Hi guys..I have been using Lumia 800 cyan for almost 3 weeks...the phone is amazing but the silicone case has accumulated a lot of dirt and stains.
Have tried cleaning with detergent/ ethanol containing sprays but have failed..
Mine stained with dye from new dark jeans pockets, I tried soap and acetone but made no difference. I have ordered a new one from mobilefun and a black one but still out of stock.
Currently using a leather flip case by terrapin its a nice case but does bulk up the lumias cool slick design.

Yes I did look on amazon but I did want an original tpu case as the footprint on the phone is minimal thanks for the tip.
I think the main downfall with the light colours is getting it dirty maybe black was a better option but its nice to change and the cyan is a cool colour, I would not like to think the polycarbonate phone itself is prone to staining though.
Cheers psych that would be good if mobilefun cannot fulfil order soon.
i realise this is an old topic, but i also have the problem where my cyan case got dirty from the dye of my trousers. i've tried soaking it in very hot water with a lot of detergent and then scrubbing with dish washing scrowler, it helps but doesn't clean it totally. i just bought a new one and it's starting to get dirty. shame, the nokia covers fit this phone the best.
