    Hi all,
    My droid is in the 3909 batch, and so far I've had no software problems. However, there are now a few pieces of dust that have found their way under the screen, around the edges. I keep my phone in my pocket, which I make sure I clean out every day. Is this normal, or is it something that I should exchange the phone for? I'm worried that if it's happened within the first week, it will continue to get worse.
    Thanks!

    I keep it in my pocket and don't have that problem. Although if it's bothering you i recommend you exchange it.

    Haha nah, but I have heard really bad things about the storm being a dust magnet. I was hoping the droid's casing was sealed a bit better...has anyone else encountered a dust/particle problem?

    I found a thread on this over at HF.. seems to be a common problem and some have had their Droids replaced over this.

    I believe he's referring to HowardForums.com, a site with many mobile device forums.

    I exchanged mine for a new one today, unfortunately it was from the early 3909 batch...but so far there's nothing wrong (besides the camera red autofocus). Most importantly, no dust under the screen =)

    I have dust under my screen BAD. I had the phone for 3 days and ide say about 100 specs of dust in the upper left corner. I tried returning it and they told me that this isnt replacable since its cosmetic. Seems like BS since the phone isnt even a week old. If I want to exchange it, I have to pay the $35 restocking fee. What to do, what to do...

    Go to another store or talk with the manager of the one you went to. Telling you dust under the screen is cosmetic is a bunch of bull. They should exchange it for you.

    They should replace it with no questions asked. Talk to the manager or call cust. Service and they will take care of you. Don't take crap from them.
