does anyone have any recommendations what to use to clean the screen? Ive only had my phone a few days and its already covered with fingerprints, so I've been using a dress sock, which has worked alright.

I use a microfiber cloth. Do u still have the one that came with the phone? Some spots I noticed don't come out with the cloth and I just use my finger and rub it out then use the cloth afterwards.

I put a little of rubbing alcohol on the cloth, then wipe it. It makes it look really nice.

I use an optical cleaning solution that I also use to clean my eye glasses. It works great!

I use iKlear (the iPod/Mac case/Mac display cleaner sold at the Apple store). The kit comes with a couple of microfiber cloths and the cleaning solution not only cleans things up nicely, but leaves a nice smooth finish for your finger stylus!

These cloths are the best I have found. Personally, I am not using any cleaning agent on my iPhone other than just water. Every once and awhile I will get just a taaaaaad bit of soapy water on my finger and rub the screen and then rerub it with just a taaaaad bit of water. I then just dab it dry with a towel and then wipe clean with the lint-free cloth. I don't' see how the cleaning solution for an LCD could hurt the screen but everything I have seen says not to use this.

I have been very impressed with the durability of the screen.

I use a 3M Microfiber Lens Cloth that I also use for my glasses. Most of the time I'll dampen it lightly with LensCrafters cleaning solution. I know they say not to use chemicals but I'm careful to use the minimum amount needed to get the shmutz off the screen. And as Andy I. said on his CBS segment, alcohol dries quicker and cleaner than water.

I have some of that stuff too, but wasn't sure if that would ruin the screen or not.
