Dust under the screen
Looks like I have a spec of dust under the screen under my Droid X's screen
I visited my local verizon store hoping they'd swap it out, but alas none in stock. They were nice enough to get one on order and have it shipped to my house.
My question, is, am I being too picky? The particle of dust wasn't there before, as its in a section of the screen that's quite noticable, when reading web pages. Any idea how it got there? My concern is if one piece ended up there, then in time others could.
Oh, I'll be adding a screen protector on the new one, my other concern is that this one is virtually perfect, so I'm a little nervous that I'll not be so lucky this time around.

To the other posters - It is bugging, my biggest worry about keeping the phone vs. exchanging it is this. If one piece got in there, how many more would migrate in some how and how would this affect the resale value.
Since the phone is just a little over a week old, I'll not put up with it.

I don't think it's picky at all. The 30 days exchange policy is already budgeted by Verizon; why not take advantage of it to get exactly what you paid for?
With regards to being concerned with not getting another perfect one, I would have to take that chance if it was me. Just knowing that spec of dust is there would have me thinking about it every time I picked up the phone.
...btw, you've got me looking at my screen now from all angles!

The digitizer is not laminated to the LCD, so most, if not all, Xs will eventually end up with some dust under the screen. Just a fact of life.
Learned this the hard way from playing the Homerun Battle 3D game, where you have to press down on one spot of the screen over and over. I think the screen presses sort of suction in some dust, so that the corner has more dust than the rest of the screen.
On my fourth X so far.

I actually had the dust under the screen issue with my Hero. It was really annoying. I haven't had that issue yet with my EVO, but I hear that it is common with touchscreen devices. Good thing is, some carriers offer to clean it for free.If I were never here, you would never know.

I hope I don't get dust under my screen when I get my DX. I agree if it has it in already get it replaced. I had a Storm 1 and OMG the dust was horrible. It didn't help that all my favorite backgrounds were white. I got it replaced twice because of the dust but never after my 1 year warranty expired because I knew it would just do it again and I wasn't gonna pay asurion for a phone that was going to have the same problem.
