    Any tips for using the Pre touchscreen in high humidity? I am finding that either my finger sticks or the Pre doesn't see it, and it takes several tries to accomplish anything.

    I would really suggest trying a product like PhantomSkinz. They work great and help out in humid areas!

    could be something wrong with your phone? I'm in STL and it is very very humid here all the time and I haven't had any issues.

    Down here in Louisiana it's humid most every day. Only thing I've noticed is sometimes when my phone doesn't register my touch, I need to rub my fingers together, maybe to heat up the tip, then it works properly.

    Agreed. Rubbing the fingers helps a lot when the phone does not respond.

    In North FL here, just about as humid as they come... One thing you might try is a glass/fog cleaner for motorcycle helmet visors or goggles. I used it on mine and made a big difference. Keeps the condensation off the screen...

    This is what I used, as it's what I had...

    Huh!
    I never though of that.
    But doesn't that make the fingertip more oily, which is bad for screen sensitivity?

    I just came in from 102 F with a heat index of 122 F. But I had no problem using my phone. And it stayed a cool 25 C.

    Here it's been like soup outside, 110 heat index... but the capacitive screen seems even better. It's not heat, it's conductivity... so moisture actually helps, until it gets too saturated. Cold dry air is what kills it, since your fingertips are dry.

    Made me think of the other day at work, had phone in back pocket, pulled it out to find that my rear was multitasking... had over 10 cards open and Pandora going! I have a new culprit for my battery drain issues... and may be getting a holster for work

    It's never good for a guy's rear to do any multi-tasking.
