    What have you guys done to clean your Storm? I'm trying to get rid of the smudges on my screen and the lint (on the back). I've used a dry cloth that came with the VZW Storm screen protectors, but I'm afraid to use alcohol wipes or anything else that might get under the screen and damage it. What would you guys suggest I do?

    The eye glass cleaner rag thingy that come with my glasses from Costco works freakin' wonders. Even helps keep the everyday grease to a minimum.

    Now that is just for the screen. I have had to use a lint free towel to clean wee chocolate (dang kids...) fingerprints off the backplate.

    Something that also won't destroy it.

    I'm trying to keep the same phone (bought 11/21/08), and while it works fairly well, it seems to get dirty quickly, (and I'm a neat freak compared to most people). I'll consider the alcohol wipes.

    Do any accessory groups or the Crackberry store sell cleaning kits for Blackberries?

    I would not use alcohol or tissue as screen damage may happen. Tissue being wood fiber is a notorious screen scratcher. The best choice is micro fiber and glasses cleaner as "Deckroid" mentioned. Also the cleaning kits that are designed for an LCD work great if you have one.

    Spit, fingertip, and shirtsleeve.

    Not much point in getting a touchscreen perfectly clean since you're just going to cover it with fingerprints immediately after cleaning it.

    I use soft a soft paper towel and 1/2 spray of windex on the paper towel. Then use a microfiber to wipe it dry.

    Has worked great for me so far with no issues.

    Avoid tissues and paper towels. They can leave those damn fibers everywhere, including the gaps in the screen. With all the talk of stuff actually getting under the layers in the LCD display, I'd avoid anything that sheds fibers like the plague.

    My microfiber towel has put micro-scratches onto my screen, though, you can only see them when you hold my Storm at an angle to the light.

    Has anyone thought of any other ideas? I'm going to try the alcohol wipe + dry cloth, does anyone know of a good Blackberry, or touch-screen cleaning kit?

    Also, has anyone any ideas on cleaning the speaker grates of lint/dust?

    I turn off the phone (or lock it), and run my finger across the screen.

    It pains me as a renowned neat freak.

    But at the same time, it's a touch screen phone. It's not going to be absolutely pristine.

    I prefer something natural. About once a week I use Clorox Anywhere hard surface spray on a paper towel. Supposed to be safe enough for my kids to eat off of so shouldn't be damaging to the phone. And then a micro-fiber to polish it. You could also always use a solution of vinegar and water (one of the best natural cleaners), but then you would be going around smelling like a ****** bag.

    Wow, ****** is actually in the banned word list?

    Microfiber cloth has been mentioned many times. I agree. Any good eyeglass or camera lens cloth works wonders the fingerprints on screen!

    I have some solution made by Monster Cable that I use on all my electronics including my plasma TV. You can pick it in Best Buy. It's about $20 and comes with a cloth. It works great and is safe.
