ya i don't know why people are complaining... The phone will come with one cord and knockoffs will be a dime a dozen. The 30 pin cords were relatively expensive when the first 2G came out too, and now I have over 5 of them. Haters just love to hate.


Owning an iPhone is like owning a BMW; some people think it's worth it, others don't and buy an Android. Some people see the elegance, style, and attention to detail of a BMW, others don't and buy a Kia.

Can't we all just get along? lol

Between owning 4 iphones and a couple ipods, I have tons of the 30 pin cords, I literally gave 3 of them away in the past two weeks, now they are useless, not to mention I will have to buy an adapter to use my phone in my truck now.

I loved this phone! I still have it and works to this day haha.

This is a dumb arguement. Yes, I'd say they are smaller but the fat person is also likely taller/wider/deeper (pick one, two, or all) than a skinny person.

Simply because the article doesn't explain it does not negate that it's still a fact. Are you fresh out of junior college?

I'm not on the hunt for a good iPod/Phone dock w/speakers to use with my old 4. They should be on super clearance here soon.

You shouldn't call people dumb, it's not nice.

It's a perfectly good statement, I wasn't trying to argue, hince the "LOL" after.

The fact that you used "deeper" to describe a person really gets me horny.

Those 30 pin cords you have aren't completely useless. You could still use them for your older devices like your 2 ipods.

As for my car, fortunately my phone connects with the headunit via Bluetooth so no cables needed there and I'm using my old iPod Video for my songs and videos so I'll still be able to use the existing 30 pin cable with no adapter.

Not sure if you all saw this in regards to the new Lightning adapters and how they don't support "iPod out"...
