    Your myTouch 4G may give you access to blazing fast speeds, let you record HD video, and let you control the phone with your voice, but without the right accessories it's still just a phone. MyTouch 4G accessories can do everything from charging your device to protecting the look of the myTouch 4G to holding the device upright for you in your car. With so many accessories on the market, you may feel a bit overwhelmed when it comes time to buy them, so I created this list to help you decide on which myTouch 4G accessories are right for you.

    Body Glove Hybrid Snap-On Cover

    Body Glove Cover 

    For the ultimate in phone protection, put your myTouch 4G in Body Glove's capable hands. This hard plastic case snaps around your device, protecting the sides and back from damage caused by scratches and dents. The case includes a screen protector, to make sure your uncovered screen also gets some protection. The sides of the Body Glove case are made from a soft-textured material, which helps to keep your myTouch 4G in your hands. The case even comes with a built-in kickstand, so you can prop the device up to watch movies or television.

    Travel Micro-USB Car Charger with Retractable USB

    2-in-1 charger 

    It's no secret that we have way too many cords and plugs in our lives, so you can remove one of them from the equation with this 2-in-1 charger. This myTouch 4G accessory combines both a wall charger and a car charger into one compact unit. The unit also comes with an extra USB port so that you can plug an additional device into the charger, and a side clip to help keep the cord under control. Best of all, the charger has the T-Mobile brand, so if it stops working you have several avenues to get it replaced.

    Micro USB Battery Boost

    Battery Boost 

    There is no worse feeling that starting a day on the road and realizing that your myTouch 4G is out of power. The Micro USB Battery Boost looks to solve that problem by allowing you to carry around a full charge of power in a separate device. Just plug the Battery Boost into a standard USB port to power it up, then plug it into the charging port on your myTouch 4G when you need a charge but can't be tethered to an outlet or car charger.

    myTouch In-Car Holder

    In Car Holder 

    Even if you have a Bluetooth headset that can read your texts, there still may be times when you need to see your myTouch 4G screen while you are driving. Instead of gluing your phone to the dashboard, try this specially designed in-car holder instead. The sides of the myTouch 4G car dock fit perfectly around the device and the mounting arm is fully adjustable, so you can fine-tune your phone's position after you install it. The myTouch 4G car dock also comes with a fast release button to remove the phone in just a second.

    The Skinomi Full Body Skin provides a layer of protection around the outside of your myTouch 4G. The skin is made from a clear thin film that wraps around the entire device. This myTouch 4G accessory comes with a bottle of application solution and a squeegee, along with a set of installation instructions. The skin protects your myTouch 4G from minor scratches, dings and other wear and tear. The skin is specially formulated to resist yellowing and have a non-sticky texture.

    JWIN Black Ultra Portable Speaker

    Portable Speaker 

    When you find the speaker on the myTouch 4G is just not clear or loud enough, the JWIN Ultra Portable Speaker is your answer. The speakers are made from durable plastic and arranged in a oval design to give you 360 degree sound. The JWIN speakers connect to the port on the bottom of your myTouch 4G and have adjustable volume controls on their face. The speakers do require AAA batteries in order to work.

    Motorola H17txt


    I've extolled the virtues of the H17txt before, and there is just no denying that this is one of the best myTouch 4G accessories. Not only does the H17txt allow you to connect an additional phone, on top of your myTouch 4G, but it also comes with a program that will read your text messages to you so can keep your eyes on what you are doing instead of glued to your screen. The headset has voice prompts to help you set it up, and can even read your incoming called IDs. With all of that packaged into a stylish design, you really can't go wrong with this headset.

    myTouch 4G Universal Travel Solar Charger

    Solar Charger 

    Whether you are environmentally conscious or just want to save a little on your electricity bill, this handy myTouch 4G accessory was made just for you. The myTouch 4g Universal Travel Solar Charger utilizes the power of the sun to charge its 1800mAh battery. You can then plug your myTouch 4G into this charger and charge the battery. For those cloudy days, or winters at the North Pole, the device also includes a USB cable and wall charger, giving you two additional ways to get power into the device. It does take several hours to get the device charged, so it is best used as an emergency backup battery, but we can all think of some time when we wish we had one of those.
