You mentioned interferance from the iPhone when on the station. Does this only occur when the unit is switched on playing the radio / other music ? Or can this occur when the unit is in standby too ? I don't want to change my iPhone 3g to plane mode (ever) as I'll miss phone calls; so am I going to have problems sleeping, or is the unit quiet then ? (this unit would be right next to the bed as an alarm clock)

Docking an iPhone 3g. Does it fit well without a cradle ?

Thanks for any help. Almost bought the Boston unit a few weeks ago, but stopped mainly due to the interferance and reports of noise it made even on standby.

Agreed that the clock display is a bonus. I've had three different iPod clock radios, and this was the only one I didn't need to turn off on a night because of a bright display. The systems where the entire display lights up is like having a nightlight beside my bed, this was just right. Just a shame it suddenly stopped charging my iPod, otherwise I would never have switched.
