    Can anyone suggest a good screen cleaning solution that will removing smudges, oil (from skin) to give the display a clean without the residue?

    I also do not like screen protectors - takes away from the glass display and makes it look dull IMO.

    Please advise

    Thank You

    DO not use rubbing Alcohol, it degrades the coating on the screen, use eye glass cleaner no build up and safe
    No it doesn't I've used it since the first iPhone. No problems at all. The cleaners you are referring to contain mostly isophyll alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Wow people come up with the crazyest stuff sometimes. If your worried about it mix it with a little water.

    LOL I don't care what you have done, I have hard facts on my side, friend you have no idea what you are talking about you would not notice the coating on the screen wearing away.

    I have 3 bottles of different brand of cleaners,

    None of them contain Alcohol........ None

    One is a screen cleaner from Staples Uh says right here Alcohol free.

    My eyeglass cleaner does not contain alcohol.

    Found this on the net, its not straight Rubbing Alcohol

    this may be OK since the ratio of Alcohol is very low.

    LOL it does not matter what you have done, people do the wrong thing for years does not make it right. I object to the high concentration of Alcohol thats the main point.

    been told never use rubbing alcohol on the i4.

    Get a heavily rung cloth and wipe it off, or maybe go to a local phone store and ask for proper cleaning spray.
