    Guys/Gals,

    I love the idea of using a docking station with my Bold 9700, but I also currently use a skin that I've gotten pretty used to. Mine isn't the silicon type, it's a bit more plasticky (got it from AT&T) and a little tougher to remove.

    Do those of you who use a docking station just use your device naked most of the time? Or perhaps you use the holster.

    Not sure I'm crazy about having to take the skin off every day to use a docking station.

    I holster my device and use a charging dock. The dock is a must for me, I have 2, one in my living room and on my nightstand by my bed...

    If it's a 9700 it most likely won't fit in the dock with the type of skin you're referring
    to. Even if it's thinner than a silicone kind.

    Hey Phill!!!!!

    I may just have to change my ways and try the dock out! Such a cool accessory!

    So are you loving the 9780?? Still trying to decide if I should go for it or stick with my 9700 until the supposed Bold Touch arrives perhaps next year!?

    Thanks....love the idea of getting rid of my old alarm clock too!

    True...I'd have to forgo the skin I'm using

    I have a couple of case that I use when I am up and about. I have charging pods
    everywhere (desk at home, at work, parents house, sisters house, etc) except for
    wherever I sleep.

    When I am stationary I just take the phone out of the case.

    You need a charging dock Karis, it's the must have BB accessory!

    I'm loving the 9780 thanks... it goes well with the 39mm Explorer

    Cool, so these pods are pretty popular!

    The BlackBerry is a fantastic alarm clock, I have not used a regular alarm clock in a few years. Once you use the dock, you will always use one with future BlackBerry's. Everytime I get a new BlackBerry, that is the first thing I buy...

    I wish I'd thought about it earlier....have had my Bold for close to a year! Oh well, better late than never!

    Thanks again for everyone's responses!

    I keep her naked... I just love the way the phone looks so I don't dare cover it up. I use the holster as well.

    I dock my Storm2 at night even though I use an Otter Box Commuter series case. It is the case that has a rubber skin and a hard plastic piece that attaches over the rubber skin. It is their case in between the plain skin and the Defender series.

    I thought it was going to be a pain at first but I am used to taking it off each night now before charging it in the cradle and it isn't really that big of a deal. I really prefer the grip of the rubber skin in my hand but also love the hard plastic piece that makes getting my 9550 in and out of pants pockets so much easier. I will admit that the Storm2 really is a great looking device naked though. I just don't trust myself to hold on to it without a case on it. The Otter Box Commuter case has already saved my Blackberry multiple times.

    Thanks for the great responses.

    I took my skin off last night and started using my holster again today to see how it goes. What's SO weird is how small my Bold suddenly feels without the skin. The skin is fairly thin and doesn't really add 'bulk' per say, but there is a difference. My phone feels slippery. Looks better though naked!
