I have a great cradle for my V3.....
My pocket!!!
I ALWAYS forget my phone in the car unless it is in my pocket.
I know it's not the best looking cradle if you want to show off the phone, but it works for me!

Hope you find what you are looking for j-man.

What is the advantage of getting the cradle? Is it only good for charging the phone or a good way to keep the phone on your car.

I am getting the Black Moto Razr from Cingular sometime next week and rather preferer to keep it on my pocket instead

It helps because Bluetooth drains a lot of battery power in most phones

Also connects the phones to the fin antenna

the bluetooth certainly does zap the battery life from the phone whilst in the car. I immediately noticed this.

Still, I just charge the phone up every night.

Yes. Bluetooth big battery drain. I just have a lighter adapter charger and usually plug the phone in for longer drives. Other times, it's the pocket. I wish there was a home cradle that was easy to pop the phone in for charging.
