iphone docking station? Fantasy

We are traveling next week (yay!!) on Fantasy and I was wondering if there is any kind of docking station in the room. I have an iphone 4 and would love to be able to dock it.
Thanks!

Yes, there is something...but it would take my DD to tell you exactly what it was and which of her electronics went into it. Sorry!

Yes there is a docking station, it's more for iPod but it does accomadate your iPhone. You may get some interference when you receive texts etc but only for a few seconds.

Just remember, you will get a hefty fee for each text and call you receive or send.

Yes I know, I didn't receive calls but every time there was this buzzing which happens when there is things happening, maybe its receiving Data or similar.
It also says on the charger this wont charge iPhones but it does.

Yep, it does work on iPhones. And if you upgrade your iphone to the latest OS, you can use the "Do Not Disturb" feature, which will prevent any buzzing during the hours you specify.

And yes, put your phone in airplane mode before you leave for dinner the first night!!!!!

Oh thanks I didn't know about the Do not Disturb feature. Will be using that because the buzzing does get annoying.

I don't take my phone to dinner, usually Dh does and he always has it on silent. Thank you for the Reminder though.

Just remember it won't work with the iPhone 5 or the new iPod 5th gen unless you get an adapter, since the connector is different!

So glad to hear it has a dock! We each have an iphone 4, so we don't need the adaptor. Will try to get the new OS before our trip and I definitely will put the phone in airplane mode. Great tip! I don't want buzzing all the time. I will probably keep my phone off most of the time, but we want to use it as a white noise machine at night and as an ipod.

This has been a real pain. I have tons of iPhone chargers lying round at home and in work but now I'm restricted to just the one that came with the phone

Hefty fee? 50 cents to send and 5 cents to receive.

I couldn't figure out how to work the docking station with my iPod touch on the Dream in February 2012 or Fantasy, or both times on Magic this summer
