    Talking Otterbox Defender on Atrix use with Laptop Dock question...

    Okay...so I don't have a dock yet but very much will own one soon, my question is : is there any adapter cable made to plug into my Atrix while still in the Defender case and plug into the dock so I don't have to remove my phone from the case every time I decide I want to use my dock? It'd just get old fast having to disassemble my phone and I'd eventually be clumsy and drop it while putting it in or taking it out of the dock and crack the screen with my luck. Thanks everyone for your time!

    Unfortunately, no, not with the Atrix 1 and the original Laptop Dock. Later phones/docks have adapters with extensions if the phone can't sit in the dock for this reason.

    Through hacking its possible, I suppose, but it wouldn't be optimal. The Webtop over HDMI hack could be used along with some extension cables, but that hack is unreliable at best. Without the hack, the phone isn't close enough to trigger the dock-specific setting activated by magnets (what Motorola calls Whisper technology.)

    I don't think the adapters available for the Laptop Dock 100 or 500 have been found to work for the A1 and the OG Laptop Dock, but I could be wrong.

    Thanks for your reply, that sucks. I guess I'll just have to deal with taking it out and putting it back in, for now. If anyone hears / knows any way to get an adapter to allow me to do this, please post a link to an adapter or whatever you feel necessary, if that ever happens. Cheers.
