Official Desk Dock
Is it possible to play music through the speaker line in the back with headphones? i was trying to play music on pandora through it, and it doesnt appear to work. I was really hoping i could use it to play through to headphones, otherwise this dock is next to useless to me, since i planned on using it at work, and i cant very well be playing music out loud like that.
Edit: nevermind, i think i just found my answer. I just noticed the little footnote on one of the millions of new little pamplets that came with the phone that says it requires android 2.2, and since its currently using 2.1, i suppose it wont work yet. -_-

Re: official desk dock question
I bought one today as well.
It doesn't go into landscape. Is that a 2.2 thing?
But 39.99 for an OEM dock with wall charger was a pretty good buy IMO.

I am taking mine back. It doesn't work with the case on and the volume button on the bottom keeps getting pressed. Also if you have it connected to the PC via the USB thru the docking station, you can't access the SD card directly (mass storage)

When I updated to 2.2.1 I thought it would work like my Blackberry dock. I got the note with it working on the next release, but I wanted it to keep the cable from flopping around and have a nice way to see and sync my Epic.
Here is what I found.. Initially the Samsung Desk Home was not available. It only provided charging, I could not sync, had to remove the cable and reinsert it to sync with my desktop software.. Yes sound came out whooHoo.. But it fails if you can not use the USB to sync and mount the EPIC. So in my opinion I have a paperweight charger. Desk Home added no new features over 2.2 except a nice presentation of search, music, gallery etc..
Because 2.2.1 had problems with the screen staying confused between Portrait and landscape, a nd a few other problems like messing up desktop sync, dumping every sms, mms, voice mail into the phone log I removed the root and went back to 2.1 update 1 Eclair. Froyo is not the answer we hoped it would be, battery last 1/2 a day, turn on wifi and it last 1/4 a day.. I am glad Sprint has not pushed it out.

But i think 5.7 years is way longer than anyone is realistically going to be keeping this particular phone, and it will be longer if the screen is turned off, obviously.

There was a thread/post around here about someone using the dock, getting screen burn in and having to get replacement from Sprint. I'm not saying it's going to happen to you, but just wanted to let you know.
