    I do. I have a screen protector on it and use the plastic verizon case and I take the case off, wipe it down with the cloth the provide with the screen protector, sides, back front and the screen protector itself.

    Then I wipe down the plastic case itself.

    Put it back together and it looks so nice.

    <insert sarcastic shoe polish joke here>

    I just use a microfiber cloth. Using any chemicals is ill advised. Can ruin the capacity to smoothly finger swipe making it sticky (assuming you are naked).

    Eye/sunglass cleaner is the biggest mistake.

    I use alcohol pads (70% isopropyl) every few days. There's no harm.

    There is a coating on the touch screen that makes it smooth and certain chemicals in eye glass cleaner can ruin the touch screen, remove the coating.

    I have owned 2 Incredibles. I used eye glass cleaner on my first one naked and it was really hard to swipe.

    If you have to, I don't think water will do harm - but any chemicals beyond that might.

    something made specifically for LCD screens is usually fine.

    I wouldn't recommend it. From personal experience, eye glass cleaner is the worst.

    I do also. No cleaners or chemicals. I take a paper towel, wet it, squeeze it out tight so its just lightly damp, and wipe it with that. Then use a soft cloth to dry. It's purdy.

    I'll admit to polishing the screen on my Incredible but i'll never admit to polishing my DINC.

    I have a screen protector too. I usually just wipe it with my shirt. I am anal about finger print marks.

    Do you think it's bad to use a spray cleaner made for computer monitors? I've only used it a few times but I haven't noticed any problems yet?

    I usually do that once a week, sometime I'll just pop the case off and wipe off the dirt with my finger if I'm not at home. Other than that I just rub everything down with a microfiber cloth.
