    Disinfect? Never! Still, I wipe it down daily with moistened lens wipes.

    And I suppose you don't touch money, gas pumps, or doorknobs?

    I clean my phone with straight alcohol whenever I get the chance. I clean it constantly. Whatever I can find.

    I clean my phone when it needs it. Maybe once or twice a week. I am all for purell- keep some in my car for when I pump gas or came out of a store after paying with money. I can't see doing that to my phone though.

    I'm wary of using chemicals on my phone. I wipe it down with a damp microfiber cloth, usually every other day.

    I never clean it. Day 1 it came out the box and went into a Lifeproof case and I'm sure it looks brand new if I were to ever take it off. #nuffsaid

    I read somewhere that ethyl alcohol can be used to clean phone. Is that a good idea?

    Yes. When I can't wash my hands, I always disinfect my hands with Germ X.

    When it needs it. I use it out of its case at the gym (because I use an arm band) so my Nike+ GPS can track my movements when on the treadmill. It gets nasty and generally clean it off.

    Occasionally I clean the screen with Windex and a paper towel to get the fingerprints and other rubbish off it.
    Then I use a Wet Ones wipe to disinfect it every few weeks.

    I don't see why you guys are afraid of getting chemicals on your phone. As long as its not getting inside of the phone and it's not acid then it should be fine...

    I wipe my iPhone down with a damp cloth every couple days but have never disinfected it. I wish my hands when necessary instead.

    I wouldn't say I "disinfect" but I clean it at least once a day. I got a couple of the e-cloth microfiber cloths for electronics. Supposedly they remove bacteria too.

    I use the cleaner by Monster to clean it every week or 2. It's in an Otterbox Defender so it doesn't get too dirty.
