Has anyone convinced their broker to allow them to do this (make contributions to a conversion Roth IRA)? If so, what broker?

For what it's worth, I've been able to make such contributions to a Vanguard IRA (not a Vanguard Brokerage Services account, just funds). However, they still require the contribution request in writing.

You might try pointing Waterhouse to http://www.fairmark.com/rothira/combine.htm .

Good luck.
