This dock is designed specifically for the iPhone 5 and its new lightning connector. This dock is taller than others in order to accommodate the lightning connector's longer stress relief.
This dock includes a chamber for weight such as BBs or lead sinkers and a cover which can be glued into place once the weight has been included.
This design is parametric, but I designed it in Alibre CAD so it might not be as easy to modify if you don't have the software.
10/17/12 update: I published a version of this dock for phones with a case: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32610
Print the dock and the cover.
I designed the cable channel to be narrower at the very bottom so you may need to clean it up with a hobby knife. Trim it so that you can just fit the cable through.
I designed the lightning connector channel to be snug. I had to clean up my channel with a round file just a little before the connector would fit through. Once the connector is in position, run the cable through the cable channel .
Fill the weight chamber with weight of your choice and apply the cover with glue.
