    Question Combating dust under the glass screen on Storm...

    Has anyone, anyone at all, come up w/any decent way of blowing out some of the dust lodged under the screen? If I go out in the sun it is amazing how much you can see under there but under normal lighting you can still see a moderate amount in the dead center region (about the size of a quarter). Has anyone any decent advice? I'd hate to trade it in under warranty for just that...

    I have yet to hear of a good one except for the "trade it in for a new one" trick.

    I think the problem with compressed air is that you run the risk of blowing it deeper into the phone just my opinion though

    Correct, once it stuck under the screen it's there for good.

    Yeah I would not suggest compressed air. Have not heard such good results with it. I would exchange it. That's what I did. I am OCD with dust over everything else.
