As part of Verizon's 50 dollars off a moto accessory, I picked up the low level (without the USB) docking station for 10 bucks together with my phone. I wanted to use this as a alarm clock/hook some speakers up to it to stream pandora. I was dissappointed to find out that even after taking the plastic cover off the station I still can't connect the phone to the station while it's on my Otterbox Commuter case. The hard plastic shell on the case makes contact with the mounting arm before the USB can get completely plugged in.
So my question for you guys, what's my best option here?
1. Is there another nice case that can work with the docking station? Preferably one that's a little more solid then just a neoprin sleeve.
2. Is there any kind of little extension connection you can buy for the dock? I have found them for the I phone but can't find anything for the razr. I would just need to make the Micro USB plug 1/4" longer so it can plug in all the way without hitting the case.
3. Has anyone had any success trimming down the mounting arm of the dock so that it doesn't catch the case?
4. Am I better off just throwing this dock on ebay for ~25 bucks and getting another dock? Any recommendations? I've tried looking around but the web is swamped with docks for iphones, it's hard to find one that will match the razr
