    Yes, you have to remove the case. the Otterbox triples the thickness of the iPhone 4.

    Try using it without the adapter.

  • Yes, you would need to remove the iPhone4 from its case before it will fit in this dock adapter.

  • You will have to remove your Otterbox (and generally all other bumpers or cases as well). However, the iPhone 4 does NOT properly fit onto the pins/connector with the Otterbox on the iPhone 4, even with no universal inserts (adapters); this is confirmed on docking stations utilizing the universal dock and adapters. To prevent damage to the pins, the docking unit, or the iPhone, I recommend using the adapter, although your iPhone will have to remain without a case during these uses.
