    clean screen safely

    I know this is not i760 specific but on my i730 i messed up the touch screen (gave it the bell curve) by trying to meticulously clean around the edges. I guess the sweat and pocket lint take their toll.

    SO... what is the best way to clean the screen without applying too much pressure. especially around the edges. just a lens cloth or maybe some kind of solvent/ cleaner/ something that evaporates quickly.

    I love my phone . blows away the i730. and I just want to keep the screen all shiny and new..

    i dont really like the look of the screen protectors. i had one on my treo and it never really fit perfect and still collected dirt around the edges anyway.

    I've only had the i760 for a few weeks but I've had touch screen PDA/Phones for several years now. I typically use one of those cloths made for cleaning eye glasses or even camera lenses. They typically don't require alot of pressure to get the job done.

    I second that. Those little shammys work like a charm. Do wonders for your lcd monitor as well.

    For all new users it would be best to clean you screen with a piece of 120 grit sandpaper and some bleach. Keep rubbing until all dirt is removed..

    Just kidding, more then ever I am finding my self using some hot breath and the bottom of my t-shirt I am wearing. Seems to do the trick

    Make sure not to use paper products, e.g., tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, as these are still abrasive on a smaller level. Most decent wipes for eyeglasses, even disposable wipes, are usually okay.

    I use a screen protecot, so I son't worry as much, and just use the bottom of a soft cotton t-shirt.

    a little breath and the bottom of a cotton t-shirt does the trick for me. Same thing I use to clean cd's and its never caused any damage to those!

    If I'm going casual at work, I use the bottom of the shirt method. However, if I'm dressed formal and don't want to yank my shirt out of my pants, I use my tie. It doesn't work quite as well as the shirt, but does the job in a pinch.

    I get 2 cotton balls. Dab one in some rubbing alcohol and wipe. It cleans very well. I wipe the excess (which is not much as a lot of it evaporates) with the other ball.

    I thought it was funny... may be too much information if it was the front of the T-shirt or the back of the T-shirt. Crack juice and groin juice would not help the screen.

    I use LCD cleaner which is stocked at work for cleaning my screen. It works fine. It's the same cleaners that come w/ some of the screen protectors.
