    I am constantly taking the iFrogz case off and cleaning the entire phone with my iKlear liquid and rags that I bought at the Apple store. I am also very careful what apps I install and what I use on the phone as I have MobileMe so every appointment is plugged in, my contacts are neat and organized, music broken down into several Playlists, I also rotate my music every 2-3 weeks because I use it a lot at the Gym with my Nike+.

    Just curious what others do :rolleyes:

    • Rotate cases (daily)
    • Change screen protectors (at least once a month) NOTE: I buy protectors in bulk so if even one speck of lint gets under the protector, it gets trashed.
    • Monitor free space on iPhone to ensure I have ~13gb free (not sure why...I just do it. 13 seems like a nice number)
    • Ensure each song on iPhone has correct album art attached to it.
    • Clean daily.

    EDIT: This is just for the "maintenance" of the phone. Playlists, apps, etc, completely different matter which deserves a thread unto itself.

    I think I may need help

    I thought I was OCD until I read this thread haha. I just want no dead pixels or dents but I'm pretty careful. Still trying to find a phone with a good screen ( not dust or pixel issues).

    Well I've never cleaned an iPhone before as much as I clean this one.

    I'm constantly getting the micro-fiber out and going at it.

    Just treat it like a phone and you'll enjoy it a lot more.

    I used it for a week with no case or shield and actually liked it more than when I had it in a bumper or shield.

    Shows how much you know about the iPhone. It's more like a computer that has the ability to make phone calls. It's not just a phone.

    I'd say I go naked about half the time...don't use screen protectors and if I do use a case, it's usually because of what I'm going to do. Like if I'm going to work, always a case of some sort...if I'm going biking, one of my more protective cases will get used.

    I just really notice the fingerprints on the phone with the new retina display. Never before have fingerprints bothered me so much. lol

    Yep it's just a phone, a tool. I have a zaggs on the back and that's it. No major damage or anything. I'm not really worried about it all that much. It's a fun "tool" and as long as it works I don't have a problem. I don't understand the extremes that people take with this thing?

    You missed the point. Or you just trying to be a jerk.

    The poster meant that it's just a phone. (IE not a small child that needs it's ass wiped every few times a day). :D;)

    +1... people who buy an iPhone for the phone part are outnumbered (unscientifically and in my estimation) 1,000,000 to 1. I make probably 3 calls a week. And one of those three is a prank call.:D

    iPhone 4 has turned me into an obsessive hand washer. My girlfriend called me out and said I was turning into a "germaphobe" but ironically enough she said it as my garlic bread fell onto the floor - called 10 second rule and blew any particles off it. Was like brand new.

    I have an iPad and for some reason the finger printsndont bother me as much. But with the iPhone 4 I find myself constantly carrying around my iMacs microfiber cloth.

    Oh and I'm real particular about every single song having the right album art work, but ive been that way since the original iPhone.

    I bury mine in the back yard twice a day so that it can have it's "alone time" and then I try to feed it a balanced diet, with an emphasis on organic fruits.



    C'mon people....it's a telephone.

    No. I put a cheap $7 case on it (rotation the case color dependent on my mood) and that's about it.

    I like when my electronics have that "used" look over a period of time.

    That would of been funny if it had any relevance to obsessive compulsive disorder.

    I agree; Screen feels so much nicer without a "shield"... I will use it on the back though.

    I love the "it's just a phone" people. It's like they say it to make themselves feel better about their own OCD tendencies towards caring for their device which cost them hundreds of dollars.

    Or some people are just douches deep down inside. Either way, I agree.
