This should hopefully be a simple question: is the cable inside DK32 same as in DK30 and DK31?
I'm looking at buying the Z1 compact, but I need to be able to charge it without using the dock or opening the plugs/covers. I'm not taking the risk of using Real Fake cables from ebay, so the only option for me is to use the one from a stripped dock.
There are a lot of websites describing how easy it is to remove the EC21 cable from the DK30 and DK31, and a lot of separate websites reckoning that the cable inside the DK32 is the same. However, I have googled hard and have not found one directly stating that:
EITHER the cable inside DK30, DK31 and DK32 is all the same EC21 and therefore it doesn't matter which dock I buy and strip
OR the cable inside the DK32 is different, but it is just as easy to remove without damaging the cable (I don't mind smashing the dock, I won't use it)
While I'm here, it would also be good to hear people's experiences of using the Z1 or Z1 compact in the rain. Is it actually any better than all the other touch screen phones? Or does it start playing up as soon as it has two raindrops on it? I work outdoors and live in the UK, where it basically rains most of the time you need to do something on your phone outside!
