    I want to get one of the free cases but I am concerned because I use a dock and plan to buy a stereo in the future with a dock.

    Which is the free cases will work with the typical "made for ipod" dock without the adapter insert or having to take the case off? I can't use the insert anyway because I also own a classic which I use as well, I also dont want to wear the case out by taking it off all the time.

    thank you.

    You need to have an iPhone 4.

    And, if it supports ALL ipods, then it should work.

    I have the iphone already, but I am yet to place the order from the app.

    I know the "made for iPod" should mean it works (although not perfectly for example on my charger/speaker dock it doesn't fit properly since it rocks slightly (don't have an attachment for it) but my touch 2g and classic fit perfectly.

    I need to know though about what cases can allow me to use a dock without the attachment and/or taking the case off.

    ok thanks, that's solves my issue, I was concerned because some of the reviews said that the bumpers wouldn't work with the docks, but I guess they were using the attachments then.

    Now I just need to decide on what case.

    I have another question but I don't want to spam the forum.

    I ordered the pixelskin HD but I was wondering whether it was also worth getting a screen protector?

    Yup, pretty much the only way to use a case with a dock. Unless the case you ordered the case comes with a custom made dock to fit the iPod with the case.


    Really, no matter what case, you should really get a shield for protection (scratches, finger prints, etc.). But most cases come with a shield of some sort, So it shouldn't really be necessary for you to buy one unless you know the case didn't bring one.
