Cases that don't allow dust underneath?

Do they exist at all? I've had terrible luck with every case I try.

That's unfortunate. Skins are even worse imo (not for dust, but other reasons).

Curious, in what way or ways are skins worse?

Do they mare the finish?

I don't think it's possible to find a case that will prevent dust. As long as there's a gap, no matter how small, there will be dust. The skins wouldn't have dust if you clean the phone off correctly because there's no gap between the skin and the phone.

Like others have said, there is really no chance dust won't get in with the exception being the Lifeproof case, I would think. If that is waterproof then it has to be dust proof, right?

I just leave the plastic film that came on the back of the iphone on and then put the case over that. No dust and you don't see the film anyway!

And who needs that 8MP camera anyway?! Or the mic on the back of the phone!

Oh, I make a small cutout for those of course... just like the case makes a cutout.
