I have a stick on display cover, that has worked flawlessly.  I just wipe the 
phone and my fingers on my pants and keep going when the display is dirty.  I 
haven't really noticed this to be an issue from a contact reliability 
perspective.  Perhaps we use our phones predominately in different environments? 
  My push button phone didn't work well when it was wet either...
