    Well, i was cleaning my screen when I noticed some dust on the top left corner of the screen. I don't have a case on but man, i've only had this phone for like 2 weeks. Anyone else having this issue and how did you deal with it? I'm thinking about bringing it into the Sprint store and hopefully, they can clean it out. :eek:

    I did that with my last phone 2 years ago. I took it to them and they would clean it. About every month the dust would get bad enough to take it in. After a year, they stopped doing it and the dust got real bad.

    So honestly, if you have dust now, you will continue to get it even if they clean it. I would ask for a new phone, so you dont have to deal with it.

    Would they just give me a new phone? I'm no longer under the 30 day warranty. I had previously exchanged my other phone due to some dead pixels and got this phone. I have insurance but i don't really wanna fork out $100+ because of some dust.

    I am convinced almost everyone has this in the upper left hand corner. I noticed it early on, see other thread, and it has not increased.

    PS: search is your friend OP

    I went to a sprint store to see if they can clean it out but to no avail. Then, i called Sprint and told them my problem and they said they'll swap it out for me.
