iPod mini belt clip tips

Macworld has posted several tips for the iPod mini’s belt clip. The first tip suggests that instead of buying a new iPod mini dock, owners with a dock for the the 3G iPod use the iPod mini’s included belt clip, upside-down and attached to the mini, to help stabilize the mini while docked in the larger opening. The second tip suggests using the belt clip to hold the mini in place while docked in Altec Lansing’s inMotion speakers, which is made to fit 3G iPods. The third tip is to connect a lanyard to the slot in the top of the belt clip to wear it around your neck. Description with photos available at the website.

Why settle for a lanyard. Get a big gaudy gold chain, with the gold ipod. Wear your ‘bling bling’ to work day!

It may fit but it doesnt work

Yes, it does work. I have tried it myself many times and it works just fine. I didn’t use the belt clip though, I use a folded up piece of paper to hold it there.

Back on topic, the best use for my belt clip I have found is turning it upside down and then placing it over the front of the iPod. The larger part covers the screen and the smaller part covers the scroll wheel. It makes for an excellent case when in your pocket.

what did you file the edge off your mini, or dock?

You guys are idiots. Did you ever think that everyone might not have the same iPod as you? If you have a 30 or 40 it works just fine because the iPod is thicker. Obviously this will not work if you have a 10-20gb.

How are they “idiots”? Neither iPodlounge nor the MacWorld article may ANY mention that this will ONLY work with the 30/40gig docks!! It seems to me that that is quite a significant oversight!

Has anyone gotten the mini to work in the 15/20gig dock?
