Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2008 7:16 AM (in response to neuroanatomist)Hi,
I can see the USB end of that cord working in the power plug, but the other end sure is not going to work with the iPhone end that plugs into the bottom of the iPhone.
Your desk must be very low and your outlet must be very high in the wall to be comfortable with the supplied cord. I cannot sit at my desk which is 10 " from the wall and sit in my chair and hold the phone to my ear without sliding my chair closer to the wall and leaning towards the wall. I've already pulled the phone out of my hands once.
ThanksWindows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2008 7:30 AM (in response to M.A)As I stated above, it's an EXTENSION cord, not a longer dock cable (there is no longer dock cable available). You connect the male end of the USB extension cord to the AC adapter, and connect the male end of your 3' dock cable to the female end of the USB extension cord.
Or, just get an AC extension cord. Or a powered USB hub for your desk. Or, just unplug the iPhone - it has a battery. Or, use a Bluetooth headset (which is what I do) - then you can get up and walk around.
So many options...17" CD MBP, iPhone 3G, iPodTouch, Mac OS X (10.4.11), since the ][e
Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2008 9:46 AM (in response to M.A)It is probably that length because a major use of the cord is to plug it into the USB port of your computer and then into the iphone. A long cord would be a royal pain.powerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.5.1), airport express, iphone, ipod, ipod touch
