how have you resolved the dust under screen
I have started to notice a little bit of dust under my screen and was interested to see how you all have delt with the issue. Its not that big of a deal if its a sketchy fix. No need to f up my phone. But was curious as to the inventive ways it has been done.

I haven't even run into that yet.
I had the same issue on my iPhone, but that was because the phone was over a year old and you could tell that one side of the screen was elevated and one was dipped (as if the entire screen had become tilted). So I just assumed that dust was getting up under the elevated screen.
..But my fix for that was buying the Droid =]

No issue as I don't put my phone in my pockets.

I've not had this problem but have seen others reporting it. Is your screen slightly loose?

I've developed some dust under the screen over the 3 weeks that I've had the phone. There's nothing defective about it, everything seems tight with no gaps or warping. I do store it in my pocket but its not like it's snowing lint in there.
I'm going to call VZW tomorrow and see what they say. I'm not paying this $$$ and having something simple like dust under the top glass.
So far its the only complaint I have with the phone

Has anyone ever had any electronic device without dust under the screen because I never have. My iPod nano, classic, and touch all got dust under their screens, my previous flip phones have, my HTC Hero did, and now my Droid does but it's only noticeable under bright light. I don't think it's possible to avoid with anything unless you don't put it in your pocket ever.

I dont even know why this is on the front page. It isnt an issue
Problem: Dust under screen
Cause: Carrying phone in a lint trap
Solution: Take proper care of your phone.
Get a case if you want to put it in your pocket.
If you use your phone outside in the rain are you going to complain that it is getting wet?

You have to wonder if there is an organized conspiracy to get lint under device screens. I don't understand how this can happen. I've never had that problem and don't see how dust can travel under the screen. Certainly not on the Storm and not on Droid and not on any of my old dumbphones.GOOGLE Talk name: matrix.underworld add me if you dare

I stopped putting my phone in my pocket with the droid, and i'm dust free. My iPhone had major dust issues. Have you ever looked inside your pockets after they've been washed? Pull them inside out and you'll see an insane amount of lint that your phone would be resting and moving on all day, dust is bound to get inside somehow.

I have dust in two spots under my screen....lower left and upper right....and I ALWAYS carry the phone in the Verizon Holster. it's NEVER in my pocket. I am very careful with the phone and I'm extremely dissapointed that after 3 weeks of having the phone there is this much dust under the screen.

Interesting as I always have my phone in my pocket and both my storm and droid never had dust under the screen, (knock on wood). If you mean the microphone hole then its very unlikely for the Droid to get dust under the screen this way since the microphone is on the physical keyboard part.
