    I go out running and with it being winter here in the UK it's pretty cold, so gloves are good.

    I take my phone with me to record my route and give me updates on speed etc using Endomondo and I listen to music through it using winamp and my bluetooth headsets Nokia BH-503.

    But arghh I can't control my phone with my gloves on.

    I looked into this and you can get some iPhone gloves for about

    Smearing water all over your screen? Yeah that will help in freezing conditions.

    LOL doan't soak your finger in water, just the slightest amount is enough. Like when you get your clothes out of the dryer and you think hmm could do with another 15 minutes.

    Try leather gloves which do not have any inner lining (your touching the leather inside). Have not actually tested the DHD yet but my other touchscreen stuff works fine with such gloves. I noticed this when doing renovations with thin leather workgloves on. To be specific: SE Xperia X10 Mini and iPod Nano worked fine with 2 euro workgloves.

    I've got some fingerless gloves with a kind of mitten attachment that folds over the ends, don't have to mess about taking the gloves off. Admittedly your finger ends are exposed to the cold but not for long and it's not like we live in the Antarctic!

    hmm.
    Ive hit this problem recently when a call was coming in & I needed to answer it.
    I put the phone to my face and touched the screen with my nose.
    - no good for really accurate use of the screen. but it's good enough for the MP3 player or answering calls. I can even unlock the screen using the pattern trace.
