    You can use Play-Doh as a stylus, it is one of the only thing i've ever seen work besides a AA battery.

    You're right, I've never heard of this. Unfortunately, I don't have any laying around to try it. Anybody else have any to try it out?

    I was stoked when I found out I can use the iPhone as an actual phone!

    But that's a nice find, now to get some Play Doh from my cousin and make a ghetto stylus.

    That's encouraging, after almost a year n a half I'm still trying to figure out how to use my iPhone as an actual phone. What's even better is after my town got 3g it's even worse. But rest assured an AT&T tech is working on it and is gonna call me within 24 hours to do a followup.

    As I was reading above I was thinking, "I wonder if Silly-Putty would work," and was about to post. Get out of my head! =)

    Lots of us use our noses as a stylus:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=808643

    To clarify, the nose is occasionally used as a convenient (yet socially unbecoming) stylus by some of us. I didn't mean to imply that some of us have more than one nose, or that we use each others' nose(s) as styli.

    But on a more serious and practical note ... I have found it kind of annoying that if I'm in the car with light gloves on (when its cold out), I can't use the screen without taking of one of my gloves.
    But I had no idea about AA batteries and Play-Doh working for it.
    Anything else to add to the list?

    Anything conductive should work, I used to use a pen covered in aluminum foil.

    I'm sure play-do left great smudges behind too...
