Ditto.

Nevermind. I just went to their website to order a 2nd one for my desk, and they are out of stock. I guess, order from Verizon as above with the discount.

How did you do that? Is that just the deal they are offering, or did you have a promotional code or something?

I get the 25% VIP discount. Not sure why they give it to me .. If not for that I would also qualify for 25% discount because I have corporate discount. They always offer the VIP discount first.

I had an odd issue with one of mine. I ordered two - one for desk and one for home. I put mine in to charge at home, it switched into bedside mode, but the next morning the battery was not charged - it was exactly where it was the night before. I tried a different USB charger with it, and no dice. I brought the work cradle home and plugged it in to the charger and all was fine.

Looks like a defective dock!

Oh well...

Will it ring while in the cradle as well so a call is not missed? I've read about it going into sleep mode or bedside mode when put in the cradle, but can that setting be changed?

Thanks,

Thanks,
I know that the "bedside" mode can be changed by hitting the BB button then "exit bedside mode". Your phone will still ring in "bedside" mode, I just tried it. I'm sure it will also still ring while in the cradle too...
