    A few people around me have been a bit ill and I really want to avoid it. I've googled how to clean a phone and most of the articles out there make sense but I was worried about the gesture based keyboard on my Passport. If I use any wet or alcohol based wipes, would it cause a problem?

    No problem whatsoever with rubbing it down (keyboard,screen and everything in between!) with Isopropyl Alcohol wipes, just make sure you don't "splash" the device with large amounts. I use 99% Isopropyl alcohol (obtained from a pharmacy) and then place a small amount on a clean cotton cloth (or towel) and wipe the entire device.

    I've heard that u shouldn't wipe over the BlackBerry logo as the glue comes off easy and you will lose your berries.

    Surfactants, which are the secret sauce in magic erasers, is a terrible idea. One of the worst things you can use.

    Would alcohol & surfactant not erode the oleophobic layer on the display?

    I take mine into the shower and give it a good soap bath and rinse and a blow dry of course after out of the shower so not to be ZAPPED.

    Works like a charm and smells purdy

    No. Pure ethyl or isopropyl sparingly on a soft cotton cloth is ideal for the WHOLE phone. I would NEVER use that Magic Eraser.

    Ethyl alcohol being considerably better than isopropyl. Although, it will remove some of the oleophobic coating from the screen. The best thing you can do its to buy whoosh.

    I kind of left something out in this discussion. Importantly, use ethyl or isopropyl alcohol sparingly on a cotton cloth to clean your screen guard display. Sorry if I screwed that up but I just assume everybody uses a screen guard--maybe not! It is true that alcohol wipes will speed up the removal of the coating. I change my screen guard fairly often so I never worry about diminishing the coating. The coating is an attempt to limit the finger print ugliness left behind, so it is an esthetic feature.

    May want to try a Damp towel instead. This will prevent you form changing the screen protection so often.

    Nah, I change mine about every 3-5 months depending on the quality of the screen guards. You buy a 6 pak and may as well use them. I feel better with a fresh guard every so often.
