    With my original Droid I had a car charger, windshield mount, and docking station. I'm indecisive on what I want now for my new phone. I'm so bad at making decisions. I got the purple silicon case when I ordered my phone. I could kick myself for not getting screen protectors and a car charger. I like the idea of the Otterbox, but just wish they had more color choices besides black.

    What do you have or are you planning on getting for your phone?

    I have a checkerboard gel case. They come in a lot of difference colors. Got it at the Mesa, Az flea market for 8 bucks. 4.95 for a screen protector. I think Amazon has the cases. Chris

    The car charger from your OG Droid should work on your Rezound. It looks different from your HTC plug but will work.

    I got the silicone case with my Rezound and it works great. It won't slide out of my hand and I haven't dropped the phone yet in five months. As far as a "car dock", I'd suggest just getting a generic holder that squeezes the phone at the sides, being sure that the charging port is clear. You can put the phone most anywhere in the vehicle, it does not have to be against the windshield to get a good GPS signal for providing directions.

    The car "dock" that I have slots into my now defunct CD player and holds on for dear life. I love the thing.

    I don't have a Rezound, but I recommend just getting a universal car mount. That way you save yourself some money whenever you upgrade. Also, I suggest getting a charge-only USB cable and a cigarette-lighter USB charge port that puts out like 1A. That way your phone charges like it's on an AC adapter instead of the slower, less powerful USB charge.

    Thanks! I never even thought to check. My home charger works as well, so I can at least put that money into a car mount/or dock.

    Do you have a link to something like this? I'm wondering if that is what I have now? My Droid charger plugs into the "cigarette lighter" port (hehe, isn't that funny? I haven't thought about those ports being called that in years!).

    I have been looking at Universal Mounts. I found two at Walmart, one is a windshield mount, and the other is a vent mount.

    This is the mount I have: Ppyple Smartphone Car Dashboard Mount | Overstock.com
    The base is sticky and can either suction cup mount to the windshield or your dashboard. I have mine on the windshield and it's very solid.

    The charge-only USB cable: Amazon.com: Naztech Micro USB Charging Cable - BlackBerry, Cal-Comp, HTC, LG, Samsung, Nokia, and Sony Ericsson: Cell Phones & Accessories
    It's like 4 feet long so it can reach most places in your car.

    USB charging adapter: Amazon.com: Griffin Powerjolt Dual Universal USB Micro: MP3 Players & Accessories
    It's a low profile one, so it won't stick out half a mile from your port, plus it can charge two devices at once. I bought two of the charge cables in case a passenger wants to charge too.

    You would definitely be able to use your Droid's car charger with the Rezound. I can't remember what kind of power it puts out - when you connect it to your Rezound does it say USB or AC charging in your battery stats?

    I bought one of those Griffin chargers and it didn't work. Heck, I couldn't even tell it had made all the contacts(no indicator light)

    *shrugs* Mine works. Maybe you got a defective one, or it just doesn't fit right in your port.
