    I'm pretty sure I lost the cleaning cloth that came with my iPhone.:(

    Is there anyway I can get another one (the exact same one that came with the phone)? I don't want to use another material, because I'm afraid it will scratch the phone.

    Try the Shaggymac Swiper, it is made from the exact same material.

    We use these to wipe down 30" Cinema Displays in our AV room and they work incredibly well!

    Thanks, but I wonder if I call Apple, if they will send me a replacement or if I can buy another one.

    I dunno, you can call and ask. You can use any cleaning cloth like the ones for computer screens, etc. They're all the same material.

    Go to a optician(where you buy glasses) and get a cleaning cloth for glasses. That's what I use.

    buy a microfiber cloth. even a cheap one will do. at walmart they probably have a pack of 3 or more in your automotive section.

    Anthony- I know that exact feeling.
    I would seriously just go to your local Apple Store and ask for one. One time I went because my earphone jack was falling off, they went in the back and got me some new ones. I'm pretty sure they won't charge you for such a small and thin cloth like that.

    Wash DC suburbs
    Step 1: untuck shirt
    Step 2: turn screen towards torso and press phone against body
    Step 3: rub up and down furiosly like you are trying to start a fire
    Step 4: check screen, repeat as necessary until clean.

    B-b-b-but...... I don't tuck my shirt in! How do I get to step 2??!??

    Cleaning cloth? Apple will not send you another one. The postage to send it would cost more than the cloth.

    Just use any cleaning cloth. The iphone screen is very durable. I remember on the first gen iphone people tried to scratch it with a key and it didnt make a mark.

    I know you're holding out hope for an official Apple cleaning cloth, but like others have suggested you can pick up a camera lens cleaning cloth. If it's good enough for camera lenses, I'm sure you're iPhone will do just fine. :) You can get a microfiber Nikon lens cloth for $7.98 from Amazon, with free shipping. Or... you may be able to find them cheaper if you walk into a camera shop.

    Anything for optics, or even an ordinary chamois will be just as good or better.
