    Just a heads up for the more frugal members here. Rather than spend $30 for a new dock I just picked up one an original iPhone dock off eBay for $5 with free shipping. Good deal if you ask me.

    Pretty cool.

    I'm surprised Apple didn't make it incompatible and force us to buy a new one.

    I was extremely surprised today to find that my car dock worked with my new iPhone 4. Kudos, generic FM transmitter / charger company and Apple.

    My dock works just fine... but my phone did popup a message saying that the dock wasn't optimized for it and could cause some noise distortion. No issues ever came up though.

    My dock designed for the 3G says that too, even though I have a 3G . :/

    Now that you mention it, I saw that same issue with an iHome and my phone today. As you said, no issues, but I didn't get any calls or texts.
