How can I get rid of smudges caused by a case?

I had my iPhone in a rubber case but it has left smudges. Any tips for getting rid of them?

Hm... I don't want to be the one ruining your iPhone 4 ;)
Here's what I did with MY iphone: use window cleaner - BUT DON't spray it on the phone; spray a bit on a soft cloth, and carefully treat the affected areas as they say. If there's anything persistent, you could use one of those ear cleaning cotton buds, dab it in some nail varnish remover, and apply the stuff carefully to just that rubbery stain. It will come off!
A caveat: the front and back of the iPhone 4 are covered with an oleophobic film - to reject fingerprints and grease etc... you risk damaging that very fine coat... So try a good old damp cloth first before you move on to drastic
solutions.
And whatever you do, do not blame me :D
