Do you hate the finger prints?

I made an accidental but really cool discovery. Anyone heard of Goo Gone? Take a small amount on a paper towel and "clean" your screen. Then polish with a cloth, and voila, you can actually touch the screen without generating fingerprints all over it! Now when the phone sleeps, it shines!

Cool. I think i'd be scared though, ha. I put one of verizon's plastic screen protector things on it.. which while does work and does keep the prints down (and protect the screen somewhat) the thing has lasted about 6 days and it's already coming off.

Ok, I am going to test this theory, I just put RainX on my Droid's Naked screen. I will let you know how it holds up. Someone had to try it :p

I wasn't to thrilled with the screen protectors either.

Rain-X. Good thought! When the Goo Gone wears off, maybe I'll try that. The fingerprings really look poor. I am always wiping the phone on my shirt.

Edit: OK: Let's see Jim's result. You are the guinea pig!

I do notice now, that when I wipe the screen off, it's so much slicker, and cleans really fast.

Goo Gone is nasty stuff...

Rain-x on the other hand I will definitely try. I will try it over my screen protector as well.

Don't pour Goo Gone on the phone. I used about two drops on a small paper towel to get of some lame residue from the original phone sticky applique. Then wiped it with my glasses chamois. It has never looked better.

Sounds like a kickass idea... i use rainX on my truck constantly.... so i already got some!

For those that actually like the idea of screen protectors... dont use that VERIZON $h!t...

Pay a lil more for some quality and get Ghost Armour!!! You can get it at just about any Mall , or Best buy! I been using it on every touchscreen ive had... from the dare to the storm to the DROID... cant beat it!!

I am going to stick to the rain-x at first and see how it holds up.

Do they make Ghost Armour custom fit for the Droid or do you have to cut it?

Currently have the cheap $$it from Verizon and it's already peeling off.
