    Where do you live and what carrier you want?

    Edit/ never mind, any way, for now the car dock is about it. Oh, and a protective case. The Atrix is the best phone on AT&T right now.

    It depends on how much you are planning to hook up your phone to a TV whether or not it's worth the $50. The Atrix comes with a HDMI cable to plug your phone directly into your HDTV. Won't have all the bells and whistles without a hack, but is enough for some people.

    I have the standard dock and it sits on my desk, making it convenient for charging. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't bother with it. I don't have a need for the multimedia, but if you plan on streaming videos to your HDMI monitor, then it's worth it, I guess. I also don't use a protective cover with my Atrix, but I do have a Zagg skin on the rear of it (clear). Had one on the screen, but didn't like the feel and removed it. The best accessory that I have for my phone is the earbuds (ZAGG) -- love'm. I also have a BlueTooth car adapter for hands free use that is good.

    As far as the phone, yes we're biased here. My wife has the Inspire and, although she loves it, I think the Atrix is better in many respects but hers shines in others.

    All in all, I'd buy an Atrix again.

    If you stuck with ATT the ATrix and iPhone 4 are your best bets, take your pick.

    If you don't mind the extra bulk, Otterbox is one of the most popular cases people buy for the Atrix. Is you do mind, Skinomi TechSkins is pretty cool and it looks like is part os the phone, but you have to be carefull with drops.

    I use an Incipio Feather Case, and even though it does not add much protection from drops, I still like it. Very thin, and tight. My sister has a Seidio Surface case for her Inspire, and it just doesn't feel as snug. She had a Casemate heavy duty case before that (can't remember the name, atm) and it fit well. Lot of protection. The Otterbox is a good solid case, I have used them before, I just don't like bulk. Hence, the Feather Case.

    I Droided this myself. Using Tapa-da-talk.
    Droid It Yourself.

    I just changed my signature. I am just cool like that.

    I like the bulk of the defender case. The few times when I have the phone out of the case, I would not want to use it as it is. It seems very slippery, so some sort of cover is needed.

    +1for the Zagg type skin. I have something similar (ghost armor) on the back because I like the profile as is but more grip is definitely needed. I don't sweat drops too much because I can take it back to Best Buy and get a new one if I do.
