    Anyone else getting nasty dust on the the areas above the speaker and under the home buttons? It's looking really disgusting to me.

    Not really getting any dust in there, but I did go to the beach with my phone this past weekend, and I did get some little bits of sand in those areas. It all fell back out though, so not a big deal. Overall I think my phone met the sand three times. Better than the iPhone 4 last time I went that seemed to find the sand every time I turned around.

    I have had some white dust, get under the those sections you are discussing, and used a paperclip to get them out.

    This and the vacuum didn't work. Thinking of exchanging it.

    How are you doing it? I was thinking Q-Tip but then cotton might get caught in it.

    Oh, hahaha, I was joking (rinsing, like I hose it down in the sink :D).

    Sorry :)

    Mine is currently dust free. You could probably use one of those compressed air cleaners[?]

    I was able to use the microfiber cloths that came with the canned air, put some water on them and have them inserted into the crannies. Works now : )

    Ew, no it doesn't. Just took away some of the bigger chunks. Many are still visible in the same spots. Very disgusting. Someone has to have some secret method of getting these out
