    What do you guys use to clean your droid? Windex is fine i assume since it's glass? The smudges are really bothering me

    The tail-end of my shirt works just fine--really. :) My wife smuges it up on purpose to try and get-my-goat, but she doesn't know it has a glass screen and is no big deal to get clean. LOL

    Isopropyl alcohol wipes (they just happen to be around =p) and the little shammy that came with the vwz screen protector. I avoid getting liquid near the edge of the screen and only clean with the power off. Just managed to put on a screen protector that had been off and gathering cat hair and dust for a week flawlessly and bubble-free using this technique on the droid's side and scotch tape on the screen protector.

    I use the same... I keep a cloth used for cleaning eyeglasses nearby at all times so when the smudges really get on my nerves, I can wipe them away.

    I have glasses and the little cloth thing that came with the squirty bottle of solution... I also have those little lens cleaning versions of wetnaps, so AFTER I do my glasses (who cares if those get wet) I use the rest of it to clean off the screen.. or my sleeve... or my jeans...

    I'm STILL waiting for my local Verizon to get the body glove case and I guess I'll forgo a screen protector since those seem to be hit or miss on actual functionality

    I wouldn't use any liquid other than alcohol. Alcohol will evaporate quickly, but something like Windex might leak down into the gaps in the phone and ruin the internal components!

    Some people have reported that using a little Rain-X keeps it from getting too many finger prints. Am using a screen protector so I can't try it.

    I always just use my shirt and it always takes off the smudges. Never had a problem, but I always check my shirt to make sure its clean where I swipe the phone. I also just cleaned my physical keyboard with a damp q-tip with just a drop of water or two. To clean the earpiece or little cracks I always use the can of compressed air used for cleaning and blowing out computer parts. Works great!

    Still waiting for my firmware update! Don't have enough balls to do it manually.

    No screen protector and I breath and rub it on my pants =p

    I went 2 years without a screen protector on my iphone and never had a scratch, but I also don't keep ANYTHING in the pocket I have my phone in. The screen is glass, yes- it can scratch, but it takes a lot of effort to do it.

    Screen protectors never made sense to me on glass touch screens. But that's my opinion

    I had a huge scratch from who knows where on the glass screen of my ipod touch. After that, I'm erring on the side of caution, especially as the vzw protector is all but invisible when put on right.

    You didn't hear this from me, but if you stick a paperclip inside your phone charger port and give it a nice couple jabs the Verizon store will replace your Droid on the spot, no questions asked on how it happened.

    Motorola has an extensive history of failing charger ports, Droid will probably be no different.

    If by some amazing occurrence I scratch the glass I'll be getting a paperclip out of my desk drawer.
