My buddy picked up an Incredible right after it was released. Switch from a Blackberry Pearl. He went thru about 5 pearls in a 1.5 year period. This is all due to his line of work. He is a custom metal fabricator. Anyone who is experienced in this field will know that metal shavings find their way into every crack and crevice you can imagine. He loves the incredible because he can take off the battery door and cover the speaker with a paper towel and then re-apply the battery door. However, even with this effort. Metal shaving still made their way into his speaker housing. This will ultimately render the speaker useless after time. The question is this: 1. Does anyone work in the same environment? If so, what do you do to protect the phone? 2. Will a stronger magnet than the one that is holding the metal shavings in the speaker housing ruin the phone. In other words, if he just uses a stronger magnet to pull out the metal, will he damage memory or anything else? Thanks for your help. Pics are attached, however, they were not taken in the best conditions, but its all I have right now.
