    Seeing is believing.

    First Storm I had, I sealed the edges of screen with silicone, worked great.
    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!

    Guys, I posted this over at CB a while back. My dust repelent method is foolproof but does require disassembly. You can check out the video at CNN.cn and its fairly easy to do. I have taken apart a Curve, a Bold and now my Storm. Its not terribly hard but if you are forceful and not careful, you can damage it.

    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.

    Funny, I have one of those pens from when I was overclocking one of my AMD CPU's. It's great stuff.

    Found a couple pics from when I sealed it.
    First one shows a rather large opening that I sealed. Plus I went around the whole edge of screen. (it's a little fuzzy, camera kept focusing on cloth below, lol)
    Lower image shows it compete.
