    So you know that little screen on the bottom/back of the Storm? A speaker screen I suppose - Mine's got lint and crap all stuck to it - I tried a piece of Scotch tape, toothbrush, and air duster but can't get rid of it - any ideas?

    Yes, I have noticed that both screens on my phone easily grab lint (the front screen) or catch other debris (the back screen). I've used tape and canned air to clean them, but it doesn't really work and I think that's how I got some particles under my screen. The only thing I can do is to try and not put my phone in my pockets.

    Doesn't it though? I am surprised I even have a screen left after all the polishing it recieves. (Was going to say after all the "wiping" it recieves, but with the title of the thread and all...) ;D ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Lint and dust could still be a problem if that was case!

    Lol! I saw this & was so excited that someone may have an answer to keeping it clean! My poor screen gets "wiped" more times in an hour than I can count

    well, here's what made mine a bit better - use a lint-free cloth and a tootbrush and an air duster - it won't make it 100% but mine looks better

    I tried using a mini vac (for computers) on the back screen, which is the worst, but I see no improvement. Oh well, as long as the phone works, then I'm okay with it.

    I keep mine in the holster and still get it.

    FYI, definitely avoid using canned air w/ the Storm. The pressure of the air will only push the dust further into the phone and/or lcd screen.

    edit:
    and yes... that lint was driving me crazy.
    My solution was to use a pencil eraser against the metal mesh... it pulls on the lint without making too much of a mess. Note that it's likely best to use a soft, non-gritty eraser to avoid sanding down the black finish.
