Has anyone purchased the official dock for this phone? I was wondering if it is worth $49.99 from T-mobile.

I have. It's extremely great quality. You're paying for one of the sturdiest docks ever.

It's definitely expensive, but it's definitely high end quality.

I bought one when I bought my phone about 2 weeks ago, but returned it a couple days later. Sure, it's a sturdy, but it doesn't have any dock functionality. To me, it's a glorified plug. It doesn't trigger anything on your phone that plugging in a charger doesn't.

Totally not worth the $50 to me. I ended up making my own "dock" with an old credit card, cardboard, and duct tape.

I think he's referring to the car dock.

Oh, if so, my bad. I figured most car docks are universal, and I spent $50 on the desktop one.

I can't seem to post links to external sites since I haven't posted enough, so forgive the formatting, but the image can be found here: goo [dot] gl [forward slash] TRgvi

That picture was taken last week. It has more duct tape to smooth out the edges and make it "prettier" and more sturdy. I think found the "make a credit card a phone dock" on Lifehacker or something. It worked great for landscape, but putting the phone in the dock in portrait made it tip over, so the cardboard was added for stability.
