    At least 3 times per day, I wet a napkin with a little drop of windex and water to whip my Pro to keep it clean and free of fingerprint.

    I know I am not going to like it before I bought it. I never like any shiny surface.

    So here I am now cleaning my phone. Shall I say buffing my Pro just like anyone doing it with Turtle Wax on their sport car. I just hate it and it is annoying me a little.

    I miss the softkey and hate those fingerprint smuge on the either side of the bottom screen.

    People with OCD will hate this phone.

    Not only do I clean the screen on a regular basis, I attack the fingerprint magnet back cover as well.

    I hope to find a nice case soon, so that my OCD doesn't drive me crazy.

    Perhaps you shouldn't eat that burger while using your Treo!

    With Invisible Shield installed the fingerprint issue was diminished for me.

    No. More! Sometimes I polish and say, "wow, what a beautiful phone."

    I guess I'm OCD and a whole lot of other issues.

    The Innocase helped me out with the back. Now I need to order a screen protector to help me out with the front.

    I would recommend getting some sort of fitted case for it. I found a clear one: PALM TREO PRO PREMIUM SKIN CASE CLEAR.

    I looked on Palm USA - Mobile Products for Consumers, Professionals, and Businesses and there isn't many accessories available just yet, just pouches. The pouches look nice and all but won't help fight the finger print problem

    I must be OCD cuz I've wiped my STP about 50 times already since I got it last night. lol

    I have the Innocase on the way, but yeah, gonna need something for the screen too.

    LOL

    What is the point or stupid idea of having a phone or laptop or anything shiny like this?

    Give me any good reason.

    To help investigators identify your body after they pry the Treo from your cold dead hands. Fingerprints will be clearly visible on the shiny surface to facilitate fast and easy identification.

    I figured with a clear case you would still get all the shiny goodness minus the fingerprints.

    They are not good reason at all.

    It just that its more work on our part to buff this phone like a car with turtle wax on it and extra accessories to buy.

    I got the Innocase II/holster combination that Sprint is selling. It covers the entire back of the case and gives the whole phone a nice non-slippery feeling, as well as keeping those pesky finger prints off. I'm leaning towards using a boxwave screen protector but waiting to see what luck others have with other protectors.

    Phones: Sprint Blackberry Bold 9650, Sprint Blackberry Tour 9630, Nextel Blackberry 8350i Curve (Everything Plus Family Data 1600)

    I was thinking of doing the Boxwave thing as well.

    Chong67, why won't you buy a full body cover??

    I have OCD with everything. I clean my Touch Pro every time I see it. I don't mind doing it either. I have a Boxwave screen protector and no case. Just glad the back cover is silver with no clear coat on it. Plus its to beautiful to cover it with a case.

    I wouldn't mind cleaning a Treo Pro either.
