    I got a silicone case for my myTouch, as I feel they're safer than hard cases (more shock absorbent) and my only complaint, is that dust sticks to it like CRAZY. I'm guessing it's from the static, but I'm not sure how to fix this.

    Any tips for keeping dust from sticking to it so much? If you're having trouble getting dust off, wet wipes are amazing...just make sure you don't get your phone wet!

    Depends on the materials they are made of quite frankly. Higher quality cases have this issue, but VERY minimal. Cheap cases have this issue pretty bad.

    I have the Trident Cyclops, and someone said that to remove the lint problem on the soft rubber edging, they sprayed it with windex and wiped it dry and it helped.

    You could get a TPU soft case off eBay. They don't collect link and offer protection, though not quite as much as a thicker style. Just do a search for Mytouch 4g TPU case

    I always think TPU is better than silicone. I just found a very slim TPU case on ebay. It is a design called TPU Fusion case.

    I'll try looking up a TPU case. Windex helped, but it doesn't do much to prevent dust. I guess the oils from our hands is the only preventative. You get what you pay for?

    Just ordered the TPU Fusion case off eBay last night. Should be here later this week.
