    I know I'm not the only one with this issue, but it looks like the red ear piece gets gunked up pretty easily. At first I thought it was just a lint trap, but I think it might be a mix of lint and ear skin/oil.

    Has anyone found any ways to clean that out?


    Loving the phone by the way.

    I used some compressed air. Not sure if that's a good idea, but it seemed to work. By the way my ears are spotless so mine was just some light lint.

    This was literally the first thing i noticed with the phone. The first time I pulled it out of my pocket, the earpiece had already trapped a good amount of lint. I tried compressed air and some tape. Neither helped all that much.

    I used some masking tape....you could use any low adhesion tape it will grab the little fibers that get stuck in there....it's weird though it happened when I first got the phone. I put my phone in my pocket. Now I never notice it anymore like it stopped. Anyhoe try the tape trick it works well
     
  5. I thought I was the only one with this problem. My entire ear piece is covered with lint. I was thinking of using compressed air as well, but may try the masking tape method first.

    Directions: Just roll a piece up in a little wad and press against it over and over. :p

    It pulled almost every single piece of lint out for me.

    I used cosmetic tweezers to pull some little ones out.

    yes thanks for the tips. I'm going to try the tape trick before blowing it in to the inside of the phone!
