the phone? I'd have it on my desk at work. The original cable would stay at my house.

    I love the cradle so far....it is somewhat heavy and sturdy, and has rubber on the bottom so it doesn't slide around. Definitely the best "cradle" for a phone that I've ever had.

    Side note.....my store didn't have any in stock, so they overnighted it via FedEx for free. Gotta love that.

    The major advantage of the cradle (I have one for both my 8310 and my 8100) is that you do not have to do your daily charge via the horrid little USB connector.

    The USB connector inside the phone is quite fragile on all models and anything that reduces its use is a very good thing. IMO it should have been inside the box.

    If the USB connector on the phone breaks, it costs $79 here BBrepairshop.com - BlackBerry Repair Services for BlackBerry 8800 & 8830. Yes, I know its not for the Storm. These guys fixed my phone when it needed specialist hardware repair and they did a good job.

    Based on the above, the cradle seems like a good deal.

    I've got two, one for my home desk and one on my nightstand. Thinking about getting a third for the office. It's a great place to give the Storm a "home" when it's not in your hand, a holster or a sleeve. It also allowed me to clear away the clock on my side of the bed (where I used to have both a clock and a charger taking up space) and on my desk.

    OK so this is what I'm looking for. I have a power cord and a usb that came with the phone. Power cord for home, usb and dock for work to sync.. I wont need to buy another cable to use a dock to charge and sync, right? Sorry for sounding dumb. I just switched from a nextel phone. You couldnt charge the phone via usb. 2 cables did 2 diff functions. thanks.

    You can charge and sync with the micro USB cable that came with your Storm.

    My coworkers love the clock setting when my Storm is in the cradle, especially the old school flip clock setting. I have to remind them that my "clock" also does email and works as a phone.
