Does Not Work With IPhone 4

Summary: It doesn't work with iPhone 4, and that is not clear from this page or the packaging or the product's web site. It probably has good sound, but when I plug in the iPhone 4 a message pops up on my screen that says "This Accessory Not Compatible with This Device" or something close to that.
Summary: I received the IMT320 and immediately tried to use it with my iPod and iPod Touch. Didn't work. Contacted Altec for support. They said I needed the latest software, which I didn't have. So, I downloaded the most recent iTunes software, and it still didn't work. Tried my son's iPhone 3 and it didn't work either. So, I contacted Altec support again. They said it was a software problem. I told them that he LED light next to the "On" button didn't work.
Summary: I received this as a gift last christmas (2010) but about 6 months later, it decided it didn't want to work with my Iphone 4 anymore....It first decided to stop charging my phone while playing, which I could deal with....but about a month after that, it decided it didn't want to play music unless I constantly "jiggled" it in the dock...kinda like when you have a short in your headphones and you have to hold the wire a certain way to get it to work..
Summary: After owning this Altec Lansing speaker dock for 6 months, the volume control and shut off button stopped working. It would only operate at full max volume and I had to unplug the thing to shut it off. You get what you pay for, and this speaker dock is cheaply made.
Summary: I loved using this at my bedside while I listened to podcasts. Worked wonderfully, sound was clear and had great depth. Then, after the Amazon product return period had lapsed, it simply stopped working. My iPod no longer made contact when it was placed into the system. Now I am stuck with another piece of crap to throw away and pollute the environment.
Summary: Well I agree with most of the reviewers - this speaker does sound great. However, heaven help you if it stops working. Altec have one of THE WORST customer support departments it have ever been my nail pulling torture to deal with. My speaker stopped working well inside warranty, and as requested by them I sent mine back for replacement....two months ago.
Summary: I have had these speakers since January. They worked great till this week when they stopped turning on. For the last two weeks I have been having errors on my Ipod saying "Firewire not supported" causing issues with the Ipod. I have been able to clear the Ipod errors and still use the speakers until this week when the speakers simply stopped turning on.
Summary: We bought this because we wanted something lightweight and easy to travel with that could play our music from our nano and ipod touch. However, for the first 6 months it worked great and we were very happy with it but now it doesn't work. It seems as though the docking is not connecting with the devices. If we use a toothpick it works but if it gets bumped, and we have two small children so it will get bumped, it stops playing and disconnects. Very disappointed.
Summary: Product appeared to be a superior product but within weeks stopped working and due to a hospitalization I could not return or get it replaced. BUMMED this is my 3rd try with different products to find working speakers for my mp3's.
Summary: Yes the sound is good, but the automatic shutoff is just awful. Moreover and as reported elsewhere, when the automatic shutoff occurs, the sound volume returns to its lowest setting. I wanted to use this device as a portable sound system for presentations I do with small groups. But because of the shutoff, it's a real problem: every time I want to play a clip, I have to go back to the device, turn it on, and boost the audio.
