    Dirt and debris under the screen

    Advertisement



    Hey all,
    I'm loving my storm and constantly find new things that it can do. However, I have noticed that dust has gotten under the screen. It is only a minor annoyance, but I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem and any suggestions on how to clean it?

    About 3 years ago, there was a HUGE batch of newly released 8700 models that had this problem. Most were returned under warranty and replaced with new models that weren't affected.

    It's the #1 reason I don't have one. I've heard way to many complaints.

    Well known issue with the first gen and some of the C2 curves.
    I would return it if you are still under your 30 day warranty.

    Thanks for the advice. I may just return it. I got it on launch day, so I may wind up returning it. via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I have the same problem, but then every phone I've had always had some small particles under the screen. It is an annoyance and I hope I don't collect more dust and such under the screen!

    Speaking of 8300 mind always would get dust underneath the screen all the time from putting it in my pockets all the time. But then again I put my storm in my pocket all the time too same way as my curve. So far my storm hasn't gotten dirty at all.

    Let's not all get carried away here and be a little paranoid. Has there been any actual reports of dust and debris underneath the screen yet?
