However, the little slot that’s on the bottom of the bumper that let’s the iPhone dock cable hook to the phone isn’t quite big enough to work with older iPod/iPhone cables or aftermarket cables. I could understand aftermarket incompatibility, but its not even compatible with older Apple cables. The picture shows a Belkin cable, but I’ve got this issue at home too with an Apple cable.

I think the “fix” is to cut the little lip out of the bumper. I’ll do that here in a bit assuming my pocket knife is sharp enough.
