    I got mine in the mail today. Keepin it on my desk at work. Its a nice supplement to my extra (work) battery with charger lol. $6 + $5 shipping can't go wrong. Love the Bold but hate the battery. I also have an extra battery with charger @ home. I normally swap batteries @ 8am, 12pm, 4pm, 8pm, 12am Hopefully RIM fixes this with the magnum.

    My Pod arrived today in the mail!

    I got my OEM Bold charging pod today in the mail! Wow, I love it! My Bold is now safely charging in the Pod, while showing me the time as a bedside clock. I am really happy with it.

    When in the cradle, try Bedside Mode - Turn off the radio and/or turn off the flashing LED and show a clock only on the display without lit trackball and keys. Very nice when you have it by your bed and you're trying to sleep...

    Now that I've got the dock, I leave the Bold standing in there, showing the time when I get home. Before going to bed, I enter it in the bedside mode, so I have a night clock.
    My question is, keeping the clock showing the whole night - will it damage (burn) the LCD screen? Perhaps a 'floating clock' should have been provided...
    Any responses?

    I don't think it should damage the screen as the clock is very dim. Honestly, I think the overuse of BBs would be the first cause of damage versus the bedside mode clock.

    I've had this dock since January and I love it. I actually have 2. One for home and one for work. I'm a store manager at at&t and the dock helps me sale the Bold w/ ease in conjunction with different cool themes. Our Blackberry rep gave me one for being the top Blackberry seller in our district (I have a biased opinion of phones lol) and the second one I bought one on ebay for like $15. I love it

    Gotta chime in here too and share my love of this inexpensive, but absolutely essential accessory for the Bold.
    I have 2 of them - one at my bedside and one on my desk in my Home Office. Bedside mode is great, absolutely love using my Bold as a sweet-looking alarm clock and it is the first thing I reach for when I roll out of bed in the morning!
    My Wife was so jealous, she made me buy one for her BB Pearl Flip!
    The only complaint I have is that it is far too easy to tip my Bold out - wish there was a simple lock or the fit was a little tighter.
    Other than that - sweet little accessory.

    No NOTHING inserts into the bb. The charging pads are on the side, the small metal "divets" it simply touches when you place the BOLD into the cradle. nothing fancy! extremely convenient!

    I've had one of these for a while now and as much as i love it i'm still thinking about getting a after market charger that can charge an extra battery too. Premium Multi Function Cradle for Blackberry Bold 9000
    this one can charge the phone an extra battery and can be used for data transfer. the only downside is that it uses the usb port on the side.

    well i saw one of the multi function ones i posted above. its feels like cheap plastic in comparison to my real bold charging pod. however it holds the phone much more securley. i'm going to stick with my real one for now. myabe just get a secondary battery charger.
