How can I dock (to charge, listen to music etc) my iphone 3 if it has a protective case on it (without taking the case off).

I want to charge my iphone 3 which is currently in an otterbox protective case by placing it in a docking station. The protective case gets in the way, though. Is there any way to do this without using a cable connection. I like the convenience of just placing it on the docking station like I do with my ipod touch.

Thanks

    You can't, depending on the case and or what you are docking it to. Some docking stations have an extend port so it can fit with a case on, but not all do. I would look at the box of whatever you plan on purchasing to see what it does and doesn't support. Also if you have something like a Mophie case you can't because it blocks the port. That's why I prefer a bluetooth speaker or something like that so I don't have to mess with the case and stuff.
