Had second one now since Feb and didn't seal screen because it was supposedly "fixed" by RIM, and I have no dust under screen.
That's awesome...I think some are better than others. I had one that had dust right out of the box! That wasn't good!

Anyway, I showed my first Storm to a couple of our IT guys and they knew immediately how to fix it. After I got my second one, I wanted to make sure it stayed perfect.
CircuitSealer<sup>TM</sup> Pen, #CS100P
I went out and purchased some of this at my local Frys Electronics. It is basically a super glue type substance that is non-corrosive and will do no harm to any circuit or electronic part like our beloved Storm's screen. the great thing is it is in a pen form and this makes it nearly impossible to mess up the application.
I disassembled the Storm and got the LCD out. I then took the pen and sealed the edges all the way around. I placed it aside for about an hour and came back and used a razor blade to scrape away the excess. It sounds dangerous but its not. Afterwards I reassembled and I was good to go.
I have had this Storm for a while now and used it daily in and out of my pants pocket without a case. I get all kinds of dust all over it, around the keys, in the battery compartment and screen edges. I have to blow it out occasionally but I still do not have a spec of dust under the screen. I am very confident that the sealing it the reason.
I think I should start a business and do this for people. I probably could make some money.

It does sound tempting...but just know if you dissassemble the storm, it voids warranty.
