    I've read all the articles about cleaning the screen. Use water. Don't use water because there's grease on the screen and you need to clean that. Use a lint free cloth. Use a tissue. Use the same solution you'd use on a camera lense. Etc, etc.

    From your experience, what's your best method for cleaning your screen?

    I have a cleaning cloth that came with an HP laptop. It works the best for removing grease and fingerprints.

    I used premoistened lens cleanser towelettes on my 3G, but I'm not sure I want to use them on the 4. They might be too abrasiveness for the screen.

    I use this Scotch Brite High performance cloth, its microfibre and it gets all the grease out and leaves a nice shine on the screen. :)

    similar cloth to what you clean sunglasses with.

    sand paper or a brillo pad works best on a really dirty screen. With or without water.:p

    I buy those disposable wet cleaning towelettes at Costco specifically for cleaning electronics and cellphones and it works great!
