    ...all over the back of my phone and a little on the home and menu button and trackball. Anyone have any ideas on getting this off?

    Isopropyl alcohol, or acetone.

    I don't think I'd use acetone. It has a bad habit of melting plastic. If you think you must, test it on the inside of the back cover first and see how it goes. That way if it does melt, at least you wont see it. Maybe try the same thing with WD40.

    Try some MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). It gets almost anything off. Although I'm not sure about what it will do to plastic. I usually just soak a cutip with it and clean stuff. Try it on the inside of the back cover.

    Ok, how about a Mr. Clean magic eraser? Or this from HowStuffWorks.com


    • If any trace of stain remains, cover area with a compress sprinkled with ammonia.
    • Rinse well and wash with a cloth dipped in warm sudsy water.
    • Rinse again and allow to dry.
