When I purchased my iPhone V1 almost two years ago, it came with a black lint free cloth to wipe down your screen. My new iPhone 3GS did not come with one. Is Apple still supplying these with the iPhone and I just didn't get one?

I didn't get one this year either. I Didn't mind though since I already have several.

I bought 2 3GS's and neither came with a cloth. It's not really a big deal to me since I never used the one from my 3G (actually never took it out of the box).

Nope, no cleaning cloth here either. We lose something with every new model. With the 3G, there was no dock as there was with the first-generation iPhone. Now there's no cleaning cloth. Pretty soon, we'll get the iPhone and a USB cord only, though I'm sure it will still be in a pretty box...

You don't need a cleaning cloth with the new screen coating. Just use your hand, shirt sleeve or pants.

And if you feel too classy to do that, just call over a Pre user and say: "Hey, wanna see something cool?" and then you wipe your iPhone on their shirt sleeve or pants. Trust me, they'd be honored...and impressed. :p

Using the cloth that came with my laptop, but i think any non abrasive cloth i.e. a t-shirt should work fine.

Apart from the first week or so, I never used the cloth with my v1... I don't paricularly miss it.

The dock would have been nice, though.

I lost mine the first week I had my v1 and was pissed. Really wanted one with this one. Just found the free one that came w/ my dell xps laptop, so I guess I'll just use that.

Apparently they needed to get rid of the cleaning cloth to make the box 30% smaller...
