    Dust under screen

    I just notice some dust particles under my 3 month old 8800, even tough I always try to take the best care of my phone. What is the best and easiest way to get the dust out of there and keep it out?

    Here is a short video of what you can do. It will void your warranty though: http://youtube.com/watch?v=iiIl19G74C0

    All you need is a Torx driver with different sized bits (MUST have a T5 size bit), a small flat-head screwdriver, a Driver License or old credit card, and a microfiber cloth.

    Turn handset off, pull battery, pop off the bottom retaining bracket with the screwdriver (the piece that has the service provider's logo, at the bottom) by starting at the back, prying it off, the moving to the front and popping it completely off.

    Then use the Torx T5 size driver and remove the 2 screws on the back of the phone (near the top of the phone). Use your plastic card and shove it into the side of the handset where the grip meets the face plate and twist as you do so to remove the face plate.

    There you go! The LCD is exposed, you voided your warranty, and you clean it off with the microfiber cloth (don't try to use Q-Tips or paper towels, tissue or toilet paper since every little fiber gets stuck on the screen easily. You could also use a compressed air can.

    I did it and it worked fine. No more annoying dust. Keep the T5 Torx since you will be cleaning it again in 3 months or less.

    Might be a stupid question, but do any of the screen-savers work? I know they don't go up to/past the edge of the screen, but I wanted to ask. Thank you.
