    Been discussed many times. Motorala site says it comes with one, but in fact it does not

    I too read that it had a charge cable included. I went to the Verizon store to get one (cradle+cable for $30 isn't too bad), and asked if I could open the box. Sure enough, no cable.

    Nice job Motorola!

    Mine didn't come with one either. I'm using the ac adapter that came with the media dock plugged into a small APC inverter. The dc lighter adapters screw with the battery (slow charge vs fast charge).

    Does anyone have drop call issues when using the "official" car mount. Mine will drop calls anywhere from 10-30 seconds after getting a call. Everytime.

    Got mine from vzw too, no charger either, I emailed motorola suppport with a screenshot of where the website says it comes with one and they promptly sent me the charger. I think I got lucky on that one.

    I went ahead and took a screenshot of the website too. For Motorola to not include one when it's so clearly stated on the website is completely false advertising.
    I'll be doing the same when I purchase mine.

    Also, any luck finding the product on Amazon? I've found the multimedia dock, no car mount though...

    Too late on taking the screenshot. VZW has updated their site. No mention of car charger now. :dry:

    The site is location based. You have to provide your zip, or city/state before proceeding. My area shows no mention of car charger. Your site is obviously different. We probably have different promos running too.

    Yes they both come with chargers. I bit the bullet and bought both of them. It does pay to get a employee discount on them..:icon_ banana:
