    Hi there
    I just noticed the my screen gets a LOT of finerprints after I use it for even a couple of minutes
    FOR NOW i have no screen protector (YET) and everytime I turn it off i wipe it with a cotton cloth (WITH A LITTLE PRESSURE- and the prints go off)

    is this method ok? also are the fingerprints something I should be worried about?
    Can they cause any damage?

    mine has never had a screen protector. i wipe off the fingerprints using my t-shirt most of the time, and no, no damage present or even possible as far as i know.

    Screen doesn't really need a protector. But yeah it's prone to prints. Just don't be so oily.

    Screen protectors are nice, but I'm wiping off fingerprints with a damp cloth. (I have been doing this since I had my 1.st gen Touch and never had a problem.). don't forget to squeeze the cloth after you make it wet!

    You can also clean the back of your iPod this way!

    sounds good, but for anyone following this advice, don't be retarded with the wet cloth please! no one will want to help you when you say you cleaned your ipod with a wet rag and now you're mad that it got wet

    I just wipe it so there are straight streaks across the screen, and that's usually fine for me lol.
